The changing fall colors and chilly weather means we’ll be putting away our swimsuits and sandals and bundling up in cozy sweaters and boots. Contrary to popular belief, this doesn’t mean that it’s also time to put away your sun protection. The sun’s rays are causing damage 365 days per year, potentially leading to wrinkles, hyperpigmentation and skin cancer. It’s a fact that 90% of skin aging is caused by the sun. (Source)
At Colorescience, we believe that SPF should be part of both your skin care and beauty routines from start to finish. We’ve made it simple to ensure you’re receiving proper protection by including SPF in every layer.
First Layer - Choose Your Treatment
Do you suffer from redness, rosacea or adult acne?
Prime and color correct your skin with Colorescience All Calm™ Clinical Redness Corrector SPF 50. All Calm is a first-of-its-kind, 3-in-1 proprietary formula that not only offers instant redness color correction, but also provides ongoing soothing and calming relief through its use of our patent pending BioSolaceÔ complex. The addition of 100% mineral SPF 50 ensures immediate protection first thing in the morning.
“I have used tons of green primers, powders etc. to reduce redness. First application on cheeks and redness disappeared. Couldn't believe it! Super light and didn't even need foundation and has sunscreen! A dream!” – Colorescience customer, Maria
"This redness corrector has a green tint to it, it neutralizes and balances out redness. I have only been using it for four days, I applied underneath my foundation to act like a primer. At first, I was concerned about the thickness of this cream, worried if it balls up underneath foundations, but it didn't! During the weekend, when I just went out to grab coffee and/or grocery, I just wore this alone; it balanced out my skin tone and provided sun protection." - Beauty Blogger @luvsummeikup
Do you suffer from sun damage and hyperpigmentation?
Even out skin tone and address long-term discoloration with Colorescience Even Up® Clinical Pigment Perfector® SPF 50. Worn alone or under foundation, this product instantly blurs the look of imperfections, while offering long-term skin brightening results through the use of LUMIRA®, a clinically tested, highly effective complex that addresses the appearance of skin discoloration. Just like All Calm, Even Up also includes 100% mineral SPF 50, offering you immediate sun protection with your first layer.
“My skin looks fantastic while using even up. I'm 57 with age spots as well as sun damage. Very happy I spent the money. I will not be without Even Up. I usually wear it alone, gives me enough coverage as well as protect my face in the sun.” – Colorescience customer, Melissa
“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.
Second Layer – Sunforgettable® Brush-on Sunscreen SPF 50
Every skin type and tone can wear our Sunforgettable Brush-on Sunscreen SPF 50. Ideal for layering on top of our treatments and foundations, the brush acts as a translucent setting powder. You’ll actually want to reapply the recommended every two hours because it mattifies and beautifies your complexion.
“Layering sunscreen is a concept that is unique. Nobody wants to put a really thick, lotion sunscreen on top of another thick, lotion sunscreen. That’s what’s so nice with the mineral base. It can be easily reapplied. There are very few sunscreens that you can actually apply and say, ‘Hey I look better!” says Board Certified Plastic Surgeon Janet Turkle, MD.
“This powder sunscreen is the best for reapplying sunscreen throughout the day if you don't want to mess up your makeup, or keep adding layers making you feel greasy.” – Colorescience customer, Sarah
Since we’ve made it so simple, there’s no excuse to skip your sun protection this fall. Just choose the treatment that matches your particular skin issues, grab a Sunforgettable Brush-on Sunscreen and you’re ready to face the day. If you’re looking for fuller coverage, we also offer foundations in loose, pressed and liquid formulations, depending on your specific skin type, all with mineral SPF protection.
