Living in this warm and sunny country, do you apply any sun protection everyday? And how much / the amount of sun protection we should use per day? Sun exposure is the major caused of skin aging, so always remember to apply sun protection everyday. Even on the days you just stay indoor still have to apply sun protection, remember ya.

Jesie Hong, Group Education Manager for Dermalogica at EIG Bhd 

According to Jesie Hong, Group Education Manager for Dermalogica at EIG Bhd explained that “Even sitting in your car in direct sun, day after day and year after year, can result in hyper pigmentation and other signs of visible aging to the face, neck and hands”. The correct amount of sun protection / sunblock that we should use is about half a tea spoon on our face and neck.

To ensure the highest level of protection, Dermalogica uses two sophisticated technologies to boost product performance:
1) UV Smart Booster Technology
UV Smart Booster Technology allows essential antioxidants like vitamins C and E to be encapsulated into a microcapsule that activates only when needed.  Vitamins are released when exposed to UV rays, delivering enhanced photo-protection when it is most needed.
2) Oleosome Technology
Oleosome Technology in two of its reformulated products, Solar Defense Booster SPF50 and Oil Free Matte SPF30 to encourage greater ease of daily use. Oleosomes are naturally-occurring spheres of emollient oils and Vitamin E found in Safflower Seeds. Oleosome Technology can deliver much more UV protection without unwanted oiliness or chalkiness while improving customer satisfaction and lessening the chance of sensitivity.

Dermalogica has recently introduced new formulations and upgrades to its Daylight Defense System, a series of sun protection products for various skin types and needs, enhancing the system’s effectiveness, durability and wearability. This new and improved formulations provide more effective, long-lasting and comfortable UV protection for every skin type.

  1. I'm not much of a sun-worshipper myself, but am definitely a new fan of Dermalogica! Since turning 40, I've noticed a few faint lines around my eyes that really freak me out. Since I've never been one to spend a great deal of time on my skin, I figured I'd better start, so I bought the Dermalogica Age Smart Starter Kit. Let's just say that I am a changed woman!

    After reading this article, I had to go back and check out the products in the kit I bought for some sort of SPF. Luckily, the Dynamic Skin Recovery SPF 30 has me covered. Goodness only knows those darned wrinkles don't need any encouragement! lol

    1. hi Live, Laugh & Blog,

  2. Hi Kelly,

    I've been doing my research on the sun and premature skin aging. It's scary what can happen to a person who spends so much time outside with no sunscreen. Fortunately, I'm not all that outdoorsy, but even so, I've started wearing my SPF every day! Thanks!

  3. It is important to take good care of our skin. Thus make things happen the way you see it. Incredibly interesting.
