Exposure to radiation — and the premature aging it causes — is a fact of life, but with the right skincare, it’s possible to keep your skin looking healthy, radiant, and youthful for much longer. As you discovered in our last article, the sun’s UV rays aren’t the only cause of photoaging. Maximize your protection with a regimen that prevents, treats, and corrects damage from both UV and High Energy Visible (HEV) light.


  1. SUN PROTECTION

No anti-aging routine is complete without UV-blocking sunscreen. Although it can’t shield your skin from HEV radiation, the right SPF product can be incredibly effective at reducing exposure to ultraviolet light. The American Academy of Dermatology recommends choosing a sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher, which can block 97% of UVB rays.


Our Recommendations:

Replenishing Sunscreen SPF 36 & chemical-free Daily Replenishing SPF 30+

Tinted moisturizers with zinc oxide for broad-spectrum defense against UVA and UVB rays. Antioxidants help prevent future damage, while skin-firming peptides lessen the appearance of wrinkles. May be used as a makeup primer or lightweight foundation.



  1. TARGETED ANTIOXIDANTS

Antioxidants neutralize harmful free radicals caused by radiation, which helps prevent them from damaging your skin. The most effective way to incorporate these essential ingredients into your skincare is through a daily serum. These specialized treatment formulas have smaller molecules, allowing them to penetrate deeper and absorb better into your skin.


Our Recommendation: HA+ Firming Boost

Hydrating serum formulated with a powerful blend of antioxidant extracts, including ashwagandha (withania somnifera flower), carefully selected for the ability to provide dual protection from both UV and HEV light along with skin-aging pollutants.



  1. ANTI-AGING ACTIVES

Whatever photodamage can’t be prevented, you can work to correct. Maintain younger-looking skin using a clinical-strength moisturizer with a high concentration of actives which help reverse the appearance of lines and wrinkles, dark spots, dullness, sagging, and dryness.


Our Recommendations: Ultra Benefits® and Ultra Benefits® Eye Gel

Firming and brightening moisturizers formulated with Chromabright to fade the appearance of uneven pigment and age spots (the #1 sign of HEV damage), plus high-potency antioxidant Lipochroman® to fight key signs of aging caused by UV and HEV radiation.
