SunSavvy Antioxidant Backup for Your Sun Protection Kit
Antioxidants play a huge role in protecting your skin from free radicals that damage precious, nucleic acids (DNA) and skin structures (lipid cell membranes, to name a few). Your skin makes some, but they are not sufficient to stand up to summer sun, which is why skin gets sun-damaged.
You can augment your skin’s antioxidant reserve with the right, concentrated, stable, and professional products – and it’s worth it. Every free-radical neutralized is damage averted.
I’ve watched the scientific studies over the years, and in my observation, the best proven antioxidants to help your skin fight sun-damaging UV are Green Tea EGCG polyphenols and Vitamin C.
Add them to your broad-spectrum mineral sunscreen, and be ready to fully enjoy the beauty of life outdoors.
I’ve combined my Green Tea Antioxidant Cream and Professional Vitamin C Serum with my two, popular, and invisible mineral-zinc-oxide, broad-spectrum sunscreens.
Green Tea Antioxidant Cream has the right antioxidants in high concentration. This includes pharmaceutical-grade EGCG polyphenols, the equivalent of 500 cups worth in 1 oz. of cream.
I’ve seen it work on the full-range of complexion types in my practice including diminishing redness and reducing the expected number of precancerous and cancerous skin cancers (in people who developed many before starting to use the cream). I wear this cream every day and never travel without it.
Vitamin C Anti-Wrinkle Professional Treatment Serum is made with the right vitamin C at the right pH in the right airtight container.
Yes, you see tons of products touting vitamin C on the label. Sadly, the vitamin C in the lovely cream or serum is usually not still active because formulating, active vitamin C requires conditions most products don’t meet. Mine does.
Layer the Vitamin C over the Green Tea and under your Sheer Strength Pure Physical mineral, broad-spectrum sunscreens - you’ve got the best that science can offer to help your skin stand up to UV-radiation!
My SunSavvy Antioxidant Bundle includes the popular Sheer Strength Pure Physical Invisible Sunscreen, SPF 50™ Broad Spectrum Protection hypoallergenic, non-irritating and ultra-light. A great choice for all anti-aging skin-care routines.
I’ve also included my Sheer Strength Spray Sunscreen that’s ideal for neck, ears, chest, part line of your scalp, and even the face. Spray it in your hands, and spread this lightweight sunscreen on all exposed areas of skin. It dries quickly, and you won’t even know you are wearing sunscreen… the feel is that light.
In addition, wear a hat to create shade when you are out in the sun for sustained periods of time.
Know you are using the best sun care products science has to offer.
Backed by various studies, green tea antioxidants and vitamin C are the ideal combination to broad-spectrum sun protection for mitigating skin damage from UV-induced free radicals.
This is a state-of-the-art antioxidant skin care powerhouse and my absolute favorite, facial product. If you pick just one antioxidant for your skin care, the best is green tea - it helps calm skin redness and fights sun damage.
I think this is the best vitamin C skin care product made! Dermatologists and skin care experts agree that vitamin C is one of the most important products in a serious, anti-wrinkle treatment for sun-damaged skin.
Pure mineral zinc-oxide protection that’s perfect for even the most sensitive skin. It’s hypoallergenic, non-irritating and has an ultra-light feel so we think this facial sunscreen will be your new favorite!
At last, an ultra-light sunscreen spray that’s pure mineral protection with micro (not nano) zinc oxide for the best, anti-aging broad spectrum protection.
Complete skin care involves the 4 steps of Cleanse, Correct, Hydrate and Protect. Use the products to create complete skin care that gets results!
|Cleanse: Use your favorite facial cleanser as you normally do.|

Apply the amount dispensed in 1/2 to 1 full pump to the entire face (including near the lower eyelids).
Layer Vitamin C Anti-Wrinkle Professional Treatment Serum. Apply immediately after the Green Tea Cream (wait a minute or so until the Green Tea is dry to the touch).
The amount dispensed in 1/2 to 1 full pump is sufficient for the entire face, including near the eyelid area. Keep the cream out of the eyes and folds of your eyelids. Let the Vitamin C dry a minute or so before continuing.
If your complexion benefits from use of daily moisturizer, apply a moisturizer such as Daily Face Cream where you need it after the Vitamin C has dried.
Protect: Apply Sheer Strength Pure Physical Invisible SPF 50+ Sunscreen to your face and Sheer Strength Pure Physical Spray SPF 50+ to your neck, ears, exposed chest and scalp skin.
If you use makeup, it goes on top!
|Cleanse: Wash your face with your favorite gentle cleanser.|
|Correct: Apply Green Tea Antioxidant Skin Therapy.|
Hydrate: Apply your favorite night cream or the Daily Face Cream and you’re set.
Tips for Success
Vitamin C Anti-Wrinkle Professional Treatment Serum is powerful because it has an acidic pH.
This means that it can cause a little stinging. Discontinue use and allow your skin to rest for a few days if your skin is chapped, injured or extremely sensitive.
Also, the simultaneous use of free copper-containing facial products may inactivate the active ingredients in this regimen and should be avoided. My Instantly Luminous Serum contains bound copper, not free copper and combines well with all the products in this powerful skin care routine.
You can also use these products as directed by your physician. Remember, this is an example of how I craft a skin care routine in my practice while actively supervising my patients.
Sunscreen Application Tips:
Apply zinc oxide sunscreen last in your Complete Skin Care Routine. It should go on after all other skin care products. But, if you wear make-up, add it before you apply any make-up.
This is because the zinc oxide particles sit on top of the skin where they reflect light. All skin care products that work by penetrating into the skin must be applied first.
