Suncare with Benefits: 2 New Formulas That Target Discoloration
Now that we’re finally getting a real dose of spring in NYC, our sunscreen haul is getting bigger and bigger. Protection from UV rays is one thing, but two brands have taken their sun care formulas to the next level with unique formulas that also combat dark spots, uneven skin tone and hyperpigmentation. Suddenly, that chalky white SPF 25 in your arsenal is feeling a little lame, no? These new launches are the ultimate upgrade.
Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula Eventone Suncare
All of Palmer’s products highlight the extreme skincare benefits of cocoa butter. Now, the antioxidant-rich ingredient plays a big role in the brand’s new Eventone Suncare range. The five-piece collection features UVA and UVB broad-spectrum protection with 80-minute water resistance, as well as all the skin-perfecting benefits of cocoa butter, shea butter and coconut oil. It’s all in the Cocoaplex Technology, “a proprietary formulation technique that optimizes the skin-friendly properties of Palmer’s Cocoa Butter while enhancing the sunscreen emulsification.” All together, the products help fight dark spots, age spots and discoloration (all these things can make you look so much older than you already are.). The Eventone Suncare range is also ideal for dark skin, as it won’t leave any white residue behind. Everything is under $10 so you can supply enough SPF for your whole family without breaking the bank. Score!
Choose from a SPF 30 Moisturizing Sunscreen Lotion ($7), SPF 30 Moisturizing Sunscreen Spray ($9), SPF 15 Moisturizing Sunscreen Balm ($6), SPF 45 Moisturizing Sunscreen for Face ($7) and SPF 50 Sunscreen Stick ($4). Visit palmers.com for store availability.
Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare Dark Spot Sun Defense Broad Spectrum SPF 50 Sunscreen
If your biggest concern is maintaining a beautifully even complexion, add this dermatologist-approved sunscreen to your morning skincare regimen. It’s made with a melatonin defense complex (a blend of melatonin, vitamin E, and three forms of vitamin C) that supplies skin with tons of powerful antioxidants to avoid collagen breakdown and encourage its production, repair sun damage and prevent hyperpigmentation. And of course, physical sunscreens like titanium dioxide and zinc oxide fight those rays so you can go about your day. It’s also great under makeup!
