Especially now that the summer months are upon us, there’s a heightened focus on “physical sunscreens.” Chances are, if you read beauty magazines, you’re familiar with the concept: those of us with very sensitive skin—and those of us who prefer beauty products free of chemicals—now have several options when it comes to sun protection that relies solely on physical blocking agents, like zinc oxide and titanium dioxide. But how can we be sure we’re choosing products that will adequately protect us from UVA/UVB rays?
One undeniably excellent choice comes from one of DermStore’s favorite physician-strength brands: SkinCeuticals. Known for their highly efficacious, scientifically backed formulations, SkinCeuticals recently introduced Physical Fusion UV Defense SPF 50, an exciting sun protection product for women who wish to steer clear of chemical sunscreens. The ultra-sheer, mattifying fluid contains translucent color spheres, which complement any complexion beautifully. What’s more, the paraben-free formula gets a boost from artemia salina, a plankton extract that bolsters the skin’s natural abilities to defend itself against heat and UV rays. The result is a product that’s remarkably complete and completely reliable. SkinCeuticals Physical Fusion UV Defense SPF 50 has earned a permanent place in our makeup bags for its ability to protect and perfect.
