I am feeling very privileged right now as this product is one of the first like it on the market and doesn’t hit stores until tomorrow – 12th July 2018 (for you UK babes anyways)! So this post is really just to hype you up as I already know that you will all love it like I do!
So first things first, here’s a little questionnaire for you…
- Do you have a mobile phone and use it regularly?
- Do you use a computer for school/work?
- Do you spend a lot of time under fluorescent lights?
- Do you watch a lot of TV?
- Do you live in a city or area with a lot of air pollution?
- Are you concerned with your skin’s health/signs of ageing ect.?
If you answered yes to at least 1 of those questions, then this is a product you will probably want to consider!
So what is the Complexion Rescue Defense all about? Well did you know that the light emitted from your phone/TV/laptop (known as Blue Light) can actually cause damage to your skin which can lead to colour changes (hyperpigmentation), inflammation and weakening of the surface of the skin which can cause premature ageing! Blue light is next to UV light on the light spectrum, so it is just as important that we protect our skin from Blue Light!
If this is news to you, like it was to me, then don’t worry, thankfully it can be avoided – if you never use your phone/laptop, never watch TV, don’t go into shops (due to the AC and fluorescent lights) and maybe go live in a hut in the middle of the Amazon Rainforest… While this may sound like a nice break from our crazy lives for a week or two, for the majority of us it is impossible, whether through work or our social lives these situations are unavoidable! If you’re in agreeance with me thus far then Bare Minerals Complexion Rescue Defence is what you need!
So Bare Minerals Complexion Rescue Defense actively works towards blocking these stressors to the skin and protect it from harmful Blue Light Rays! One of the key ingredients is Cacao Extract, this helps to protect your skin against the damaging effect of Blue Light, this product also contains sugar molecules which help to protect your skin against air pollution! It also has Camellia Flower Extract which protects your skins natural collagen levels!
The reason I love this product so much is because it is an easy step to protect yourself, I like to apply it after my moisturiser but before my makeup but it can also be applied solo as a moisturiser or over makeup if you prefer! This has a lovely luminous finish so really helps to make your skin look healthy, whether you have makeup on or not. It has a silky, non-greasy and lightweight formula similar to most silicone free primers, oh and best of all it has SPF30 so not only are you protected from Blue Light but also from UV light (BONUS!).
Overall, I really do recommend this product! It is so important to protect our skin from harmful pollutants and stressors, the true extent of blue light damage is still unknown and being one of the first generations to use phones/laptops at such an extent who knows what further damage ‘Screen Face’ can leave us with! It’s important to remember that prevention is better than cure!
