Classified Memo: Sun Defense Initiative
Commander: Marina del Rey aesthetician Tricia Trimble, the mastermind behind new nontoxic, mineral-based sunscreen line Suntegrity.
Objective: To protect citizens from UVA/UVB damage with a holistic, three-pronged skin care system.
Face Protection, SPF 30
A rich, nongreasy sunscreen that pulls double duty as a moisturizer/makeup primer. Packed with antioxidants like red algae and astaxanthin, it also helps improve skin elasticity and reduce the appearance of fine lines.
Body Protection, SPF 30
A vegan, paraben-free formula with a citrus scent that goes on white (so you don’t miss any spots) before absorbing into the skin.
Dietary Supplements with Vitamin D3
These daily capsules boost the body’s immune system and overall cellular health with ingredients like vitamins D3 and E, grape seed, and beta-carotene.
Collateral Damage: Acne and uneven skin tone, thanks to high levels of soothing zinc oxide.
Projected Outlook: Sunny.
