Moisturizing and protective creams: taking care of your skin in the city

Posted on April 23 2015



Hey Pretty Birds,
do you already know how you will protect your skin form the first rays of sunshine in the city? We at ATPB want to recommend a few creams that you can use everyday, as an SPF layer or make-up base, that will shield your skin against all environmental aggressors, including pollution. It’s time to update your beauty bag!


Galenic Protective Moisturizing Aquapulpe Cream SPF 15 delivers long lasting moisture thanks to the patented Wild berry extract and to its Hydra-reserve system with osmo-regulating active ingredients.
Our advice: slather this cream on your face and neck.

Kaleido Anti-wrinkle cream SPF 30 with pure Hyaluronic acid is a 3-in-1 product: it delivers sun protection, moisture and an effective anti-wrinkle action. We like it because it contains Vitamin E, Shea butter, pure vegetable Glycerin and a softening agent extracted from coconuts.
Our advice: apply on your face in the morning.

Nuxe Crème Prodigieuse® DD Crème lets you maintain a glowing complexion in a polluted urban environment. Its smooth, lightweight texture divinely glides onto your skin. Its “bare-skin effect” shade blends into all skin tones.
Our advice: use as a make-up base.

Aesop Sage & Zinc Facial Hydrating Cream is the ideal moisturizer for anyone living in the city. Micronized Zinc Oxide forms a barrier to reflect sunlight while Sandalwood purifies and Sage leaf calms and soothes skin.
Our advice: this cream works on all skin types, even the most delicate.

Avon Nutra Effects Radiance Illuminating Day Cream SPF 20 is a protective moisturizer with a light texture that immediately gives skin a smoother and softer appearance.
Our advice: if you have very fair skin, it is vital to use a high-SPF cream.

Dior Hydra Life BB Crème SPF 30 combines the moisturising and protective powers of a skincare product with the complexion-perfecting and skin-evening properties of a foundation.
Our advice: this is an excellent alternative to foundation, if you like a more natural look.

Bottega Verde Goji Perfect Intensive Day and Night Treatment SPF 15
has a velvety texture. It has an anti-age action thanks to Hyaluronic Acid, Pro-Retinol and Goji extract, obtained from the famous berries also known as the “lonegevity fruit”, with their powerful antioxidant and protective action.
Our advice: apply morning and evening for an immediate effect.

Dior Hydra Life Pro-Youth Protective Crème SPF 15 is a rich and voluptuous moisturizer acting like a defense shield against external aggressions.
Our advice: this is the ideal product for dry skin.

L’Occitane Tinted Perfecting Cream is formulated with the Perfecting Peony Complex, CC pigments and pearlescent particles. It has a silky texture that blends when applied to skin, giving it a luminous, natural look.
Our advice: use this cream as an illuminating, refining make-up base.

Uriage AquaPRĒCIS Fluide Protecteur SPF20 is a hydrating and protecting lotion, the ideal product to protect skin against all environmental aggressions (pollution, free radicals, UV rays). It contains Vitamin E, glycerin and a UVA/UVB SPF 20 filter. With its light texture it is suitable to all skin types.
Our advice: this is also a good base for make-up and it is perfect to protect skin against the first sunrays of the season in the city.
