Do you live on planet earth? Then you need Vogue’s #1 SPF (ahem…DNA-Repairing SPF)

Vogue recently rated the Best Dermatologist-approved sunscreens of this year, and I was excited to see that my new fave mineral spf came out on top:

ISDIN Eryfotona Actinica® Ultralight Emulsion SPF 50+, $50

“I always prefer lightweight physical blockers to chemical sunscreens, plus this one contains DNA Repairsomes that help to reverse harmful effects caused by UV rays while also protecting skin from future damage.”
Dendy Engelman, M.D., New York

Why it’s fabulous:

1) Technology: DNA Repairsomes! These are enzymes that actually work to repair damaged DNA. Wow wow wow!!

2) It’s a lightweight, mineral SPF fluid- not goopy, and doesn’t smell like coconuts.

3) The bottle is really a pretty generous size, I would consider it a great value for the technology feature.

ISDIN Eryfotona Actinica® Ultralight Emulsion SPF 50+: hard to say, easy to use!What will it do for you?

What will it do for me?

1) DNA is damaged by well, generally bring alive and living on planet earth. Aging, pollution, chemicals, and of course sunlight (not just from that one time on vacay, even just on a daily basis).

This causes age spots, wrinkles, broken blood vessels, crepe-like changes to the skin, and of course: skin cancer.

The DNA Repairing enzymes in ISDIN Eryfotona Actinica Ultralight Emulsion are activated by daylight. So, instead of establishing lots more damage while driving to work or walking the kiddos to school every day, you’re potentially reversing damage while protecting your skin with mineral spf.

That’s right: treat and prevent skin damage at the same time.

Features

  • Anti-Aging: Prevents brown spots, fine lines, wrinkles, and sun damage.
  • Skin Cancer and AK prevention/treatment: Used as an adjunct therapy to treat Actinic Keratosis, this product is perfect for everyone, but especially if you’ve ever had an AK or previous bout with a skin cancer.
  • It’s Gentle: Mineral, titanium dioxide SPF (non- chemical) makes it great for All Skin Types, even sensitive and acne-prone
  • Fluid formulation: easy-to-use and apply
  • Cosmetically Elegant: Very subtle, fresh scent, won’t affect makeup, doesn’t feel greasy
  • Matte finish -but not powdery or dry- won’t run into your eyes while you’re working out

How To Get It:

Dermatologists and physicians all over are now recommending and carrying this at their offices. Chances are, your Derm, physician’s office, or local med spa carries it.

Check it out here on the ISDIN site to find a location near you.

If you’re local to the Chicago area, you can call our office (with no charge for shipping) DuPage Medical Group – DMG Aesthetics, The Office of Dr. Danahey: 630-545-7840 

We’d love to hear from you.

And in the meantime, stay fabulous my friends!

Drug store shout out: A Great Way to Reapply

 

Spotted on shelves at Whole Foods, Fruitfull Yield and healthstores near you, a high-quality, good buy for re-application -  Spotted on shelves at Whole Foods, Fruitfull Yield and healthstores near you, a high-quality, good buy for re-application

We hear it all the time: reapply, reapply, reapply.

SPF (regardless of the sun protection factor… SPF 10, 15, 30, three-zillion, whatever) begins to break down minutes after you put it on. This is especially true when swimming or sweating.

But what about the SPF you put on your face in the morning? Many of us will put make up on over that, and go on with our day, unable or unwilling to slather creamy stuff all over to reapply.


 

Here’s a great way to reapply without the goop: Mineral SPF 30 Brush-On Sun Defense.

My original mineral brush-on loves are Colorescience Sunforgettable and Peter Thomas Roth, but if you’re not in the mood to shell out $30-$64, this is a theProductPro-approved budget-friendly version!

This great mineral spf buy ($16.99-$19.99, depending on where you buy it) is a Paraben-free, 100% vegan, and non-chemical sunscreen that looks good on many skin types.

Try keeping it in your handbag and dust on the backs of your hands, face, neck, and chest before hopping in your car to drive home from the office. Or, use it to reapply while out and about.

The Mineral Fusion website has a 15% off coupon right now if you sign up for emails, but they seem to be low on stock, depending on when you check for it. If you’re the instant gratification-type, pick it up at a health food store, Amazon, or an Ulta near you!

Until Next time, Stay Fabulous my friends!
