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.

Hexapeptide-2, a skin brightening peptide and Indian Fig boost skin clarity and encourage cell renewal to keep skin radiant.
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.

Essential-C Day Moisture Broad Spectrum SPF 30 | PA +++ (1.7 fl. oz) – This antioxidant-rich broad spectrum sunscreen provides powerful protection against sun damage, prevents free radical damage and improves skin’s appearance and elasticity.

Ectoin, a protective substance produced by organisms called extremophiles that thrive in the harshest conditions on the planet, improves skin’s barrier function by reducing trans-epidermal water loss to preserve deep hydration. Contains MuraSol™ Antioxidant Defense, a proprietary blend of powerful antioxidants that penetrate the skin’s top layers and create a protective barrier of encapsulated free radical neutralizers

 

Through the sales of this set, Murad will donate $125,000 to the American Academy of Dermatology to build shade structures across America. The Shade America Sun Safety is a great value set for only $68 ($105 value!) and is available on Murad.com, Ulta and Massage Envy Spas nationwide.

Yes, yes a million times yes! As I was putting on my many layers of creams and serums yesterday I thought why the heck are there so many and why do none of them have an SPF. Murad heard my call and the mailman delivered a bottle that contains everything I need in one step!

The new Murad Invisiblur Perfecting Shield is a broad spectrum SPF 30. So it protects my skin from future damage while improving the appearance of lines, wrinkles and my skins texture. And the serum is so light and silky it feels like silk going on and leaves my skin so smooth. It works great with makeup or alone. Seriously this stuff is fantastic. I will update how its working on my skin and a few weeks use. Until then I need to plot what to do with all my extra time now that I don’t have to spackle layers of cream and SPF on every day.

Murad’s Essential-C Cleanser is refreshing!

IMG_4574

To go along with my newly-purchased moisturizer (below) I also picked up Murad’s Essential-C Cleanser! I love this stuff. It is so invigorating, so refreshing! The soft, gentle cleanser has these little beads of citrus that just wake your skin up!

Patented antioxidant-rich cleanser using Vitamins A, C and E neutralize and rehydrate environmentally damaged skin by removing impurities and awakening the senses with a burst of citrus.

Antioxidant Vitamins A, C and E neutralize free radicals and other environmental aggressors while Phospholipids bind moisture to the skin. Essential-C Cleanser establishes a well-hydrated foundation for application of a treatment product.

Massage a small amount over dampened face and neck. Rinse with warm water and pat dry. For optimal results, follow with Essential-C Toner and Essential-C Daily Renewal Complex during the day.

Like all of their products, a little goes a long way…. so $36 ain’t bad if you ask me!
