Defend your skin against urban aggression

The negative effects of the environment are a serious concern when it comes to skin health. Apart from UV damage, the most significant pollutant is cigarette smoke. Passive smoking can have a negative effect, as can city smog, car fumes and dehydrating air conditioning systems.

 

How can I address this?

  • Opt for a diet high in natural antioxidants or take oral antioxidant supplements such as Coenzyme Q10 or Green Tea extract.
  • Ensure you effectively and thoroughly cleansing morning and night with an SLS free cleanser which is pH balanced (try Synergie Skin Cleansers). Never go to bed without cleansing!
  • Hydronic heating and evaporative cooling is kinder to skin than air-vent heating/cooling
  • Apply daily sun protection to fight UV damage (try ÜberZinc and ÜberZinc Body)
  • Set your makeup with a pollution and Infrared defence spritz (try EnvIroshield)
  • Use topical antioxidants daily that will effectively combat the effects of free radical damage created by environmental pollutants. The most potent skin antioxidants include:
    • Vitamin C (try SupremaC+ or Pure-C Crystals)
    • Green tea concentrate
    • Lycopene in the form of hydrolysed tomato skin extract
