Dr. Dennis Gross SkincareDark Spot Sun Defense Broad Spectrum SPF 50
An antiaging sunscreen cream with a state-of-the-art antioxidant complex to help prevent damage from UVA/UVB rays, protect against photo-aging, and even skin’s texture and tone.
What it is formulated to do:
This hydrating, antiaging sunscreen reduces the appearance of dark spots, uneven skin tone, and aging around the face and delicate eye area as it greatly decreases the risk of skin cancer. Formulated with a breakthrough complex featuring melatonin as well as three forms of vitamin C and vitamin E, this essential final step in your daily skin care routine is your first line of defense against photo-aging and sun damage. The broad-spectrum, high-protection, SPF 50 formula is safe and effective, does not contain chemical filters, and is the highest FDA-allowed level of sun protection available. Skin-nourishing ceramides, hyaluronic acid, and evening primrose oil hydrate and improve skin elasticity.
