We have two new products from Colorescience that are designed to protect your skin from environmental aggressors. Sun exposure – one of the aggressors – isn’t the only factor that we are exposed to daily. Environmental aggressors – that can contribute to skin damage and premature aging – include:

  • Pollution impairs skin barrier function, breaks down collagen, causes inflammation, and can cause hyperpigmentation
  • High Energy Visible (HEV) light, also known as “Blue Light”, is emitted from LED lights and digital devices (screens). Long term exposure can cause inflammation, skin color changes, and weakening of the skin’s barrier.
  • Infrared Radiation exposure comes from anywhere that emits heat – hair dryers, ovens, the sun – and studies have shown that it may generate free radicals that alter collagen and elastin structures in the skin.
  • UVA / UVB (UVA = “aging rays”; UVB = “burning rays”) rays are primarily responsible for aging of the skin.

Colorescience Sunforgettable Face Shield SPF 50Colorescience has two sun protection products that shields your skin against sun rays and harmful aggressors like those described above:

  • Sunforgettable Total Protection Face Shield SPF 50
  • Sunforgettable Total Protection Body Shield SPF 50

Both are powered by EnviroScreen Technology (an exclusive blend of ingredients and patented sunscreen actives to create a barrier on the skin) for total protection against environmental aggressors. The Face Shield and Body Shield are:

  • Weightless and blend invisibly into all skin tones
  • 12% Zinc Oxide
  • Hydrating, calming, and antioxidant-rich
  • Mineral-based
  • Oil-free, hypoallergenic
  • Recommended by the Skin Cancer Foundation

Days of longer and more intense sun are just ahead of us. Protecting your skin from harmful sun rays everyday (rain or shine) pays off in the future. Here’s why:

  • Our skin can (and will) prematurely age based on environmental factors such as exposure to UV radiation.
  • UVA and UVB radiation actually changes the way our skin cells make chemicals and affects the protective functions of our skin.
  • The damage to our skin from the sun, known as “photoaging”, accumulates over time and lessens your skin’s ability to repair itself.
  • Every time we are exposed to the sun without proper protection changes in the skin occur and these changes will alter how our skin looks and feels.

The best way to prevent premature aging, wrinkles, leathery skin, “liver” spots, freckles, skin growths, thinning and/or loose skin, and discoloration is to protect your skin from the harmful UVA / UVB rays year round. A great misconception is that a person only needs to wear sun protection during long exposures to the sun but studies show that brief exposures (to and from the car, in the office near a window) do add up.

We carry many highly effective sun protection products at our San Jose MedSpa. Ask one of our staff members for recommendations, we’d be happy to help you!
