I consider it my “Driving cream” for my hands. It has no greasy feel and does not leave a white residue on my steering wheel. La Roche-Posay’s Anthelios SX SPF-15 is fairly new to the United States as it utilizes not just Avobenzone but Mexoryl, meaning it completely covers the entire UVA spectrum (UVA I & UVA II), unlike some Broad Spectrum sunscreens. This Sunscreen is moisturizing and perfect for everyday use. Intrinsic aging is the type of aging that is a natural part of life and is caused by genetics and hormones- meaning it is out of our control. Extrinsic aging, on the other hand is the aging we have caused ourselves by UV exposure, cigarette smoking, pollution and other environmental factors. About 80% of visible aging is caused by the extrinsic factor of sun damage. The good news is that we have control over this type of aging, so start slathering!
