Armada Face Cover 45
SELECT IF: you have moderate melasma, spend most of your time indoors, and want a a medium-weight cream.
The most comprehensive protection, with some of the highest protection factors ever against the full spectrum of skin-harming light: indoor and outdoor UVA, UVB, Infrared and Visible Light.
Impressive power in a weightless, anti-oxidant cream that's friendly to all skin types.
When used everyday, indoors and out, also helps lighten melasma.
Protects against melasma, sun-induced skin cancer, photo-aging, and other photo-induced damage.
Shake well before use. Apply liberally on face and body skin, carefully avoiding membranous areas of eyes and nostrils. For best results, apply 30 to 60 minutes prior to sun exposure.
When outdoors, reapply at least every 1 to 2 hours, after swimming or sweating and after towel drying.
UV exposure from the sun increases the risk of skin cancer, premature skin aging and other skin damage. It is important to decrease UV exposure by limiting time in the sun, wearing protective clothing, and using a sunscreen.
UV rays from the sun are made of UVB + UVA. It is important to protect against both UVB + UVA rays to prevent sunburn and other skin damage.
As much as possible, practice sun avoidance particularly for children and the photosensitive, and especially between 10AM-2PM (10:00-14:00).

- Sun protection AND not only takes care of - but helps IMPROVE my skin Review by Elaine Abonal
I am a surfer in the Philippines and am always under the harsh tropical rays of the sun. I've been using the Armada sport but recently I've started using the Armada face cover. I LOVE IT! Usually surfers use zinc oxide (really thick stuff for the face) because sunscreen wears off easily, but this one really sticks to my face and not only protects it from sunburn, but I feel my skin being softer and smoother each time I use it!Posted on 9/18/12

- "Armada products are singularly the best sunscreen products in the market" Review by Lorraine, M.D.
By the way, I just need to tell you that Armada products are singularly the best sunscreen products in the market. No other sunblock is as odorless and greaseless, and I’ve tried many products. Thank you very much, VMV!Posted on 7/22/11
According to the American Academy of Dermatology, it's best to avoid the sun completely (especially for children and the photosensitive) but especially from 10AM to 4PM; use protective clothing like hats and longer sleeves; and when outdoors, reapply your sunscreen every hour or two, and after water immersion or toweling off.

Your skin is a dynamic layer which absorbs some of your sunscreen's ingredients, especially when the skin is really sweaty or wet. When this happens, less of the protective ingredients are on the surface of the skin where they need to be to do their job. Sunscreen is also removed by water immersion, toweling off and friction from clothing and physical activities. Best practice is to reapply every 1-2 hours. Read More
I don't get dark spots and never go out in the sun, but my doctor says I could still get skin cancer if I don't wear sunscreen all year round! Is this true? Read More
