As I mentioned a few weeks ago, there is only one bona fide anti-aging treatment for your skin. It’s called sunscreen.
Sunscreen’s job is to protect your skin from the damaging UVA and UVB rays of the sun. By preventing sun damage, sunscreen helps you prevent 90% of the signs of visible aging the sun is responsible for.
It’s true. Most research has concluded that environmental factors and lifestyle factors that you can control like sun exposure, diet and exercise are responsible for 90% of the visible signs of aging like fine lines and wrinkles, sagging skin and dark spots.
Of these, sun damage is the runaway villain.
The solution? Prevent sun damage before it happens by using sunscreen every day. No matter whether it’s sunny, cloudy, rainy, or snowing. E very day, even if you’re going to be driving or indoors most of your day.
When I talk to people about sun protection, they’re often frustrated about sunscreen. They know they should be using it more than they do.
But they’re concerned about the chemicals in some sunscreens (oxybenzone, octinoxate, homosalate, avobenzene, and octisalate have been shown to get into your bloodstream).
They’ve tried mineral sunscreens but aren’t wild about the white cast that a lot of them give to your skin. I call it ghost face and it’s not pretty.
I have a new solution.
If you want a moisturizing mineral sunscreen in a lotion form that goes on clear, All Weather Defense 2 SPF 30 was made for you.
The active ingredient is zinc oxide, which is actually good for your skin. It is naturally broad spectrum so it protect you from both UVA and UVB rays.
And the other ingredients, like super stable oil soluble vitamin C, coconut oil (vitamin e), and three types of turmeric, work to fight any free radicals that slip through.
Avocado oil, sesame oil, and shea butter work together to moisturize and protect your skin barrier (which also helps with protection from wind and rain).
Bisobol, which is derived from chamomile, soothes your skin.
All Weather Defense 2 SPF 30 is a powerful moisturizer all on its own or you can use it over your regular moisturizer.
And, All Weather Defense 2 goes like a lotion over your serum or moisturizer or make up and gives you protection against both UVA and UVB rays. No white “ghost face” or sticky residue.
All Weather Defense 2 comes in a 1 oz airless pump bottle and a little goes a long way. It’s really designed to be used on your face, neck, chest, and hands.
In New Mexico, where it’s hot and windy (and sadly smoky) right now, I’m finding that All Weather Defense 2 is an easy-to-use life saver.
