Your skin has a natural reservoir of protective antioxidants that allow it to repair itself after daily damage from sunlight, air pollution, alcohol consumption, cigarette smoke and a number of other sources. However, this reservoir is not limitless and is quickly depleted. Antioxidant protection can help your skin from damage on a cellular level that can result in fine lines, wrinkles, discoloration and even skin cancer.
A proper skin regimen includes three fundamental elements: prevention, protection and correction. The first step, prevention, starts with a daily topical antioxidant. Spa San Luis offers SkinCeuticals’ Anti-Oxidant C E Ferulic or Phloretin CF, which both have been rated No. 1 Reader’s Choices in Allure magazine as the best antioxidants on the market.
To continue the regimen with skin protection, take advantage of Spa San Luis’ Double Defense deal, which includes one of the following complimentary sunscreens with the purchase of the above antioxidants:
Sheer Physical UV Defense SPF 50 is a transparent, mattifying fluid that provides broad spectrum protection for all skin types (even very sensitive) with 100% physical filters, transparent titanium dioxide and zinc oxide (Z-Cote®*). Enhanced with artemia salina, a plankton extract, this lightweight sunscreen increases skin defenses and resistance to UV and heat stress. The weightless fluid spreads evenly and dries quickly, leaving no residue.
Physical Fusion UV Defense SPF 50 is a weightless, 100% physical sunscreen that provides water-resistant broad spectrum protection with transparent titanium dioxide and zinc oxide (Z-Cote®*). Enhanced with artemia salina, a plankton extract, this lightweight sunscreen increases skin defenses and resistance to UV and heat stress. Color-infused technology enhances natural skin tone and boosts daily radiance.
These products can also be purchased individually.
The SkinCeuticals line also offers products to correct existing damage, from wrinkles to discoloration, for a healthier, younger-looking complexion.
