Sun Care Tips from Dr. Macrene
1. Avoid exposure. This is the most effective way to prevent your skin from sun damage and skin cancer. "It's not enough to just block UV. We all know that most sunscreens are not as effective as we want them to be," says Dr. Macrene.
2. After applying the High Performance Face Cream, Serum, and Tinted Moisturizer, apply your sunscreen right before you're out the door. Make sure to reapply sunscreen every two hours for consistent protection.
Chemical Sunscreen vs. Mineral Sunscreen
There are two main types of SPF formulas: chemical and mineral. Chemical sunscreens act as a sponge and absorb UV light, while mineral sunscreens act as a shield and deflect UV rays. Please see Dr. Macrene’s blog on the discovery of the carcinogen benzene in a host of sunscreens to look for ones that are safe to use.
Dr. Macrene considers mineral sunscreen as a safer option than chemical sunscreen. Mineral sunscreens such as those used in the MACRENE actives Tinted Moisturizer rely on zinc oxide, titanium dioxide and iron oxides. They work by physically deflecting UVA and UVB rays from getting to the surface of the skin. They are safer as they sit on the skin’s surface, rather than absorbing beneath it.

Tinted Moisturizer With Natural Reflectors and Antioxidants

Dr. Macrene addresses the after-effects of UV and sun damage by incorporating natural UV reflectors and potent antioxidants in the High Performance Tinted Moisturizer and Concealer. 
Effective Blockers: zinc, titanium, and iron oxides. All are non-chemical, safe and effective sunscreens.
Antioxidants to Fight Environmental Stressors: Superoxide dismutase, ginkgo extract, Vitamin C & E, and DNA repair enzymes.
Review by Celebrity Makeup Artist, Bryan Cantor: “This is the choice for those who prefer lighter, tinted moisturizer over classic foundations… containing ingredients that not only help tamp down redness, but also shrink pores, protect against sun and environmental damage, and minimize the look of fine lines and wrinkles.”
