Get double the protection for your skin from SkinCeuticals!

It's the perfect time of year to be thinking about your skin protection and what it means for your skin! You are probably already aware that most of visible aging is caused by environmental damage - mainly from the UVA and UVB exposure you get from the sun - but what you may not know about is infrared radiation (IRA) exposure which is what is responsible for accelerated skin aging - yikes!

Studies suggest that IRA penetrates the skin more deeply than UVA and UVB causing free radical damage which accelerates signs of aging. This means that ideally, not only do you need a daily sunscreen, but also something to protect skin from free radicals.

SkinCeuticals already has that covered with topical antioxidant serums that work below the skin's surface to neutralize UV and IRA induced free radicals which cause environmental skin damage such as fine lines, wrinkles, dark spots and lost elasticity. By strengthening skin's natural defense system against free radicals not blocked by sunscreens, they help protect the epidermal and dermal layers from the inside to correct visible premature aging.

You have a couple of choices: C E Ferulic - 30ml - $180 - increases firmness and replenishes lipids to reduce wrinkles and is ideal for dry, normal and sensitive skin; or

Phloretin CF - 30ml - $180 - diminishes hyperpigmentation and accelerates cellular renewal to help retexture skin and is ideal for oily, problematic and normal skin.

And of course you still need the sunscreen - great choices are: Sheer Physical UV Defense SPF 50 - 50ml - $46 - a weightless, mattifying fluid great for all skin types - even very sensitive, oily and acne prone. Or if you like to add a bit of tint try Physical Fusion UV Defense SPF 50 - 50ml - $46

Available medical and high-end spas across Canada or easily online at: https://beautysense.ca/brands/skinceuticals.html
