I picked up this ultra interesting product from Sephora (USA) recently: PHOTODYNAMIC therapy from Dermadoctor.
As you know, one must always put on sunblock, especially in sunny Singapore. I have written previously about how damaging the sun rays can be. BUT! Now the sun rays can be my friend again, thanks to thi3 amazing lotion.
Because this is SUNLIGHT-ACTIVATED lotion with anti-aging properties and SPF30 UV protection. Think of it as zapping your skin with an invisible laser all day long, painlessly and passively of course.
Photo Dynamic Therapy is a special medical procedure performed at a doctor’s clinic – is targeted towards individuals with severe sun damaged skin manifested by actinic keratosis, texture, and tone changes including mottled pigmentation and skin laxity. The treatment benefits these conditions and improvement may also be seen in the areas of large pores and pitted acne scars. Active acne can improve dramatically as well.
Light therapy has long been available as a treatment known to build collagen and elastin. However, it has traditionally required either a series of time-consuming doctor visits or costly at-home devices. This product simulates the benefits of light therapy in a convenient day cream.
This day cream simulates the proven effects of light therapy. Its patent-pending, solar-powered technology transforms UV rays into visible red light waves, an energy source for skin that elicits anti-aging effects.
- Morinda Citrifolia Extract (Noni Fruit): Contains a special polyphenol that specifically captures the sun’s rays then converts and emits this energy as a highly focused visible red wavelength of light (648nm) equivalent to that of a red LED.
- Vitamin D Photodynamic Therapy: Contains the sole non animal Vitamin D source available; sun exposed shitake mushrooms, to help boost levels of this vitamin so critical to health and well-being.
- Benzylidene Dimethyoxydimethylindanone C20 H20 03 enhances protection by blocking the skin’s AhR receptor, thus shielding cellular DNA & providing cellular defense.
- Powerful Antioxidants Pomegranate, Ubiquinone, Vitamin E, Cucumber, Green & White Tea Extracts work to fight against free radical environmental damage to the skin.
The lotion goes on creamy and I like that it’s both a day moisturizer plus sunblock in one. This is one smart product that goes beyond being just a cream. The sun’s UV rays are transformed into red light energy that works with the skin to improve laxity, reduce pores and improve acne (or acne scars).
