Even though all of us have different types of skin, we all share the same concern of caring for it the best we can.  Besides trying to maintain a healthy lifestyle and diet,  we turn to skin care products to protect and hydrate.

Some people may think that they are immune from sun damage. A while back, I was flying and sat across from a woman with such deeply tanned skin reminding me of baked ham against her gold lame blouse.  She was not exceptionally old, but by the texture of her crispy looking skin, I can only imagine what she looks like now. After that trip, I made it a mission never to skip wearing SPF every time I step outdoors because the condition of that woman's abused skin still haunts me.

This cutting-edge sunscreen is unique in formulation as well as its sheer, skin-matching tint that has a BB cream like texture.   The product has won the approval of the Skin Cancer Foundation for effectiveness for UVA/UVB photostable sun protection since it is a 12-hour time release antioxidant complex.

Oclipse Smart Tone Sunscreen uses fractioned melanin, which further enhances its power. This ingredient defends the skin against damaging high-energy (HEV) light that causes premature aging and redness.  The other active ingredients include avobenzone (3%), homosalate (10%), octisalate (5%), and octocrylrne (10%). It also has vitamin C to help skin from darkening.  

Like all sunscreens, you need to apply this in advance before sun exposure.  This one recommends using about a dime size amount at least 15 minutes of going outdoors. The gentle product has a creamy consistency and goes on as a pale milky white but soon adapts to your own individual skin color, which was interesting since it works for all skin tones.  It sinks into the skin fairly fast and has moisturizing softness instead of that greasy, sunscreen feel that often accompany this type of product.  

I do like how ZO Skin Health Oclipse Smart Tone Broad Spectrum Sunscreen works. However, it is rather pricey.  The tube sells for $70 for 1.5 fl. oz.  Do visit the company’s website and check it out.
