Meet The Body Shop’s new generation of skincare that helps fight pollution and preserves your skin’s youthful appearance.
Cities worldwide are breaking the legal limit for pollution, and you can’t help but be exposed to pollution on a daily basis. Your daily commute to work, a walk in the park or having coffee outdoors at a café – your skin is exposed to the harmful effects of pollution every day.
There is growing concern on the connection between pollution and premature skin ageing. According to a recent study, it was discovered that people living in busy cities tend to have lower levels of Vitamin E, decreased barrier function and dehydrated skin compared with people living in more rural areas. City skin is often less prepared and less protected. Up to 80 percent of the damage and ageing your skin experiences day after day is linked to external aggressors like UV and pollution.
Tackling this head on, The Body Shop has found a solution to pollution with a 100 percent vegan skincare regime.
Here’s a skincare routine to help tackle urban stress.
