Protection from the sun is vital to keeping your skin youthful, but all too often, sunscreen formulas compromise the appearance of the skin while shielding it from ultraviolet damage. Some sunscreen formulas contain harsh ingredients that cause skin irritation, leaving the tissue red and inflamed just the way the sun might. Other products contain pore-clogging ingredients that contribute to skin congestion and increase the risk of acne.
Because she dealt with her own frustrations finding beneficial products for chronic acne, skin care expert Paula Begoun knows how difficult it can be to find sunscreens that are maximally protective but still healthy for the skin. As a result, she created the Paula’s Choice In Sun collection of complexion-friendly sun care products. The Paula’s Choice In Sun formulas provide broad-spectrum ultraviolet protection with FDA-approved ingredients. In addition, the Paula’s Choice In Sun products contain ingredients that help to improve the appearance and texture of the complexion with every use. Gentle enough for everyday use, the Paula’s Choice In Sun products are the ideal solution for fighting sun damage and common dermatological concerns.

The Paula's Choice Skin Balancing Ultra-Sheer Daily Defense Broad Spectrum SPF 30 is more than just a sunscreen--it's a multi-purpose treatment that also addresses excessive oil production, acne breakouts and signs of aging. This formula is made especially with the needs of oily and combination skin in mind.
To protect the skin from both UVA and UVB rays, the Paula's Choice Skin Balancing Ultra-Sheer Daily Defense Broad Spectrum SPF 30 contains four sunscreens: oxybenzone 4 percent, avobenzone 3 percent, homosalate 7 percent and octocrylene 2 percent. The formula also includes a variety of antioxidant ingredients to help neutralize free radicals, the particles that contribute to wrinkles, fine lines and hyperpigmentation. Among the antioxidants and antioxidant-rich extracts in the formula are green tea, super oxide dismutase, ginkgo biloba and vitamin E. Willow bark extract refines the pores, while colloidal oatmeal and aloe vera reduce sun-related redness. Panthenol and silicones complete the formula and help to condition, soften and smooth the skin tissue.
The Paula's Choice Skin Balancing Ultra-Sheer Daily Defense Broad Spectrum SPF 30 can be applied every day in the morning. The lightweight formula becomes rapidly absorbed by the skin, so you can easily apply it before your cosmetics, provided you wait a few minutes before continuing your beauty regimen. Once absorbed, the formula produces a matte finish and even helps foundations adhere more fully to the skin.
