What Sunscreen Is Right For Me?

Recently, we discussed the importance of protecting your skin with sunscreen. If you missed it, you can read the previous article here.


While it's critical to understand why you need to use sunscreen, unfortunately, that's only half the battle. Once you become aware of this fact, you need to do your research and decide what sunscreen products do and don't work for you.



At The Spa Room, we carry a wide range of sunscreen products from Laboratoire Dr. Renaud. Every Laboratoire Dr. Renaud sunscreen is a combination of sun filters and exceptionally high performing biological protection.


Here are our must-have's for optimal sun protection.
