Introducing the New Lilikoi Mineral Defense Collection from Eminence
As we transition into summer time, sun protection should be a top skincare priority!
Shielding yourself from harmful UV rays will help prevent signs of premature aging and hyperpigmentation, as well as reduce your risk of skin cancer.
Luckily, Eminence has you covered (literally) with their NEW Lilikoi Mineral Defense Collection which defends your skin from drying environmental stressors while providing lightweight all-mineral SPF sun protection!
First of all, what is Lilikoi?
Lilikoi, or passion fruit, is a powerhouse superfruit that is a valuable source of nutrients, like Vitamins A, B, and C, for both the body and the skin.
Vitamin C is a potent antioxidant that keeps skin looking firm and youthful by fighting free-radical damage and also helps to treat and prevent dark spots.
Another antioxidant and free radical fighter is Vitamin A, which repairs and protects DNA damage and increases the rate of cell turnover, strengthening the skin and preventing signs of aging.
Essential fatty acids found in Lilikoi help to prevent damage by protecting the skin’s lipid barrier function, keeping moisture and natural hyaluronic acid in and pollutants out.
Finally, another important key nutrient found in Lilikoi is Vitamin B, specifically riboflavin (Vitamin B2) and niacin (Vitamin B3). Riboflavin increases cellular health, decreases inflammation and repairs hyperpigmentation.
Niacin helps to reduce the appearance of hyperpigmentation while also reducing blotchiness as well as fine lines and wrinkles. All of these incredible nutrients are packed into the Lilikoi Defense Collection to defend your skin’s health while protecting against sun damage with all mineral SPF.
What’s in the Lilikoi Mineral Defense Collection?
First in the collection is the Lilikoi Light Defense Face Primer. This lightweight, illuminating face primer with SPF 23 visibly improves the look of skin exposed to blue light stress and helps prevent sunburn.
Natural minerals like Zinc Oxide and Titanium Dioxide protect against the damaging effects of sun exposure by blocking UV rays while antioxidant and vitamin C rich Lilikoi Seed Oil helps with the visible signs of aging, resulting in a youthful glow.
Cocoa Seed Extract (a blend of cocoa peptides, saccharides and polyphenols) also helps to minimize the visible effects of aging and blue light pollution. Moisturizing Larch Tree protects the skin from drying environmental stressors, and subtle illuminating properties in the primer give the skin a healthy, “lit from within” effect, resulting in a glowing, radiant complexion.
To use, layer Lilikoi Light Defense Face Primer after moisturizer, or use it a protective base before applying foundation to minimize the look of imperfections and provide a lightweight base for flawless makeup application.
For best results in UV protection, apply liberally 15 minutes prior to sun exposure and be sure to use a water-resistant sunscreen, like the Lilikoi Mineral Defense Sport Sunscreen, if swimming or sweating.
An easy to apply, non-greasy formulation for both face and body, the Lilikoi Mineral Defense Sport Sunscreen provides water resistant, SPF 30, all-mineral sun protection for up to 40 minutes.
This sunscreen protects skin form UV damage with Zinc Oxide and minimizes the accelerated appearance of aging caused by sun exposure with antioxidant rich Lilikoi Seed Oil and moisturizing Raspberry Seed Oil. Aloe Vera moisturizes and soothes dry skin, alleviating the appearance of sun damage. The skin is left soft and hydrated with a lightweight finish for fresh, natural looking skin.
This product is highly effective for outdoor activities like swimming and high-performance sports where perspiration can impact the effectiveness of standard sunscreen. Reapply every 2 hours or, if swimming or sweating, every 40 minutes to dry skin.
Suitable for all skin types, both products in the Lilikoi Mineral Defense Collection are vegan and gluten free, feature non-nano technology and have no white cast.
