"Sun Up To City Lights"
Hyaluronic Acid delivers ultimate hydration and youthful "plumping" of skin cells. The more water that the skin retains, the less oil it will produce. Therefore, you'll have minimized oily-shine and a perfectly balanced climate for superb make-up wear.
The best of occlusive ingredients - found in the finest of independent skin/make-up
primers - provide a "blur" effect to the skin's surface. Pores, fine lines and imperfections become less apparent. Expect optimum protection, wear and appearance without additional steps, products to pack or expense. And yes, gentlemen, you too will benefit from younger, more refined looking skin. This product dries perfectly clear and is absolutely undetectable.
ABOUT THE ACTIVE SUNSCREEN INGREDIENTS:
Both are FDA Classified Category 1 Skin Protectants.
OCTINOXATE (7.5%) is the most widely used UVB (sun burning ray) blocking agent in the skin care industry. Though it does not filter UVA (skin aging rays), it has a "free-radical protection factor" that prevents UV light induced DNA alterations and boosts the product's SPF. A highly efficient ultraviolet shield, Octinoxate, provides protection from contributors to skin cancer, aging and photo damage, including melasma and hyperpigmentation.
ZINC OXIDE (9.0%) is a micronized oxide that provides physical sunscreen protection. It is the broadest spectrum UVA and UVB reflector that is approved for use as a sunscreen by the FDA, and is completely photostable. Zinc Oxide sits on the surface of the skin and is not absorbed. Therefore, it is nonirritating and nonallergenic. Its fine particles also have deodorizing and antibacterial properties making it an ideal choice for those with sensitive and acne prone skin.
INGREDIENTS THAT MAKE THIS SUNSCREEN SO MUCH MORE:
I will describe the beneficial characteristics of the OCCLUSIVE ingredients cumulatively.
(All are listed below). Most are silicone based and create a light, almost powdery finish. They provide the skin with a fresh, clean feeling of velvety softness, and also address inflammation. They are the ingredients primarily responsible for the "primer" benefits of this product.
HYALURONIC ACID is a glycosaminoglycan that consists of small molecules allowing it to reach deep down into the dermis. By holding up to 1,000 times its own weight in water, it provides the hydrating, nutrient-transporting framework necessary for supporting the structure of the skin. This hydration increases the skin's volume and density as it temporarily stabilizes the inter-cellular skin matrix - the glue that holds your face together.
POLYISOBUTENE works as an emollient moisturizer and prevents water loss.
PRO-VITAMIN B and VITAMIN E provide cell support as antioxidants and skin strengthening conditioners.
LACTIC ACID is an Alpha Hydroxy Acid derived from milk. By accelerating the sloughing process of the skin and limiting bacterial growth, absorption and longevity of beneficial ingredients are greatly increased. Contributors to acne and sensitivity are lessened.
SURFACTANT ingredients and preservatives contained in this product are now popular replacements for those that are more controversial - such as Paraben. (All are listed below).

My clients are active, successful people - constantly on the move - as am I. That having been said, imagine applying your skin care products, including a significant sunscreen, and make-up (if applicable) in the morning, spending an active day, and only having to possibly "blot" your face to remove any excess shine. Then, just a quick make-up (mineral powder) refresh and in minutes you're back in public for a late night event. The most amazing part of this scenario is that your look is as fresh as if you washed your face and started all over again, using a non-sunscreen moisturizer/primer and brand new make-up, to prepare for your night out. With AM application of "Sun Up To City Lights" Protectant Primer™, this has been my personal experience as well as that of my "customer friends" - who tell me what they really think - before I ever release a product to the public. I've even received a response of "For the first time while wearing a sunscreen, my jewelry doesn't stick to my neck and I don't feel like I'm sweating underneath it !"
So quick, simple, safe, comfortable, clean, product quantity minimizing, value improved . . . and visually enhancing! You've got to love this product!

|* Please note: If a product is being used specifically for its sun protection benefits, to endure consistent sun exposure, for an extended period of time, without additional make-up protection, it is always recommended that it be re-applied every 2 hours. Also, there are no sunscreen products that are truly waterproof, regardless of their claims.|
