Living in the city can have its perks. Unfortunately, pollution is not one of them. Among other environmental aggressors such as the sun, pollution can have harmful effects on your skin especially if you are living in the city of London. London is one of the nine UK cities that breach the World Health Organisation’s safe health levels of air quality. The fast paced lifestyle and exposure to industrial emissions, exhaust gas, car fumes, and car exhausts can cause your skin redness, dry patches, breakouts and sensitivity. Over time exposure to pollution and the free radicals can break down your skin’s natural protection barrier resulting in premature signs of ageing.
The solution to save your skin is as follows:
Free radicals can lead to oxidisation which is a process wherein the skin cells get damaged. You can help to prevent this by using Daily Supplements which are full of antioxidants.
Cleansing, Exfoliating and Toning
Dr Alexandrides recommends a three step approach to successfully remove the dirt and grime caused by life in the city. Firstly use the Lift Off Exfoliating Cleanser, a cleanser and exfoliator in one. The deep cleansing acid will remove impurities from the day.
After this, use the Daily Orbit Energising Essence which is infused with antioxidants to fight free radicals and neutralises the effects of pollution.
The Y Theorem Repair Serum hydrates the skin and improves elasticity whilst helping to repair the skin. Use before bed to allow the product to fully penetrate and heal the skin.
