Sunlight is without a doubt your skin's worst enemy, bombarding it on a daily basis with the UVA and UVB rays that promote premature aging and skin cancer. Statistics show that one in six individuals will develop skin cancer, and 90% of these cancers are the direct result of ultraviolet (UV) radiation from the sun. In fact, a severe sunburn before the age of eighteen exponentially increases your skin cancer risk, making a comprehensive program of sun protection vitally important for clients of all ages. Dermalogica Daylight Defense is comprised of formulations that provide an invisible shield against UVA and UVB rays while working with each skin condition to improve its overall appearance and health. Research has found that antioxidant vitamins are as important as sunscreens when defending skin from the aging and burning effects of damaging UV light and free radicals. For this reason, four of our formulations contain exclusive UV Smart Booster Technology, a customized micro-capsule that safeguards antioxidant vitamins C and E, then bursts open upon contact with UV rays, releasing the vitamins for maximum free radical protection. We offer a choice of two sunscreen technologies: chemical- based formulations that protect against UVA and UVB rays by absorbing them, and physical sunscreens that actually reflect damaging rays.
