UV sun protection is no longer enough. If you want to prevent signs of aging or reduce the appearance of those tell-tale signs and prevent inflammation & skin cancer, well then, here’s the perfect multi-protection product just for you―DERMAX 360 Full Shield Fluid Cream.

What does DERMAX 360 Full Shield Fluid Cream do?

It helps protect your skin against: aging from UVA rays, sunburn from UVB rays, hyperpigmentation from visible light (VIS), inflammation from pollution (PM 2.5) and oxidative stress (IRA). Plus it is also enhanced with skin lightening boosters to fight uneven skin tone.

Sun care and skin care

Beyond a smattering of freckles and the odd burn each summer, it’s easy to ignore the effects of the sun on our skin. And with the very real possibility of all kinds of havoc all year long caused by the sun’s rays, daily application of a sun shield, whether you’re inside or outside, is very critical.

What role does this product play in anti-aging?

There is a distinct difference between UVA and UVB rays. As general rule of thumb, the A in UVA stands for “aging” and the B in UVB stands for “burning.” While window glass effectively blocks UVB rays, UVA rays, which can cause premature signs of aging, still get through. UVA rays are emitted at the same level all day long, while UVB rays are peaks at mid-day. This means that whether you're sitting at a desk by a window, are in a window seat on a plane, or are in a car, your skin is likely being exposed to damaging UV rays.

How can this product give me indoor protection?

We all know we should apply sunscreen when outdoors but what if you work inside all day? Is sun shield still necessary? The answer is yes. Indoor sources of potentially harmful UV exposure include fluorescent bulbs, halogen lamps, and even tablet and computer screens. These have the potential to harm your skin, causing skin damage and early signs of aging. Long-term daily exposure to these gadgets may even trigger skin conditions, such as melasma. Too much UV exposure also causes almost all types of skin cancer.

Can pollution harm my skin too?

We hate to be the bearers of bad news, but pollution is actually the second biggest cause of facial skin aging―second only to the sun. Prolonged or repetitive exposure to both indoor and outdoor pollution harms the skin in myriad ways: it can lead to a decrease in collagen levels and trigger inflammation. Those fine particulate matter called PM 2.5 can adhere to your skin, aside from travelling into your eyes, nose, throat and lungs.

Why is IR (infrared) protection important?

IRA rays penetrate skin more deeply than either UVA or UVB rays, passing through the epidermis and dermis into the subcutaneous layer. These rays are responsible for the warmth you feel on your skin when you’re out in the sun, but they also generate free radicals that cause collagen breakdown and accelerate skin aging. The heat produced by infrared rays can also lead to inflammation in the skin, which over time plays a role in premature signs of aging.

Finding the best sunscreen is essential. Burning ain’t cool, neither are weird tan lines. So here’s DERMAX 360 Full Shield Fluid Cream that gives you the complete protection from any serious damage, the best defense against sunburn, premature photo-aging and skin cancer.
