Is your skin REALLY protected from the environment?
Environmental skin damage is no joke, and when I say this notice that I didn’t limit it to sun damage. Sure, UV rays can make us look years older than we really are (and cause skin cancer), but we need to be wary of more than sunshine. Free radicals are all around us, and in addition to being generated by sunlight they are borne from pollution, chemicals we come in contact and more (and they’ll do a number on your complexion, too). As if that weren’t enough, researchers are beginning to take a closer look at infrared radiation as another cause of skin damage, and this type of invisible light-based energy is what causes the sensation of heat when your skin is exposed to the sun, as well as other sources like ovens and blowdryers.
So if you think applying your SPF every morning gets you a gold star for skin protection, guess again. For optimal protection, you should be using an antioxidant under your sunscreen as well—and reapplying throughout the day. I know this can be a bit inconvenient, but it doesn’t have to be with Lumion’s Oxygen Mist + HOCL.
Just a light misting of this protective skin pick-me-up shields skin from environmental aggressors, refreshes your makeup (without ruining it), hydrates and boosts radiance so your skin looks great—and stays that way. In addition to electrolyzed oxygenated water (like Gatorade for your skin) and mineral-rich Dead Sea salt, it features a unique ingredient called hypochlorous acid, which isn’t nearly as scary as it sounds. This is actually an infection-fighting compound found naturally in our bodies that has been found to neutralize the environmental factors that attack our skin while maximizing oxygen available to the cells and stimulating skin healing.
Sounds good, right? So maybe upping your skin protection should be on your pending New Year’s resolution list—and this mist is an easy and affordable way to start.
