Since moving to the city I have found a rapid change in my complexion. Although London is an amazing place to live the pollution is also extremely high and this has an ageing affect on skin. Recently I read that tiny particles and toxic gases emitted mainly by diesel vehicles attack the skin, causing the formation of pigment spots and wrinkles normally associated with old age. This is a scary thought…
So this brings me the importance of skin protection. I have found an incredible product by Murad, called Invisiblur which is not only a treatment but an SPF shield and a primer all in one! Being a Beauty Therapist myself and dealing with skin concerns daily, I have discovered that some clients tend to combine a mixture of serums and moisturisers with an occasional dab of SPF as an after thought. Most either don’t understand the point of an SPF (let’s face it ‘London we love you’ but you are not the sunniest place on the planet) or they don’t like the heavy oily texture that serums and SPF moisturises commonly contain.
Come rain or shine, our skin is exposed to harmful UV Rays and pollution and if it’s not protected we see the dreaded effects of ageing and congestion.
If there was one hero product I would choose (and I love products), Invisiblur would have to be it. It contains an SPF 30 but in the lightest, hydrating texture which I think is pretty impressive. It’s so silky and the light coverage makes it a great primer for those more natural (no make-up) days or even better it’s easy to mix with your foundation to give you that perfect flawless finish.
I honestly haven’t had one client that has given me bad feedback about this product and their skin looks more even, radiant and hydrated because of it. And as for myself. Well I can finally say I’m not letting London and its pollution get the better of my skin. I’d recommend anyone to try this no matter what skin type you have!
