Spring is warming up and summer is just around the corner. With more time outdoors its even more important to make sure our skin if protected. While a little sunburn might not seem like a big deal, as few as five sunburns in your life can dramatically increase your risk for skin cancer.
Not to fear Murad skincare has launched the Shade America Sun Safety Set. Two special products to protect your skin and keep it beautiful all year long. Even better Murad has teamed up with the American Academy of Dermatology with the goal to shade 1 million children over the next 5 years by building shade structures in parks and playgrounds across America. Every purchase of the Shade America Sun Safety Set supports the Shade America initiative.
I have 3 immediate family members who have had skin cancer so this is a cause close to my own heart. And not only protecting my own skin but protecting my kids through learning sun safe habits and keeping them in shaded areas during the most dangerous house of the day.
What is Shade America?
Murad has teamed with the American Academy of Dermatology with the goal to shade 1 million children over the next 5 years by building shade structures in parks and playgrounds across America. By providing shade and sun-safety education programs, Shade America will help protect a new sun-smart generation from sun damage and skin cancer.
What is a shade structure?
Shade structures are permanent installations, similar to canopies, built to create shade in outdoor locations that are not protected from the sun, such as playgrounds, pools or recreation spaces.
Murad Shade America Sun Safety Set
This protect-and-correct Sun Safety Set pairs the bestselling Essential-C Day Broad Spectrum SPF 30 moisturizer with the sun-damage correcting Advanced Active Radiance Serum in an exclusive, full-size cosmetic bag featuring an original painting by Dr. Murad reproduced on fabric and printed on the inside.
The dreaded sun spots have started to show up from sun damage done in my younger sunbathing days and just lots of hours spent in the sun. I adore the Murad Advanced Active Radiance Serum, its so light and refreshing my skin feels fantastic when I apply it. It not only feels great its starting to lighten the sun spots on my cheeks. I apply every morning after I wash my face and per the instructions let it set for 60 seconds before using my moisturizer. With combination skin this feather light formula is perfect, hydrates without feeling heavy and leaves my skin feeling and looking radiant.
Advanced Active Radiance Serum (0.5 fl. oz) – With a faster-acting formula, the Advanced Active Radiance Serum boosts skin’s radiance and clarity and reverses visible signs of environmental damage with Resilient-C Complex™, a stable Vitamin C technology that delivers 50 times the collagen-building, skin-brightening power of topical Vitamin C.

Ectoin and Green Tea Extract jump start the cellular defense system by helping cells resist drastic environmental stresses including UV exposure and chemical aggressors
A must have moisturizer for combo skin. I have breakout problems with quite a few daily moisturizers but the lightweight Essential-C Day Moisture is hydrating without being greasy or heavy. The ultra light formula has a great citrus scent and absorbs quickly leaving my skin hydrated and protected with SPF30.
