Keep those messy and damaging sun rays away with this extra protection barrier! In conjunction with a daily sunscreen, everyone should wear a daily antioxidant, such as SkinCeuticals Phloretin CF®. “The science behind this antioxidant product is impeccable. The formula is light and non-sticky, and can be easily layered under sunscreen and makeup.” The product contains several antioxidants, which neutralize free radical damage and protect against oxidative stress — the factors that lead to premature aging, loss of elasticity, and hyperpigmentation. Here’s what SkinCueticals has to say about how it works.
Phloretin CF® represents a new class of preventive and corrective topical antioxidant treatment. After five years of extensive research, SkinCeuticals developed this patent-pending breakthrough technology combining the newly-discovered, broad-range power of phloretin with vitamin C and ferulic acid in a biodiverse formulation to divide and conquer sources of damage at every level.
Phloretin CF®, a broad-spectrum treatment, protects against not only free radicals, but the range of other reactive molecules known to cause damage and DNA mutations among the integral cell types. In addition, it corrects existing damage by stimulating the synthesis of essential proteins and fibers and accelerating cell turnover. The result — a strengthened support structure on the inside and a more youthful, firm, radiant appearance on the outside.
If you are methodical about using phloretin-based products, you can actually:
- Prevent premature signs of aging and correct existing photo-damage
- Accelerates cell turnover
- Divide and conquer the range of reactive oxygen species (ROS) throughout the skin
- Prevents cell mutation by shielding your skin’s DNA
- Boost the critical skin support structure that helps you to look younger
- Inhibit UV-induced discolorations
For the maximum benefit, make sure to apply 4-5 drops to a dry face, neck and chest once in the morning after cleansing. Follow with SkinCeuticals Hydrating B5 Gel and a SkinCeuticals moisturizer and sunscreen. You can buy the line online or at Beverly Hills Plastic Surgery.
