Protect from Your Tech
In addition to protecting our skin against UV, we need to be thinking about defending against our smart devices. The latest research suggests that blue light, also known as high-energy visible (HEV) light, may be strong enough to penetrate the skin and consequently, increase lines and wrinkles, plus darkens hyperpigmentation, especially in deeper skin tones.
Mineral sunscreens (AKA physical sunscreens) such as Zinc Oxide provide protection against blue light. This type of sunscreen works by sitting on the skin’s surface and reflecting light away from the skin.
Your Ultimate Light Blocker: Dermalogica’s NEW Invisible Physical Defense SPF30
It’s difficult to find a physical sunscreen that blends easily on all skin tones and offers critical defence against UV rays and blue light, but Dermalogica’s newest sunscreen, Invisible Physical Defense SPF30, does all three things – plus soothes the skin.
By using advanced technology, Dermalogica has created an ultra-sheer Zinc Oxide. Zinc Oxide particle sizes can be quite large, which is what leads to a visible white cast on skin.
Dermalogica’s ultra-sheer Zinc Oxide uses smaller particles, dispersed in a blend of plant oils, which gives the NEW Invisible Physical Defense SPF30 its lightweight feel and wearability factor. What’s more, the NEW Invisible Physical Defense SPF30 boasts a number of botanicals and actives to further protect and promote skin health. These include:
- A Bioactive Mushroom Complex - is composed of two botanical ingredients from the Himalayas. Together, they help soothe skin and reduce UV-induced redness and dryness.
- Antioxidant Matcha Green Tea: Rich in Vitamins A, C and E, and polyphenols, this popular Japanese tea helps fight free-radical skin damage from UV and visible light.
- Argan Oil, Vitamin E and Chamomile: this trio synergistically soothe, restore and provide antioxidant benefits for the skin.
- Hyaluronic Acid: Naturally present in the skin, Hyaluronic Acid can attract and retain 1000 times its own weight in moisture, making it super hydrating and plumping.
What makes Invisible Physical Defense SPF30 special is its remarkable disappearing power for a physical sunscreen. This means Invisible Physical Defense SPF30 can be used by all skin tones. Plus, it’s also a great option for sensitive skin, along with anyone looking to protect themselves from blue light emitted from their technology.
Apply Invisible Physical Defense SPF30 over your moisturiser using a teaspoon amount for the face, neck and ears. It’s recommended to apply your sunscreen 30 minutes before visible light exposure.
