Skinceuticals Daily Sun Defense SPF 20

Suitability, performance and superiority of this product against other options are only guaranteed when prescribed.

Skinceuticals Daily Sun Defense SPF 20

Arguably the most effective and elegant of the zinc oxide sunscreens providing comprehensive reflective protection against the effects of UVA, the trojan horse of premature aging of the skin.

The chemical sunscreen component of this product is encapsulated to forestall irritation or possible long-term problems attributable to daily use — the only use which provides meaningful photoprotection.

Provides moisture suited to any skin type prone to a degree of dehydration.

Patients with oilier, shine-prone skin will prefer the drier finish of Skinceuticals Ultimate UV Defense SPF 30.

Both Skinceuticals Daily Sun Defense SPF 20 and Ultimate UV Defense SPF 30 provide protection in excess of their stated SPFs.

Skinceuticals Daily Sun Defense SPF 20 Mode of Action

Ultra-fine zinc oxide reflects and encapsulated octinoxate absorbs the broadest gamut of carcinogenic and aging UVB and UVA radiation, responsible for photoaging.

If used as directed, provides up to 40% protection against photoaging.

Skinceuticals Daily Sun Defense SPF 20 Instructions for Use

Apply as the last step of any skincare routine (before any make-up).

For increased photoprotection, apply after photoprotective antioxidants, such as those available in Skinceuticals Serums and Corrective Moisturizers.

Diverse topical antioxidant use is preferred over single antioxidant use.

Application after Skinceuticals C E Ferulic provides approximately 90% complete protection against photoaging.

To be effective, the product must be applied generously — you should aim to use 90 mL every 45 days or so.

Skinceuticals Daily Sun Defense SPF 20 Advanced Usage

Enhance the tone and wear of the sunscreen by resurfacing the skin with a product such as Skinceuticals Intense Line Defense or Jan Marini Bioglycolics, and by moisturizing underneath with sodium hyaluronate.

For enhanced photoprotection, reapply once daily (around midday), or brush the skin with a powdered sunscreen brush such as IS Clinical SPF 20 Powder Micronised Physical Sunscreen Brush.

Skinceuticals Daily Sun Defense SPF 20 Notes on Extended Use

Apply in the same manner to the hands, ears and all sides of the neck for the same photoprotective effect.

The water-resistant sunscreen Skinceuticals Sports UV Defense SPF 45 is usually preferable for use on hands.

Skinceuticals Daily Sun Defense SPF 20 Contraindications to Use

None — chemical encapsulation generally prevents sunscreen allergy in prone individuals and protects healthy individuals from developing sensitivities.

Skinceuticals Daily Sun Defense SPF 20 Compare and Contrast

Most similar to IS Clinical Healing Treatment Sunscreen.

Individuals with shine-prone skin will prefer the drier finish of Skinceuticals Ultimate UV Defense SPF 30.

Skinceuticals Daily Sun Defense SPF 20 Further Information

Refer the discussion and information surrounding photoaging, photoprotection and sunscreens.

Inform your use in conjunction with the clinical documents A Comparison of 33 Sunscreens and A Year of Photoprotection.

Compare with Alyria Corrective Protection SPF 30 Oil Free Lotion.

Note: SPF regulation and numbers differ by region. US SPF figures are quoted.

Please Note: in case of broken capillaries, the preferred sunscreen is Melbourne Dermatology Broken Capillaries Sunscreen SPF 30+.
