UV Porcelain+, $159 for a box of 30 capsules (750mg per capsule), Science on Skin

Exposure to UV rays is one of the main causes of those dark spots and melanin patches that can ruin your complexion. That is why ensuring that your skin is well protected from the sun should always be a priority, no matter what skin type you have.

Using topical sunscreen can be helpful, but the problem is most people do not apply enough, and the protection can sometimes be patchy since some sunscreens don’t spread well for an even coverage. Its effectiveness also wears off within a few hours, so you will have to keep diligently reapplying throughout the day to ensure the best protection against UV damage.

For maximum coverage on top of your topical sunscreen application, protect your skin from the inside with an oral skincare supplement like UV Porcelain+ by Science on Skin. Its US FDA-certified formula not only offers broad spectrum UVA and UVB protection, but also works to brighten your complexion. 

Balancing your complexion

To achieve a more balanced skin tone, this all-in-one oral supplement controls pigmentation by inhibiting melanin synthesis while reducing existing melanin that is already present in the cells, including acne, scars and freckles.

Lowering melanin production is made possible, thanks to glutathione—a tripeptide which contains L-cysteine, L-glutamic acid and L-glycine—which inhibits tyrosinase and changes the metabolic pathway of melanin, resulting in lighter-pigmented melanin.

Its Alpha-Porcelain formulation works on brightening your skin while vitamin C protects against sun damage and enhances the effects of ingredients that promote skin brightening. 

To top it off, collagen peptide helps to boost skin elasticity and plump up your cells. As collagen and elastin is stimulated, UV Porcelain+ can help to tackle the obvious signs of skin ageing by significantly reducing the depth of those wrinkles and the appearance of fine lines.

Stave off sun damage

Some of us have skin that is more sensitive to the sun. For extra protection against oxidative damage caused by sun exposure on top of topical sunscreen, UV Porcelain+ contains polypodium leucotomos extract which is a preventive agent for skin photo-ageing and photo-induced skin cancers. By blocking UV rays, it not only reduces UV-induced inflammation but also wards off sunburn cell formation.

To effectively deliver the formula, the active ingredients are encapsulated in modified-release capsules to allow for transport through the stomach without dissolution, before being absorbed by the body. The proprietary ingredient, Alpha-Porcelain serves as a catalyst to synergise ingredients for maximum potency.

With UV Porcelain+, take care of your complexion from the inside out and keep your skin protected from the sun, so you can bask in a luminous and radiant complexion.
