Without a shadow of a doubt, sunscreen is essential to healthy skin, not to mention your best defence against accelerated skin ageing.
Daylight Defense Everyday
Contrary to popular belief, sunscreen needs to be worn daily, even when we’re inside. This is because UVA rays, think A for ageing, are prevalent every day and having a long wavelength, these rays can even travel through glass.
Smart Devices and Skin Ageing
New research is highlighting the damaging skin effects our smart devices pose; blue light, which is contained in sunlight, is also emitted from our technology. It’s been suggested that blue light can enter the skin and consequently speed up the ageing process and worsen uneven skin tone.
Let’s Get Physical
The good news is that we now have options available that protect against both UVB and UVA rays, along with blue light. We know one of the biggest obstacles to wearing sunscreen is wearability, especially physical (AKA mineral) sunscreens – think thick consistency and a white overcast left on the skin.
Introducing an Invisible Physical Sunscreen
Dermalogica’s latest innovation in daylight defence, Invisible Physical Defense SPF30, not only protects against UV rays and blue light, but it blends easily on all skin tones and has soothing properties.
Weightless and wearable, the NEW Invisible Physical Defense SPF30 features a specialised, ultra-sheer Zinc Oxide which sits on top of the skin and reflects light to protect skin from damage. What’s unique about the ultra-sheer Zinc Oxide is that the particles are smaller than traditional Zinc Oxide, plus they’re dispersed by plant oils. The result is a physical sunscreen that’s invisible and can be used by every skin.
Suitable for everyone and ideal for sensitive skins, Invisible Physical Defense SPF30 also features the following botanicals and ingredients to help defend against environmental stress:
Bioactive Mushroom Complex composed of two botanical ingredients from the Himalayas, help soothe skin and reduce UV-induced redness and dryness.
Antioxidant Matcha Green Teafights free-radical skin damage from UV and blue light.
Argan Oil, Vitamin E and Chamomile provide both soothing properties and antioxidant benefits for the skin.
Hyaluronic Acidboosts hydration and strengthens the skin’s protective barrier.
Invisible Physical Defense SPF30 pairs perfectly with Dermalogica’s Daily Skin Health moisturisers: Active Moist, Skin Smoothing Cream and Intensive Moisture Balance. Layer a teaspoon of Invisible Physical Defense SPF30 over your moisturiser, remembering to include your neck and ears. It’s recommended that Invisible Physical Defense SPF30 is applied to the skin 30 minutes before sun exposure.
