Tell us about the Kiehl’s Der­ma­tol­o­gist So­lu­tions Ul­tra Light Daily De­fense SPF50 PA+++.

Let’s face it, sun­screens tend to be thicker or more opaque and, more of­ten than not, leave a film on the skin. Kiehl ’s was able to cre­ate a prod­uct with in­gre­di­ents that work to­gether with­out al­ter­ing its cos­metic feel by us­ing a light­weight, non­sticky for­mula that was able to com­bine UV fil­ters, sta­bilis­ers, and hy­drat­ing in­gre­di­ents.

What makes Kiehl’s Der­ma­tol­o­gist So­lu­tions Ul­tra Light Daily De­fense SPF50 PA+++ dif­fer­ent?

They use two key pho­to­stable sun fil­ters Mex­o­ryl SX and Mex­o­ryl XL com­bined with an­tiox­i­dant vi­ta­min E (To­co­pherol) and gyl­cerin. The com­bi­na­tion pro­vides a sta­ble, ef­fec­tive, and bal­anced broad­spec­trum sun­screen that fil­ters with­out de­grad­ing in the sun. Broad spec­trum cov­er­age blocks out UVB rays that are re­spon­si­ble for skin cancer and UVA rays that pen­e­trate the der­mis to de­crease col­la­gen and elas­tinin pro­duc­tion. pr

How do we make sun­screen a daily habit?

One of the things that I stress to pa­tients is that it is im­por­tant to find a sun­screen that you like. If you don’t like it, you won’t reach for it as much as you would your fa­vorite serum. It’s the daily use of sun­screen that re­ally sets you up for skin suc­cess.

Does sun­screen re­ally help?

A study on 900 Aus­tralians who were ob­served for five years was con­ducted and the re­sults pub­lished in the New York

Times. Half used sun­screen only when they were ex­posed to the sun while the other half used it daily re­gard­less of weather. The re­sults af­ter five years were as­ton­ish­ing. On a five-point scale, the people who used sun­screen ev­ery day re­gard­less of tem­per­a­ture hhad a one-point bet­ter dif­fer­ence in terms of their wr­wrin­kles than those who just used it oc­ca­sion­ally.

CAM­MIE CAN­NELLA “BB cream is op­tion num­ber two for those look­ing for some­thing that will pro­vide daily broad spec­trum sun pro­tec­tion.
