All Year-Round Protection

As the summer winds down, the sun’s rays may seem less bright and hot, but your skin is still susceptible to sun damage. Though peak UVB rays are most responsible for sunburns, we get UVA rays all year round, all day long, even through windows. Ultraviolet exposure is not desirable for many reasons, primarily because it’s responsible for free radical formation which is associated with the breakdown of the skin’s elastic and collagen fibers, causing fine lines and wrinkles. Other changes we may see in the skin is irregular coloration, pigmentation, and reddish blood vessels. Most importantly, skin cancer has been clearly linked to cumulative UV.

The first weapon should be a broad spectrum UVB and UVA sunscreen. Fortunately, with the FDA approval of Mexoryl, we now have Anthelios which guarantees us the most stable form of broad spectrum UVA and UVB protection. However, a sunscreen is not enough. Combining an antioxidant with your sunscreen is invaluable to helping combat free radical formation. Much research has shown that Vitamin C has been the most effective antioxidant. Some of SkinCareLab's favorites include SkinCeuticals C E Ferulic as well as La Roche-Posay’s Active C.

So jumpstart your back-to-school season and protect yourself to the max. Have your favorite sunscreen and antioxidant in your back pocket. As always, we hope you visit us soon and take advantage of our special offer that’s good until Labor Day. See the coupon below for more information.
