We all know the toll that too much sunshine, alcohol and eating badly can take on our complexion; think wrinkles, age spots, sagging skin. But if you live or work in a large city, it turns out there’s another huge factor that’s prematurely ageing our skin: air pollution. Not just harmful to our lungs, toxic fumes are causing untold damage to our skin, too.
Traffic pollution is emerging as the single most toxic substance for skin and the dream of perfect skin is over for those living and working in traffic-polluted areas unless they take steps to protect their skin right now.
Unless people do more to protect their skin they will end up wearing the pollution on their faces in 10 years’ time.
Make sure you double cleanse your skin with a foaming cleanser such as Epionce Gentle Foaming Cleanser and once a week use a product which stimulates a very light exfoliation such as the Epionce Lytic Tx.
Also make sure you keep your skin protected with a sunscreen which contains a broad-spectrum UVA and UVB filter. This will help protect the skin from the environment.
