The pain of applying moisturiser and sunscreen is real – especially before downing your first latte. Yet, it is crucial to keep our face well hydrated and protected. The skin on our face is thinner and more delicate, making it more prone to aging than the rest of our body. In our modern age, with so much environmental pollution and blue light radiation (not to mention that we live in a city with one of the highest levels of UV exposure), our skin is incredibly susceptible to premature ageing, sun spots, wrinkles and dullness.
Which is why we’re super excited about Uriage’s latest drop; a new and improved formula of their classic Thermal Water mist. This version comes with the same long lasting hydrating properties and added SPF 30 protection, because they understand what it’s like to be a busy woman on the go.
Hydration from the alps
The Uriage Water Mist SPF30 stays true to its roots with thermal water straight from the French alps, enhanced with a special hydro-thermal complex that hydrates and regenerates the skin. The skin barrier is strengthened with prolonged use by synthesizing Filaggrin and Claudin (proteins that exist in the skin), with each spritz forming an invisible, non-sticky film of moisture over your skin that gradually releases moisturising agents throughout the day, ensuring that you are really absorbing all that goodness instead of it simply evaporating. Think skin-loving ingredients like hyaluronic acid, alginate and aquaxyl that have been scientifically proven to do wonders when it comes to achieving that bouncy suppleness all the Korean celebrities seem to have.
Fun fact: a hydration test performed on 10 subjects showed an impressive 54.6% increase in hydration 2 hours after application, and 40.9% after 8 hours. Tell us that your moisturiser does that!
Not only does this mist keep your skin moisturised, it also nourishes your skin thanks to the added Vitamins C and E. Vitamin C works to keep your complexion bright and illuminated, while Vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant that protects your delicate skin from free radicals and everyday pollution. Paired with SPF30 UVA+UVB chemical filters, your skin is also well protected from harsh UV rays throughout the day. Did we mention that it also has a pleasant, floral and fruity fragrance?
Gentle on the skin
Despite the veritable host of ingredients that go into this powerful mist, the formula remains kind to even sensitive skin. It’s hypoallergenic and non-comedogenic, so you can spritz away in peace knowing that your skin won’t break out. The mist comes in a handy, travel-friendly size too, so you can spritz anytime during the day your skin needs a quick pick-me-up!
