Beauty editor-approved: envelop your skin in the ultimate protection

Because to be kind to your skin, you need to get smart with the elements

Like most busy 21st century women, multitasking is a concept I’m well familiar with. Making breakfast whilst I check my emails, putting my makeup on whilst catching up on the day’s news...I like to think I’ve got this down. Now it’s time to get acquainted with the ultimate multitasking beauty product of the moment. I was told that Blue Therapy Multi-defender SPF 25 can juggle protection, repairing and healing, all at the same time. So I wanted to see if it could match my multitasking credentials.

Combating aging from outdoor exposure

It is well researched that 80% of signs of aging are caused by our exposure to the sun and airborne pollutants, leaving our skin dull, lackluster and susceptible to looking old before its time. Although this is a highly surprising statistic, other daily protection creams only protect against 25% of the exposure to these outdoor elements. However, Biotherm has the solution, and it comes in the form of a tiny jar containing a powerful, multi-action, skincare superhero. In unprecedented protection, Blue Therapy Multi Defender gives the most complete shield against all aging accelerators including UVB, long UVA and pollution.

Complex lives deserve the support of a complex formula

It’s not that I haven’t heeded the warnings about what pollution and sun exposure can do, being part of the #livemore editorial team means you’re being constantly reminded. It’s just that I’ve never been keen on sacrificing my city life or indulgent beach holidays either. So I’m all too happy to find a product that protects for me, so I can get on with living!

With my face freshly cleansed in no time (thank you Biosource Cleansing Micellar Water !) I was ready to apply my defence for the day. My first encounter with this product is a refreshingly light one. Creamy to the touch, it quickly broke into water, disappearing into my cheeks in an instant. After a full application, my skin was feeling surprisingly fresh for all that protection I’d just loaded on. So far, so good!

Putting protection to the test

I didn’t need to change my daily routine to put the multi-defender credentials to the test. The morning dash across the city on foot during rush hour presented plenty of challenges.

Sure, on the surface my skin felt smooth and silky, but behind the scenes was where the magic was happening. The formula is concentrated in the antioxidant, Baicalin, and anti-pollution Red algae Furcellaria Lumbricalis to defend like never before against aging accelerators.

A recent study showed that applying a daily protective product alleviated or completely prevented structural changes to the skin caused by the elements (aka our worst enemy...wrinkles!). As a woman who soon turns...actually, I’m not going to go there. Let’s just say I’m grateful for the regenerating power of Algae of Youth in this product, to visibly repair signs of aging like dark spots, deep wrinkles and a lack of firmness.

Verdict?

A more even complexion, smoother and firmer skin...on top of all that protection. YES PLEASE. From one easy application, I get complete, hydrating care - why wouldn’t you give it a try?
