SkinCeuticals offers protection against UVA, UVB and IRA! Contest!

Like we don't have enough to think about already when it comes to sun protection but it would seem that now just protecting ourselves from UVA and UVB isn't enough - we have Infrared Radiation to worry about too!
Recent studies confirm that Infrared Radiation (IRA) is responsible for accelerated skin aging. Similar to UVA and UVB, you are exposed to IRA daily. 
Even more worrisome, new studies suggest that IRA penetrates the skin more deeply than UVA and UVB causing free radical damage and accelerate signs of aging. Infrared radiation accounts for 54% of the total solar energy reaching the skin whereas UVA and UVB only make up 7% of the total spectrum and IRA reaches dermal layers.
It seems kind of hopeless as current sunscreen technology can’t protect the skin from IRA, but thankfully SkinCeuticals antioxidants can. SkinCeuticals C E Ferulic - 30ml - $152 - (find more info about it here) and SkinCeuticals Phloretin C F - 30ml - $160 - (find more info about it here) - have been clinically proven to prevent damage caused by IRA.  For ultimate protection, SkinCeuticals recommends using a broad spectrum sunscreen, such as SkinCeuticals Physical Fusion UV Defense SPF 50 - 50ml - $39 - (find more info about it here) - AND a SkinCeuticals antioxidant. This powerful combination of products will both prevent and protect the skin from the harmful IRA, UVA and UVB rays.
Want to check it out for yourself? For a store locator visit www.skinceuticals.com/canada

Better yet, win it! We are offering 5 of our lucky readers a SkinCeuticals “Prevent and Protect” prize pack (including one SkinCeuticals antioxidant and one Physical Fusion UV Defense SPF 50) valued at $200!

This contest is open to all our Canadian followers and it's very easy to enter, just leave a comment letting us know that you follow through Google Friend Connect or Facebook Networked Blogs (if you aren't a follower you can do that now - sign up buttons are in the right sidebar).

  8. Although the price may give some sticker shock, some of the most effective skin treatments can be in the $100s per a few ounces. The benefits far outweigh the costs. If you can, try these, if you can't afford them, don't rely on cheap imitations, your skin is not worth the risk.

    I have oily and problematic skin, so I believe Phloretin CF would be the best antioxidant for me.
