We all know that wearing SPF protection is important to preserving the health of our skin but how do you make it a habit in your home-care regime?
This is a question frequently asked by our spa guests who already have a lot to think about in their day. That is why our team is excited to introduce Colorescience – a brand that is obsessively overprotective about preventing sun damage. They make beautiful, easy to apply products that are chemical free and approved by physicians, dermatologists and estheticians to help protect your skin every day.
Damage from the sun’s UV rays, pollution and free radicals are some of the leading causes of aging skin. Free radicals are caused when the skin encounters UV rays, pollution and even blue light given off from our phones and computers. (And who hasn’t been spending a little extra time in front of screens these days with Zoom meetings and Facetime with family?) These free radicals start a chain reaction which results in hyperpigmentation (sun spots), loss of tone, redness, broken capillaries and wrinkles.
The way to fend off these pesky free radicals is with antioxidants. Colorescience uses premium, plant derived antioxidants and hyaluronic acid to nourish, hydrate and treat the skin. Their formulations are natural, light to the touch and convenient to apply. They use zinc oxide and titanium dioxide to form a physical mineral barrier against environmental stressors.
This means their products are non-irritating and incredibly safe – perfect for everyday use or after in-spa treatments such as microdermabrasion or chemical peels. They are even recognized by the Skin Cancer Foundation.
Colorescience has different finishing products to achieve this protection…. from pure mineral powders to tinted moisturizers. The Total Eye 3-in-1 with SPF 35 is already a staff favourite. If you need help selecting a product, please email Senior Esthetician Sondra for a recommendation at Sondra@spiritspa.ca or schedule a personal consultation HERE.
