Dr. Perry's DayThyme®

DayThyme® is an SPF 20 broad spectrum sunscreen that contains zinc oxide and other ingredients that improve the barrier function of the skin. Zinc oxide is the sole sunscreen ingredient in DayThyme, a lesser whitening agent than titanium dioxide. Zinc oxide blocks both UVA and UVB.

You saw me discussing sunscreens on a national television program. This product is the one I recommend. Please note that this product is fragrance free - to avoid allergies. If you want a product that smells like a flower, this is not for you. But if you want a product that is an exceptional sunscreen that strengthens the skin, this is it...

Dr. Perry's DayThyme® is your morning skin protector, although you can use it anytime during the day. I designed it to be used as a stand-alone product for women and men, or as a foundation under makeup.

Most importantly, DayThyme is an SPF 20 broad-spectrum sunscreen. During the day, your skin is assaulted by dangerous ultraviolet light and so I included zinc oxide, a broad-spectrum sunscreen that protects you from both ultraviolet A and B light, in DayThyme. My zinc oxide does not have nanoparticles and importantly, it is not absorbed into your body. I didn’t use those cheaper, but harmful, chemical sunscreens that can be absorbed into your body. Zinc oxide stays on the surface of the skin, where it belongs, and simply blocks UV radiation. There are no endocrine disruptors in my DayThyme, and so it is safe for all people.

But DayThyme goes much further than a typical sunscreen. It contains vitamins B3 (niacinamide) and B5 (panthenol), two vitamins that strengthen the barrier function of the skin, improving its resistance to all sorts of toxins. They also decrease the irritation that vitamin A creams can cause. DayThyme includes safflower, olive, and white thyme oils for moisturization and for a feel and smell.

Use DayThyme in the morning after washing. Make sure it thoroughly dries before applying your makeup. When it is not "tacky" to the touch (about 2 minutes), apply your makeup, using DayThyme as your foundation.

Love All these Products Review by Robbyn
I've been using several of Dr. Perry's products for about 5 years and I love them all! Especially Day Thyme because of the natural sunscreen. The foundation I use most often does not contain sunscreen so for me, this is a must. I can tell a huge difference in the appearance of my skin and I can't say enough about how impressed I am with this product. (Posted on 5/22/19)
Love this simple and highly effective skincare regimen Review by Sandra
I stumbled onto Dr. Perry’s products while suffering from rosacea and serious acne in my early 50s. These products accomplished what a few dermatologists, antibiotics, and topical medications could not. I fully attribute the remarkable clearing of my very fair skin to the great ingredients and likely the Vit A in the products. This regimen, all four products, has made a tremendous difference in my appearance and self confidence. Day Thyme is the only moisturizer with sunscreen that I have used that does not cause any acne problems. I expect to be a lifetime user of Dr. Perry’s products. (Posted on 5/22/19)
Perfect daily moisturizer/sunblock Review by Kate
I've used DayThyme for 10 years now. I turned 40 in the last few months. I am a fair-skinned person who abused the sun in my younger days. Incredibly enough, I think the use of DayThyme and NightThyme have corrected some of the damage and prevented further damage. No one guesses that I am 40. When I met my husband, I was 34 and he was 30. He assumed I was around 26! Yahoo for me! (Posted on 5/19/19)

In the morning, wash face with mild soap such as Dr. Perry’s CleanThyme®. Pump twice and coat your entire face and neck and massage into skin, avoiding your eyes. Do not use more than 2 pumps because excess DayThyme can clump under your makeup. Your skin should be dry before applying makeup - full drying of DayThyme takes about 2 minutes.  If you find that clumping occurs, it is possible that your makeup is reacting to the DayThyme; under these circumstances you may need to switch brands of makeup...
