Think your sunscreen is offering you full protection from ultraviolet rays? Think again. Many sunscreens, particularly lower quality brands, don't offer full protection against ultraviolet radiation. Even those that do shield the skin from both ultraviolet A and B rays usually don't completely protect the skin against damage caused by free radicals, highly reactive molecules that cause cellular damage, which drives the aging process. Because sun exposure is a common source of free radicals, these inferior sunscreens just can't fully prevent the development of sun-related signs of aging. If you want to enjoy fun in the sun without having to worry about its effects on your complexion, you need to discover SkinMedica In Sun Products.
The SkinMedica In Sun Products lineup contains sunscreens fortified with antioxidants. These nutrients have the ability to neutralize the free radicals contained in sunlight before they can damage the skin cells. As a result, SkinMedica In Sun Products are uniquely able to protect the skin and reduce the risk of the appearance of lines, age spots and wrinkles as well as sunburn and skin cancer.

Additional SkinMedica Products Information
For complete sun protection, make the switch to SkinMedica sunscreens, formulated by dermatologist Dr. Richard Fitzpatrick. The effectiveness and gentle nature of SkinMedica In Sun Products have led to their approval by the National Skin Cancer Foundation.
The SkinMedica TNS Ultimate Daily Moisturizer SPF 20 combines effective sun protection and a nourishing moisturizer in one convenient tube. To shield the skin from both UVA and UVB rays, the formula contains zinc oxide and octinoxate, two FDA-approved sunscreens. Rich shea butter in the moisturizer softens and conditions the complexion, while yeast extract, coenzyme Q10 and green tea leaf extract offer antioxidative benefits.
The SkinMedica Environmental Defense Sunscreen SPF 50 contains UV ProPlex, a unique delivery system that helps ensure that the blend of sunscreens in the formula fully penetrates the tissue to protect the middle layer of skin, rather than just the outermost layer. This blend of sunscreens includes octinoxate 7.5 percent, octisalate 5.0 percent, oxybenzone 6.0 percent, octocrylene 2.0 percent and zinc oxide, all of which are approved by the FDA for use as active ingredients in sun protection products.
The SkinMedica Daily Physical Defense SPF 30 is based entirely on the mineral sunscreens zinc oxide and titanium dioxide, making it an excellent choice for sun protection for those with sensitive skin. The formula is hypoallergenic and free of known irritants, including PABA and artificial fragrances. In addition, the sunscreen is oil free, so that it can be worn beneath cosmetics and will not clog the pores.
