How to Repair the Look of Summer Sun Damage
Posted August 23, 2016
You come inside from a day at the beach and look in the mirror, only to see deeper forehead wrinkles and a few new brown spots staring back at you. If you haven’t been as good as you should be about applying sunscreen every two hours, chances are you’ve accumulated some sun damage over the summer. Just because you didn’t get a sunburn doesn’t mean the sun’s rays didn’t harm your skin. “90% or more of wrinkles are from exposure to UV rays,” says Board Certified Dermatologist Dr. Doris Day, MD.
The best way to prevent sun damage is to #AlwaysReapply with our Colorescience® Brush-on Sunscreen, but luckily we have proven ingredients in our products, LUMIRA™ and peptides, to help reduce the appearance of those dark spots and fine lines and wrinkles.
LUMIRA™ - Helps Treat Skin Discoloration
What is LUMIRA™? It is a clinically tested, highly effective complex that addresses the appearance of skin discoloration included in Colorescience® Even Up® Clinical Pigment Perfector® SPF 50. This groundbreaking 3-in-1 formula is lightly tinted to provide immediate blurring of skin imperfections. It has been clinically shown to improve the look of discoloration in as little as 12 weeks, allowing your natural, beautiful skin to shine through. Real people are experiencing the results. “Does everything it claims: brightens and evens skin tone, protects skin, and I did notice a difference in my skin after using this product for months,” says Sntzo, a Sephora.com customer.
The bonus of SPF 50 helps you start your day guarded against future sun damage. This first layer of protection gives you the confidence to step out of the house each day feeling protected from damage. “I had a lot of brown spots and a lot of sun damage from my youth and over the last several years of protecting my skin with Even Up, my skin is smoother and more youthful. It really does work,” says Dr. Prasad, MD.
With the three-fold benefit of instant coverage, evening of skin tone over time and high SPF protection, what more could you want? “Colorescience® Even Up is one of my all-time favorite products – it is a sun protectant, concealer and foundation 3-in-1 product that brightens, corrects AND protects your skin with SPF 50,” says blogger TheBubbleGumBlonde.
Peptides – Help Treat Fine Lines and Wrinkles
So what exactly is a peptide? Peptides are small pieces of protein that exist naturally in our skin. Colorescience® Anti-aging Serum helps reduce the appearance of sun damage with Decaplex-10™, a proprietary blend of 10 peptides that work synergistically together coupled with hyaluronic acid and cosmetic enhancing ingredients, which help the look of your skin appear refreshed and youthful. It’s clinically shown to improve the look of fine lines and wrinkles and boost skin radiance. “Love the glow it gives my skin. Minimizes the appearance of wrinkles and skin feels toned. Placing my second order,” says Janice, a Colorescience customer.
By the end of the summer, if you haven’t treated your skin well and kept it protected, it can tend to look dull, dry and lifeless. A great feature of the Anti-aging Serum is that it provides hydration and adds an instant glow to the skin. “We have a patented combination of peptides and with those peptides over 6-8 weeks, you’re going to notice a dissipation of the look of fine lines and wrinkles. The best thing about this is instant gratification and rehydration of the skin. It gives you that ‘J Lo glow.’” – Kerrie Quinby, Director of Artistry
End of summer doesn’t have to mean living with sun damage. We’ve got you covered (literally) with products that provide both instant skin-blurring and illuminating and clinical results* over time.
