Urban Care: Protecting Your Skin From The Sun In The City

Urban Care: Protecting Your Skin From The Sun In The City by Michela Marra

Dear Pretty Birds,

When roaming the city in summer we need to protect our skin from the sun’s rays with specific products that are different from the sun care products we normally use at the beach, lake or when we are in the mountains. The difference? These creams, BB creams and treatments have been developed especially for city life and also prevent damage from the negative effects of the sun’s harmful rays which flood closed environments. Furthermore, they offer even more specific protection because they not only protect skin from ultraviolet rays, but also from pollution, dryness and oxidation. Finally, a lot of products are designed to help with spots and fragile capillaries. Texture is also considered: regular sun care products tend to be quite weighty or greasy because they must be water and sweat resistant, and because they are meant to be used for a limited period of time. These products are rich in filters which are deposited on the skin, yet they do not contain softening or moisturizing filters. In short, they are certainly not ideal for daily use. All of these reasons clearly prove that we must integrate specific products into our beauty regime. We’ve selected some products which meet different needs. Have a look at the gallery and find the ones that are most suitable for you.

Even Better™ Skin Tone Correcting Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 20 by Clinique is a hydrating day cream that helps counter and prevent dark spots thanks to its elevated solar protection. It keeps skin hydrated for the entire day and soothes irritations.

Estée Lauder Skin Essentials Daywear BB Crème SPF35 is a multitasking product. This impalpable cream simultaneously gives skin a uniform tone and instant vitality while providing strong protection thanks to its Super Anti-Oxidant complex and SPF 35. It also provides non-greasy hydration.

Urban Environment UV Protection Cream Plus SPF50 by Shiseido is a protective cream that has a very light consistency, provides extraordinary hydration and protects skin from harmful external factors like UV rays, dry air, metropolitan stress and pollution and leaves skin looking healthy, vital and beautiful. This is also thanks to the Hydro Restoring Complex which contains hydrating amino acids naturally contained in the skin. It is invisible on the skin and can be used as a base for makeup.

New daily light guard™ defense fluid broad spectrum SPF 30 by Aveda can be used on top of your normal moisturizing day cream to help skin fight elements that cause visible damage on a daily basis.

Hydrabio Eau De Soin SPF30 di Bioderma is the first hydrating, protective treatment water that prevents photo-ageing and simultaneously fixes makeup.

Multi-Intensive Crema Antietà Notte Multi Intensiva by Clarins is a re-filling, anti-spot cream that works during the night to replenish the exact amount of hydration lost throughout the day.

Uriage HYSÉAC Fluide SPF 50+ pairs active protection with a formula that has properties suited for combination or oily skin. This cream has a light, non-comedogenic texture which not only guarantees intense protection, but also ensures a dual performance: it is both hydrating and mattefying.

Restoring Cream SPF30 di Valmont has both a rich and liquid consistency, yet it penetrates quickly and is neither sticky nor oily. It leaves skin feeling silky and soft, and provides lasting hydration.

Shiseido Ibuki Protective Moisturizer SPF 15 is a multi-active day moisturizer. Its formula contains a delicate reflecting powder which immediately corrects flaws such as enlarged pores, spots, acne scars, and roughness. It also prevents these imperfections from reappearing thus increasing the skin’s resistance. It renews the skin’s surface to expose a texture that is incredibly smooth and uniform, and provides hydration which lasts throughout the day.
