Why do I need to use a sunscreen?

Sunscreen is the best anti-aging product that exists, as it has the ability to prevent and protect against major signs of premature ageing. UV exposure is one of the most significant ageing factors that is under your control. The effects of the sun are powerful and range from sunburn to collagen breakdown, and scarily can even lead to skin cancer. Although you may only feel that it is important to use sunscreen when you’re on holiday, it's also crucial to include this step in your daily skincare routine. Whether you’re in the office, picking up the kids from school or going for your daily walk, by integrating a broad-spectrum sunscreen daily into your routine, you can enjoy youthful-looking skin for many more years to come.

What causes sunburn and sun damage?

The UV light that reaches your skin daily consists of both UVA and UVB rays. UVB light is strongest during the summer and is the primary cause of sunburn. UVA light is consistent all year round, penetrates deeply, and causes damage without sunburn. Integrating a high-SPF sunscreen that advertises broad-spectrum protection, UVA protection, or a PA+ rating will safeguard your skin with daily use.

What’s the difference between a Physical and Chemical sunscreen?

You’re not the only one that’s confused when it comes to physical and chemical sunscreens. Let us break it down for you. A physical sunscreen, as its name suggests, creates a physical barrier between the sun and your vulnerable skin. Physical sunscreen formulas remain on the surface of your skin and do not absorb. However, a chemical sunscreen does the exact opposite and penetrates skin and is absorbed by the deeper layers of your skin. Chemical sunscreens soak up the damaging rays, like a sponge, to prevent them doing any damage.

Not as greasy as most of the sunscreens do

I bought this sunscreen after seeing other positive reviews..just thought to give it a try ..packaging is compact and travel friendly. Also the sunscreen is not greasy like most of the expensive sunscreens do ..I tried many for face sunscreen ,but this the first suncreen which felt like a moisturiser and no white cast..great thing about this product is reasonable price.even hubby liked it ..and we referred it to my Friends as well .

A fantastic daily protective moisturiser!

I love this product - I had been using my daily moisturiser plus a physical mineral sunscreen and finding it quite thick and heavy, especially on warmer days. Can't go past wearing SPF every day and have been so pleased since using ASAP daily defence! Great SPF rating, consistency not too thick, finish is nice; doesn't leave you looking pale or white (like some physical sunscreens) and allows makeup over the top really easily.
Would definitely recommend this product!

Never using anything else

I've been using Total Eye Care for more years than I can remember - definitely more than 15 years. I've tried other eye products along the way and always come back to this! A little goes a long way, it has sun protection, absorbs easily into the skin. Other products have irritated my skin and eyes, but Total Eye Care has never given me any issues at all in that regards. I'm a few years older than 40, and people are always shocked that I'm not still in my 30s. I attribute this to Total Eye Care in the morning, and Multivitamin Power Firm in the evenings.

Fave daily sunscreen.

I use this product every day mixed in with either my Skinstitut Ultra Dry or Normal Skin moisturisers.

It does take a while to absorb into the skin - just keep rubbing it in until it's completely clear. This is normal for physical sunscreens.

I'll use this product under my makeup and it doesn't affect it at all. Feels very hydrating and comfortable on the skin, but never greasy. Never breaks me out either. Love this stuff.
