SUMMER SKIN GUIDE; PROTECT AND PREVENT YOUR SKIN FROM PREMATURE AGEING


FullSizeRender

Did you know that 80% of our skin’s ageing over time is due to day-to-day pollutions and environmental aggressors like the sun? Jaw dropping right?

This premature ageing occurs due to free radicals, such as ultraviolet radiation from the sun and pollution from the environment damaging the skin, causing fine line and wrinkles, age spots and loss of elasticity.

We are told from such a young age how important sunscreen is but for most of us, this reality doesn’t really sink in until much, much further down the track. Now I’m not saying you should avoid the sun completely. After all the sun does provide us with valuable Vitamin D – Vitamin D allows the body to absorb calcium into our bones- but what I am saying that with the right care and protection everyone can get what they want!

Like SPF, antioxidants can be used to target, reduce and prevent the signs of premature ageing from free radial damage from daily pollutions. Sounds simple right?

It seems the team at Ultracueticals understand this completely. They have designed two simple to use products that work synergistically together to ‘protect and prevent’ the skin from unnecessary oxidative stress which can cause premature ageing.

The Ultra Protective Antioxidant Complex and the Ultra UV Protective Daily Shield SPF 50+ Mineral Defence Sunscreen are made to be applied as a duo, working together, hand in hand to neutralise day-to-day free radicals and protect you from harmful UV rays. It’s the combination of these simple to use products that will leave a lasting impression.

 

Read below for my individual product review.

The Ultra Protective Antioxidant Complex

A complex of powerful antioxidants like Chaparrel – a potent anti-inflammatory & antioxidant -, Milk Thistle – an antioxidant that reduces free radical damage -, Pro-Vitamin C & E – both help to reduce the appearance of photo ageing and cell damage– and Coffee – a potent free radical scavenger and Antioxidant – which all come together to help reduce the visible signs of premature ageing and protect your skin from daily pollutions and environmental aggressors . A velvet-like serum the Ultra Protective Antioxidant Complex glides over your skin leaving it feeling fresh and radiant but without any excess shine. Perfect for applying makeup over!

Ultra UV Protective Daily Shield SPF 50+

Before I even start delving into the quality, protecting and skin care benefits of this non-greasy formula – perfect for going under makeup – Ultra UV Protective Daily ShieldSPF 50+ is a 100% mineral Sunscreen that actually ADAPTS to your natural skin colour allowing you to blend the cream perfectly into the skin leaving a radiant healthy glow! That aside, Mineral Defence is packed with added antioxidants and little goodies like Vitamin B3 & E – to protect heal and improve hydration – and Sheabutter and B5 – to support the skin’s hydration – to protect your skin while on the go. On a personal note I’m happy to admit this little beauty has made a firm home in both my kit and my person skincare wardrobe! Bring on the Summer sunshine!
