Beauty: Elite Therapeutics

|

We shouldn’t have to say it at this point, but here it is again for you stubborn types already dreaming about sunning yourselves on the first warm spring day: Overexposure to UV rays is a recipe for premature aging and skin cancer. To stop the damage (hey, we’re not immune to the lure of a sunny day), our latest secret weapon is Elite Therapeutics clinical skin therapy developed by Denver radiation oncologist Kevin L. Schewe (a frequenter on 5280’s Top Docs list). Originally created to treat cancer patients undergoing ionizing radiation, the skincare line also helps repair environmentally stressed skin.

Our standout find is the Elite Premier Crème, featuring a concoction of rare vitamins (natural vitamin E is the line’s star ingredient), botanicals, and extracts like sea whip, African mongongo oil, and super antioxidants. Ideal for sensitive skin, the crème helps to reduce inflammation, heal and nourish the skin, and protect against further environmental assaults. Also a huge plus: It’s paraben-, cruelty-, and fragrance-free.
