Lets face it, no matter what your skin tone is, you must take care of your skin by protecting it from the sun! When you are out there in the sun with the least amount of clothes on it is really difficult to protect your skin. Thankfully Jennifer Bradley, Celebrity Makeup Artist and Professional Cosmetic Creator, really cherishes her skin, and has created the perfect way to protect it.
Here are some summer skin care tips I received that I just had to share with you all:
Guide to Summertime Skin Care
First and foremost, it’s important for all to know that exposure to the sun causes:
- Pre-cancerous and cancerous skin cells/lesions
- Benign tumors
- Fine and coarse wrinkles
- Discolored areas of the skin, called mottled pigmentation
- Sallowness — a yellow discoloration of the skin
- Telangiectasia — the dilation of small blood vessels under the skin
- Elastosis — the destruction of the elastic tissue causing lines and wrinkles
Let’s not forget that sun exposure is the number one cause of skin cancer, which can be deadly.
So, here is how to cope with the heat and the sun:
Cover up! Wear face makeup that has a lot of titanium dioxide in it to protect skin from the sun. Titanium Dioxide is a naturally occurring ingredient that acts as a physical barrier against the suns harmful rays.
Foundation is key! Jennifer Bradley’s 4-in-one Camera Ready Foundation doesn’t cause breakouts, feels clean to the touch, and really perfects skin tone and texture. Plus it is a complete concealer and a dewy powder finish — compressing four products into one. Having that physical barrier between skin and UV rays is absolutely essential on a day-to-day basis.
Fake it baby! This look is easy to achieve using a makeup with a non-shimmery fine bronzer. Jennifer Bradley makes the perfect bronzer – B est Bronzer. It gives all skin tones a warm glow without the shine or cake look. Best Bronzer can work wonders for extremely fair skin or on darker skin. Bradley has used this product on Barack Obama, too to give him a healthy glow right before he was elected. Best Bronzer really perks up a tired face. It can truly change your appearance in a positive way. When you look better, you certainly feel better, too.
Moisturize, moisturize and moisturize some more! If you get overexposed for any reason, Bradley suggests a product that has no fragrance and contains natural plant anti-inflammatory ingredients to cool and calm. Cooling Moisture Serum from Jennifer Bradley Co. does just that. It deeply moisturizes and takes the redness away. This is also an excellent product to use as a daily moisturizer for rosacea prone skin or extremely sensitive skin.
So here are the rules:
- Cover up!
- Start with the Foundation!
- Fake it baby!
- Moisturize a few times!
