Why did you reformulate Complexion Protection Moisturizer SPF 30 to include a mineral sunscreen active ingredient?
Mineral sunscreens offer superior protection from the sun’s harmful UV rays that can cause hyperpigmentation, however, they usually leave a white cast on skin. Chemical sunscreens blend more easily into the skin but do not provide the level of protection offered by mineral actives. We upgraded the Complexion Protection Moisturizer SPF 30 formula to include a combination of mineral and chemical active sunscreen ingredients to offer the best of both worlds – superior protection that goes on sheer. The previous formula contained only chemical active sunscreen ingredients.
How does the new Complexion Protection Moisturizer SPF 30 formula differ from the previous formula?
This new formula with both chemical and mineral active ingredients now features 11.6% Zinc Oxide and 5% Octisalate to offer broad spectrum sun protection. Niacinamide and Vitamin C have also been added, while glow-getting favorite ingredients Vitamin E, Squalane and Hyaluronic Acid are still part of the formula. There’s also a new refreshing cucumber scent.
Is this product a sunblock or moisturizer or is it both?
This dual-purpose formula is a moisturizer and a broad spectrum SPF in one! Suitable for all skin types.
Should I wear sunscreen or SPF daily?
Yes! SPF or sunscreen should be applied every morning as the final step in your skincare routine and before sun exposure. No matter your skin tone, everyone’s skin needs to be protected from the sun’s harmful UV rays even when it’s cloudy. Not to mention, a daily SPF can also protect your skin from the visible signs of aging and hyperpigmentation.
It’s also important to note that if you’re using corrective skincare products that contain AHAs or Retinol, your skin could be more sensitive to sun exposure. As a result, you should make sure you’re applying an SPF when using such products.
Do I need to use a SPF in the winter or if it’s cloudy out?
Yes! A sunscreen should be applied every morning as the final step in any skincare regimen. Ultraviolet light penetrates clouds with ease, so it is important to wear sun protection throughout the year, even on cloudy days.
