SkinCeuticals has a range of sunscreens that are formulated to provide broad-spectrum UVA and UVB protection to the skin. This advanced line of sun protection features mineral filters and Mexoryl SX/XL, to help protect skin from the damaging UVA and UVB rays, proven to accelerate the signs of premature skin ageing. These sunscreens are also adapted for various skin types and lifestyles.
In this article we will be introducing the latest addition to the sun protection range, Advanced Brightening UV Defense Sunscreen SPF 50, which is a dual-action product created to help protect against UV-induced discolouration and to even out the skin’s complexion.
Introducing The Advanced Brightening UV Defense Sunscreen SPF 50
Our latest sun-protection product is a ultra-lightweight, residue-free formula, which combines broad-spectrum UV protection with a potent blend of discolouration-targeting ingredients for brighter, more even looking skin. This formula is enriched with 1% tranexamic acid and 2% niacinamide and broad spectrum UV filters to both help reduce the appearance of discolouration to help protect against future sun damage.
This product is suitable for normal, oily, dry and combination skin types, as well as ageing skin and hyperpigmented or uneven skin tones. As with all SkinCeuticals products, we rigorously tested this new formula to ensure the product met our standards. Advanced Brightening UV Defense Sunscreen showed statistically significant improvements in the appearance of hyperpigmentation, dark spot size, radiance and overall appearance.
Advanced Brightening UV Defense Sunscreen SPF 50 should be used before exposure to the sun, and then reapplied frequently and generously to maintain protection, especially after swimming, perspiring or towelling.

Tranexamic Acid is the newest ‘it’ acid to be used by skin experts. The new and upcoming ingredient is synthetic derivative of the amino acid lysine, known for its brightening effect on the skin and ability to improve the appearance of discolouration.

Niacinamide, also known as Vitamin B3 is essentially a water-soluble vitamin that’s has brightening benefits and hydration.

Along with brightness, it’s also known to help strengthen the skin’s
