The layer of either moisturizer or make up (foundation, powder or else) is so thin that the amount of SPF on the skin is insignificant. So when you think you're protected, you're actually not.
3 REASONS WHY SPF SKINCARE OR MAKE UP IS POINTLESS WHEN IT COMES TO DAILY PASSIVE EXPOSURE TO SUNLIGHT
1. THERE'S NOT ENOUGH SPF THAT GOES ON YOUR SKIN
2. SPF FADES AWAY WITHIN 1-2 HOURS
By the time you get to the office in the morning, whatever amount of SPF you had on the skin is gone (also valid for regular sunscreen by the way). And it's not at 9 or 10am that you need it the most anyway.
3. MOST OF US NEVER REPLENISH THROUGH THE DAY
The large majority of people don’t replenish throughout the day, starting with those who wear make up. The SPF sprays or mists that are around ? Back to #1!
Incidental Sun Smart Serum: naturally stimulates the SPF in your own skin.
Our innovative serum features new generation melanin activating peptides that mimic the action of sunlight and "wake up" your melanin. Melanin is the natural pigment that protects the skin against UV radiation and risks of burning, while allowing vitamin D synthesis.
This serum won't change your skin tone or create hyper-pigmentation: the peptides strengthen the efficacy of your melanin, allowing your own sun defenses to activate whenever your skin is exposed to UV rays through a regular day.
A 360 skincare solution against photo-aging, our serum also contains a proprietary blend of anti-oxidants, marine and plant derived ingredients with anti-aging benefits, primarily targeting UVA, blue light and IR related damages. UVA, blue light and IR have damaging effects year-round, not only during the sunny season.
Clean formula, no harmful ingredients. French conception, US manufacturing.
"I’ve been using this serum for several weeks and I really like it. It doesn’t feel heavy on the face and didn’t cause me to breakout as I have acne prone skin... even in my 40’s. It also did not cause irritation on my children’s sensitive skin nor did it look “ghostly” on the skin as many spf’s."
"I have been using this serum for over a month and I absolutely love it. I have a combination skin, yet very sensitive so the composition is really important to me. I mix it with my day cream and it feels great on my skin. No greasy sensation, the smell is natural and fresh and it is such a different feeling than applying sunscreen."
"I had been using the serum for 1 week when I went to cheer friends running the NYC marathon. My face was in the direct sun for almost 2h which for a fair skin like mine meant... my skin would be turning red. But it didn't, and I could totally see a glow ! The dropper tip makes it easy to mix with my moisturizer, and I love the texture."
I have bought a number of serums over the years (and spent a good amount of money on them) and find skinergies to be one of the better options out there. It smells really nice and feels great once I put it on my skin. I have noticed after two weeks of using a brighter tone to my skin, which makes me look more refreshed. I will be buying again for sure.
