News just in…your phone is ageing your skin! Now we know we’re not going to break the habit of checking our phones (on average every 7 minutes), so we need something to help combat the negative effects of what it’s doing to our skin. And we’ve found it, with the new bareMinerals Complexion Rescue Defense.
This three-in-one moisturiser helps protect against blue light (the strong light from screens on smartphones, computers and other digital devices, as well as from fluorescent and LED lighting), pollution and UV rays. It’s the perfect step in your skincare regime.
We caught up with Anna from their Education Team who gave us more information on this first of its kind mineral based moisturiser:
As much as we love the sun, we know it’s damaging to our skin. SPF has grown in importance over the last two decades to protect from the harmful UV rays.
However recently we asked “what do you want from your skincare?” and 78% of women questioned cited protection from pollution as being high on their list of priorities. There’s been a lot of research that now tells us exposure to pollution can cause accelerated skin ageing and damage such as wrinkles, dark spots and blemishes.
But in addition to the daily pollution and sun damage that we are faced with, phones, tablets and computers are emitting blue light, which induces more photoageing than UVB rays, and is proven to cause free radical damage resulting in premature skin ageing.
Being innovators in skincare and beauty has meant bareMinerals has found a solution. Their new Complexion Rescue Defense is packed full of mineral, clean and vegan ingredients that help protect you from the three aggressors we’re all faced with every single day.
What’s inside the bareMinerals Complexion Rescue Defense?
Using sustainably sourced cacao to neutralize the damage from blue light, sugar molecules to block pollution particles and chemical-free zinc and titanium dioxide to defend against UVA/UVB, it has your skin covered. Plus with natural pearl extract, it gives you a lit-from-within glow meaning you can wear it alone and look radiant and moisturised all day, under makeup as a step in your routine, and even over makeup for a refresh throughout the day.
We’ve introduced it to our skincare regime and love it! Apply after cleansing, buff on your favorite foundation and you’re good to go. For the ultimate power house duo, we love to use Complexion Rescue Defense under our favourite tinted moisturiser, Complexion Rescue. Together, they provide protection and give you luminous, healthy looking skin every day.
I am a big believer in the idea that beautiful Make Up begins with a superb skincare regime. I like to enhance my natural beauty rather than cover up and I am always on the lookout for great products which really work. When I am not writing about all things beauty, I like to do Yoga and I make an amazing brownie. It is all about balance!
