SkinMedica Daily Physical Defense Sunscreen SPF 30+
Availability: selected medical spas
An ultra-sheer, all-mineral sunscreen for all skin types that offers broad-spectrum UVA/UVB protection. This PABA-free and fragrance free sunscreen is hypoallergenic and non-comedogenic. The oil-free formulation is light enough to be applied under make-up and helps protect against free-radical damage.
What we say:
‘If there is one thing I know, it is sunscreen. I live in the Northern Cape particularly in Vioolsdrift, which is known for its 48-degree Celsius weather in summer. Oh and I am also a river guide. So me and a few friends took SkinMedica Daily Physical defense Sunscreen SPF 30+ on a two-day river trip.
‘Firstly it really is fragrance free, like all good sunscreens should be. You do not want anything you apply to your face to smell too strong, especially if you’re going to be in the sun. Secondly it is not oily at all, it goes onto your skin like a good night cream – no oil or thick zinc residue. Thirdly we tested it on literally every skin color in South Africa and not one single person got even slightly burned. (In fact my friend Modise became whiter.) I for one only applied it once in the morning, had a few unexpected swims, and still was not burned in the evenings. I can highly recommend SkinMedica Daily Physical Defense Sunscreen SPF 30+, it truly is a superior product.’
