SkinMedica Complete Protection Collection

Even though it’s a no-brainer on how important it is to protect my skin from the sun’s rays, finding the right sunscreen can sometimes be overwhelming, especially with varying skin from week to week. I needed something that worked with my skin.

Finally, I tried the new SkinMedica Essential Defense, a collection of sunscreens delivering broad spectrum UVA/UVB protection, while providing sun care solutions for those with sensitive, post procedure, and oily/acne-prone skin.
The Essential Defense collection is available in three products…

  1. My skin is more on the sensitive side than not, which is why I love Essential Defense Mineral Shield SPF 35, a sheer and super lightweight sunscreen perfect for daily use. All products are oil, fragrance, and paraben-free, non-comedogenic and hypoallergenic making them ideal for sensitive skin.
  2. On days after a facial chemical peel when my skin is particularly very sensitive and sometimes a nice tint of pink, I use Essential Defense Mineral Shield SPF 32 Tinted. If I’m heading out it’s a great tinted, SPF makeup alternative.
  3. When the days are long and humid my acne-prone skin can get oily, but the Essential Defense collection has something for that too! Essential Defense Everyday Clear SPF 47 is my go-to sunscreen for lightweight coverage in a formulation that won’t clog pores.

Complete with a PA++++ rating (Japan’s highest level of UVA protection a product can receive) Essential Defense delivers advanced skin protection against the sun’s harmful rays. The PA rating system is the only quantifiable measurement of protection from UVA rays in sunscreen, which penetrate the skin deeper than UVB.
