The poor air quality in big cities affects the skin and health more than most would think. Environmental pollution, harmful particles of toxic and smoke, and oxidative stress damage skin in ways that break its protective barrier, causing further impairment that leads to a fatigued complexion, clogged pores, sagging skin, wrinkles and even skin cancer in the long run.

Adapting to a fail proof skincare routine including an exceptional cleanser, a free radical fighting serum, a smart SPF and products packed with antioxidants, plant extracts and powerful active ingredients are therefore mandatory in order to attain a good-looking, healthy skin condition.
