Although I am only counting days till the first signs of autumn would honor Los Angeles with their presence, I bet most of you have already switched into warmer clothing and autumn-ish atmosphere that probably makes much more sense to October (not 80 degrees plus). It constantly gets me thinking about all the sun exposure we get (intentionally and not) and how it all affect our skin in a very ugly, stressful and tiring way. Summer is great for making memories, but let’s just keep them away from our faces, shall we?
I am always glad when Murad Skincare knocks on my door (remember this first introduction into their line?) and introduces me to their always appropriate and always on point skin treats. Let’s take a closer look at what this dermatologist developed line got in store for us and our sun-tired skin.
Let me just quickly remind you that Murad has developed their scientifically proven lines based on skin concerns. I’ve been talking about their Pore Reform Line and Acne line in this post, the same post where I shared a tip that got all my friends and especially my mom hooked on their new skin perfecting primer – Invisiblur*. Today we’re talking about the line called Environmental shield* that consists of several products all aiming to brighten the skin, essentially hydrate, even out the skin tone and bring back the radiance to your skin being constantly exposed to environmental stress (where sun is one of the most harmful points, I am sure you’re aware of that).
– Step number one – treat and lift away sun damage.
Murad Intensive-C Radiance peel* (actually, it is a mask!) works extremely well on gently peeling and renewing the skin with it’s creamy formula. Yup, no grains or micro-beads. Your skin has been compromised enough, so what is actually working inside this formula on hydrating, restoring radiance and evening out the skin tone is a complex of Vitamin C, Glycolic Acid and Indian Fig Extract. I am definitely going to proceed with this product once a week to see some changes in the texture of my skin. Also, I am pretty sure I will have to get one (of each) for my mom, she would love it!
– Step number two – repair and wipe away sun spots.
I have to admit I don’t have any visible sun pigmentation (freckles don’t count, they are my sort of ‘business card’ if you know what I mean). However, this Rapid Age Spot & Pigment Lightening Serum* is proven (due to Murad studies) to lighten pigmentation very effectively with the help of formula that includes Hydraquinone, Hexapeptide-2 and Glycolic acid. Again, goes to my mom!
– Step number three – Hydrate, protect and brighten overnight.
Now this Essential-C Night Moisture* is talking to me! I love overnight products, they always get me excited to wake up early in the morning and face the changes in my mirror reflection while my morning ritual. And I do like when I can actually notice some changes. Well, it can be minor for someone else, but you (and me) we do notice every single inch of change on our skin. This overnight buddy is restoring sun damage with Vitamin C, Algae and Grape Seed extracts, overnight, and bringing back elasticity and radiance to the skin. With grace and comforting, lightweight texture.
– Step 4 – always, ALWAYS drink water.
