shield skinceuticalsGorgeous glowing skin is a must for summer. We all know the sun’s rays are harmful to our skin, but that’s not the only factor aging us. Ozone pollution is now shown to contribute to signs of premature aging by 39%. Yes, you heard that correct 39%!

What exactly is ozone pollution? Ozone is a naturally occurring colorless gas. There are two types of ozone “good” and “bad”. The “good” ozone is found in the earth’s upper atmosphere. The “bad” ozone is located at ground level and is the source of ozone pollution, which is caused by reactions between chemicals found in car engine emissions, household cleaning products, and sunlight. Ozone pollution may contribute to signs of atmospheric aging such as fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin.

Sunscreen and antioxidants are two vital components of an effective skincare routine.

SkinCeuticals has you covered with this two-piece kit that offers sunscreen and antioxidants. The kit offers your choice of C E Ferulic or Phloretin CF. Both products have antioxidants to prevent atmospheric aging caused by ozone pollution. One of our medical estheticians can determine which is best for your skincare needs.

Your second product in the kit is a sunscreen. SkinCeuticals sunscreens protect your skin against the risk of skin cancer and UV-induced premature aging. Their sunscreens offer UVA (the “aging” rays) and UVB (the “burning” rays) protection. SkinCeuticals sunscreens are made up of natural mineral ingredients that have been found not harmful to coral reefs.

So be summer-ready with SkinCeuticals Shield Against Atmospheric Aging kit. These kits won’t be available for long because of the great value; the sunscreen is free with your purchase of either C E Ferulic or Phloretin CF.  This kit makes a great Mother’s Day gift!
