SkinCeuticals Launched a New Sunscreen Just in Time for Warmer Weather
Meet Light Moisture UV Defense SPF 50
Looking for a new sunscreen to help keep your face and body skin protected against harmful UV rays? Look no further than SkinCeuticals new Light Moisture UV Defense SPF 50 Sunscreen! Keep reading to find out why this SPF 50 deserves to join your sunscreen arsenal.
Sunscreen should be a staple in your skin care routine year-round, but let’s face it: not everyone is as diligent about their sun protection day in and day out. For many people, sunscreen use is simply relegated to prolonged periods of time spent outdoors, such as during a summer beach day or backyard BBQ. While that’s not the recommended course of action—keep in mind, the sun never takes a break even when the weather is dismal—the connection between sunscreen and warmer weather makes sense. With outdoor activities on the horizon, now is really the time to get serious about sun protection if you haven’t already. To start, you’ll have to arm yourself with a powerful broad-spectrum sunscreen, like SkinCeuticals Light Moisture UV Defense SPF 50. The oil-free formula just launched recently, and works double-duty for face and body skin.
THE IMPORTANCE OF SUNSCREEN
Sunscreen is important for many reasons. It can help defend our skin against harmful UV rays, which can cause visible signs of premature skin aging—think: wrinkles and fine lines—and even some cancers. According to the Skin Cancer Foundation, over the last 30 years more people have had skin cancer than all other cancers combined. One of the best ways you can decrease your risk is by applying a broad-spectrum SPF value of 15 or higher, and by heeding additional sun protection measures. This can include limiting your sun exposure, especially during peak hours of 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., wearing protective clothing such as a wide-brimmed hat and long sleeves, and seeking shade as often as possible.
Editor’s note: There currently isn’t a sunscreen on the market that can block 100% of the sun’s harmful UV rays, which makes it even more crucial to take additional sun protection measures. And whatever you do, don’t quit your sunscreen use in the colder months or when it’s cloudy!
A SUNSCREEN FOR FACE AND BODY: SKINCEUTICALS LIGHT MOISTURE UV DEFENSE SPF 50
Think your sunscreen application should stop at your jawline? Think again. New York-based dermatologist and Skincare.com consultant, Dr. Joshua Zeichner reminds us, “We have mastered applying sunscreen on our faces, but often neglect our ears, hairline, hands, chest, and neck. If these areas go unprotected while you have sunscreen on your face, you may tend to stay out in the sun with a false sense of security that you are fully protected. This puts those unprotected areas at even greater risk for sun damage.” With SkinCeuticals Light Moisture UV Defense SPF 50, you can apply sunscreen to your face AND extend that protection to your body skin without switching products.
