Beat the Heat, Fight Sunburns and Moisturize!

Summer temps are pushing 100+ and although we all want to enjoy the summer heat and spend time outdoors, our makeup runs, we’re hot and desperately trying to cool off and still look good. Here are a few steps to help keep your skin fresh, clear, protected and keep your makeup in place! And what happens post-sun-fun? Well here are a few tips to nourish your skin and fight sunburns!

Cleanse! Use a cleanser with Antioxidants Vitamin A, C and E to neutralize impurities and sun exposure and help bind moisture to your skin. Murad’s Essential-C Cleanser removes potential irritants and features Mandarin Orange, Basil and Grapefruit making it smell yummy while it refreshes your skin!

Tone up! Not just your body, but your skin! If you’re prone to breakouts and oily skin during the hot summer months, choose a toner that will help combat breakouts while still moisturizing your skin to help keep it clear and healthy. Murad’s Clarifying Toner uses a blend of natural botanicals: Allantoin clams and soothes redness and irritation; Grape Seed Extract and Vitamin E are antioxidants that protect against free radicals.

Use an Oil-free sunscreen every day! Your skin is still susceptible to sun damage even if you are only outside for limited amounts of time during the work week. Choose a lightweight sunscreen to wear under your makeup each day. Be sure to choose a formula that has broad spectrum protection! Murad’s new Oil-Free Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 30 PA +++ has Pomegranate extract to protect against free radicals and Panthenol and Sodium PCA lock in moisture and keep skin soft and supple.
