The sun came out in Portland this past weekend. And it didn’t just come out, it came out with a vengeance, drying up the perma-puddles and sending sun-starved Portlanders in search of tank tops, shorts and pedicures. Then came the aftermath -- photos on Facebook, with the caption, “maybe it will turn into a tan,” and a run on aloe vera gel at the drugstore.
But until it does turn into a tan, consider toning down your sunburn with Pistachio! Alima Pure’s Color Balancing Powder in Pistachio is perfect for toning down unwanted red, and although that usually refers to redness from rosacea or allergies, Pistachio is an equal-opportunity red-fighter; sunburn and windburn also fade away under this soft green powder.
Of course, having Pistachio in your collection doesn’t mean that you should skip the sunscreen…far from it! But sometimes, no matter how hard you try to reapply, you end up with too much sun. When you do, just buff on Pistachio with your #15 Flat Top Foundation Brush, #21 Buff Brush or #25 Foundation Brush, and follow with your regular foundation. Or, if your sunburn is on your body, skip the foundation and just let Pistachio do all the work. You’ll be amazed at how efficient it can be!
