This launched recently from our favourite clean makeup brand Bareminerals. The Complexion Rescue Defense is a clever multi-protective cream that not only protects with from sun damage with SPF30, BUT it also protects against the little-talked about ‘Blue Light’ which comes from our computer screens and mobile phones.
Long-term exposure to blue light can lead to premature ageing and skin damage, and it’s something that we need to be more aware about, particularly in this day and age, with hand-held technology and phone use/ browsing at an all-time high.
This mineral based veil also contains sugar molecules which helps block free radicals and damage from pollution. Cacao extract helps block the damage from blue light AKA your ‘indoor protection’. Mineral SPF30 protects against sun damage. This is a perfect skin prep / primer to wear under your makeup as a first step to ensure your skin is smartly protected all day. It also contains natural pearl that gives instant luminosity, glow and that lit-from-within finish. Works on all skin tones.
Personally for me, I would use this alongside my existing skincare regime rather than just as my moisturiser, as I don’t find it *quite* hydrating enough and I have an oily-combination skin. So use it instead of your primer. You can also use this over the top of makeup to refresh and re-hydrate the skin if you wish ; a lot of makeup artists use it like this and if you want to give this method a try, make sure you simply warm it in between your fingers and tap it into the skin instead of rubbing it on (which can take your makeup off!).
This is a perfect pairing to the Bareminerals Complexion Rescue Tinted gel which I am a HUGE girl-fan of. I have been using the combination of the 2 for the last few weeks as my lightweight daily base and my skin looks glorious, the perfect no-makeup-makeup finish AND it stays really fresh looking all day.
