Starting at an early age is key: keep newborns out of the sun. Once your newborn hits 6 months, you can apply sunscreen. Opt for chemical free sunscreen defense Super Sensitive Shield SPF30 - it shields with Titanium Dioxide and Zinc Oxide.
Apply before heading out: Chemical based sunscreens need time to activate with skin: applying when you're already under the sun equates to exposure time! Apply sunscreen liberally and generously 30 minutes before leaving the house.
And for you...
Don't skimp on cleansing... sunscreens are designed to adhere to skin and sit on the surface -meaning yucky build-up and the potential for breakouts. Get skin double clean: start with PreCleanse, our water-soluble plant oil-based cleanser that cuts through dirt, sunscreens, make-up -- even waterproof mascara! - and lifts it away so your prescribed Dermalogica Cleanser can get to cleaning what matters most - your skin!
Keep skin hydrated and moist - driving around with the roof down, vacationing in different climates and sitting in an air-conditioned environment sucks every drop of moisture out of your skin. Lock in hydration with Multi-Active Toner after cleansing and before moisturizing. Even pick up a travel-size to spritz on skin throughout the day!
Exfoliate! It buffs away dry, dulling skin cells to maximize benefits of hydrating products! But don't reach for high-foaming, highly fragranced shower products that can further dry skin. Choose Exfoliating Body Scrub, or dispense soap-free Conditioning Body Wash into The Ultimate Buffing Cloth for convenient all over scrubbing (especially for hard-to-reach places like the back!)
