The past several days we have seen some delightful weather in Windsor-Essex County. The sunshine has beckoned many people outside for long walks, fun at the park, or chats with friends and neighbours on deck chairs six feet apart.
With all this fun in the sun, did you remember the most important ingredient in your daily skincare ritual? Did you apply sun protection?
According to Anna Lien-Lun Chien, M.D., in the article “Sunscreen and your Morning Routine,” “wearing sunscreen is one of the best – and easiest – ways to protect your skin’s appearance and health at any age. Used regularly, sunscreen helps prevent sunburn, skin cancer and premature aging.”
Jem sells two incredible products ideal for protecting your skin from the sun, no matter the season. Ava Isa, Sun-e-Serum Drops and CyperDERM Simply Zinc Ultra, both by the Sunscreen Company, are excellent additions to your morning routine.
“We make the best sunscreens in the world. All mineral sunscreens. UVA protective sunscreens. Beautiful for the face sunscreens. Invisible on all skin tones sunscreens. Reef-safe sunscreens. Planet-friendly sunscreens. Sunscreen every day? Yes. But let’s make sure it is the right one. Sunscreen for the good of the people and their planet.” – The Sunscreen Company
Ava Isa, Sun-e-Serum Drops SPF 35 ($50)
“Love and Protection in Every Bottle”
Ava Isa began after Sara Dudley, co-founder of The Sunscreen Company, had her daughter Ava Isabella. She wanted to make a product that would make her daughter’s life safer and would be something she would be proud to use. Ava Isa’s ultra-matte sunscreens are quick-drying, light-weight, invisible, and use a high concentration of zinc oxide for superior protection, along with other organic and natural ingredients.
Sun-e-Serum Drops SPF 35 features UVA/UVB protection and is made with 25% zinc oxide and the anti-oxidant Micah, creating transparent sun protection. This product will make your skin feel good as it blends and absorbs immediately. Since it is also vegan, cruelty-free, and reef-safe, you can be confident you are making a choice that is good for the environment, as well.
CyberDERM Simply Zinc Ultra SPF 50 ($52)
“Created with Intention, and Without Compromise”
If you prefer a lotion rather than a serum, Simply Zinc Ultra is a great choice. It also includes 25% zinc oxide and boasts a completely new light-weight feel, drying on the skin almost immediately after application. Suitable for all skin tones, this sun protection lotion feels so good, you won’t want to miss a day wearing it. Importantly, this is a product that can benefit everyone who wears it, including those with a history of skin cancer, photo-aging, hyperpigmentation, and more.
CyberDERM was founded when a patient asked high-risk OB/GYN and endocrinologist Dr. Denis Dudley whether a certain sunscreen was safe for her to use during pregnancy. He brought this question to his wife, Dr. Sharyn Laughlin, a dermatologist. Together, the two physicians began to explore the formulations of skincare in a whole new way and partner with their chemist, Tom Heinar, to create products they could use within their practice. In 2008, the above-mentioned Sara Dudley joined their team and the results of their hard work were bottled and introduced to a wider audience.
Finally, if you’re planning on being outside at all this spring season, it’s imperative to protect your skin. What better way to do so than to start incorporating Ava Isa’s Sun-e-Serum Drops or CyberDERM’s Simply Zinc Ultra into your daily skincare routine? They are created to be “safe, aesthetically elegant and most importantly effective” so you can’t go wrong.
Both products can be purchased online or in store. Pick up a bottle today and begin enjoying each day with the confidence you’re caring for your skin the same way it protects you.
