As you guys know, I live in Manchester and I have always been so proud of living in such a fab city. However, city life does come with a couple of downsides, one of them being pollution. As we are coming to realise, pollution doesn’t just effect your health, but your skin too, and so as anti-pollution skin care becomes more and more popular, brands such as Murad are stepping up with their own cosmesceutical offerings. Cue the Murad City Skin range!
The Murad City Skin Sage Defence SPF 50 is a lightweight sunscreen, made 100% from minerals, meaning it goes on lightly and brightly. Containing an upgraded SPF Protection, it not only smoothes out skin but helps to protect from the 5 main causes of pollution that aid aging, including UVA and UVB rays and blue light from digital devices. I like using this after my daytime moisturiser and before my makeup, almost as a primer, and I can’t believe how light it feels for such high SPF 50 protection. It might be on the pricy side at £45, but I love it.
For nights in after a day in the sun (or at your laptop!) Murad have also created the City Skin Overnight Detox Moisturizer to hydrate your skin in the evening. This is a night-time moisturiser which detoxifies the skin overnight from the pollutants and toxins that have accumulated throughout the day. As with many other Murad products, it contains a great amount of Vitamin C and other super-charged anti-oxidants to help our skin brighten and heal. Perfect for those, who like me, live a fast city life and need a little soothing at night…
