5:30 pm, September 17th | by Colette McIntyre
In today’s Read of the Day, Reductress teaches us the most effective ways to combat our pesky smile lines, age spots, under-eye circles, and dull skin.
Beauty or blemish creams have taken skincare to the next level with multi-tasking formulas that utilize antioxidants, SPF, and most recently, behavior changing additives to keep you looking youthful! Here’s how to find the one that’s best for you.
If You Have: Deep Smile Lines: Urban Decay Naked Skin Beauty Balm, ($23)
This lightweight formula firms the surface of your skin while its signature Micropapules™ penetrate the pores and permanently alter your brain chemistry with depressants – reducing instances of smiling by at least 89%. The emotional paralysis that follows is sure to bring out your inner stone-faced beauty.
Don’t Use: While operating heavy machinery
If You Have: Age Spots: Clinique’s Age Defense Beauty Balm, ($37)
Don’t ask us how, but the geniuses at Clinique have concocted an Age Defense Beauty Balm that circumvents the damaging effects of UV rays. Sure it’s got the same SPF 30 as other tinted moisturizers, but it also boasts light sensitive phototonic spheres* that emit a small electric shock penetrating deep into your brain stem when exposed to direct sunlight. Ye-owch! That’s some tough love for your skin. But trust us – it’s worth it. Our intern Karen reported that she spent Sunday rocking in a corner of her apartment waiting for the pain to stop and saved herself the nasty sunburn she might have incurred at the beach.
*This product is not yet FDA approved but a Clinique rep. assured us that it tested 98% effective in clinical trials on Gulf War veterans.
Don’t Use: If you’re prone to conspiracy theories or seizures.
