When it comes to how many fine lines and wrinkles you’ll get, genetics are your skin’s number one enemy . But, number two? The air, pollution, blue light exposure, UVA/UVB rays, sleep deprivation, all count!
We all know about the damaging effects the sun can have on our skin, but the smog, particulate matter (minuscule particles of soot and dirt), and other grime in the air can also wreak havoc on skin. Overexposure to these toxins can lead to premature visible signs of ageing—the very fine lines and wrinkles you might be trying to avoid.
Becoming a recluse, avoiding mobile phones, computers and getting more sleep, is probably not a viable option for most of us! So, here’s the alternative solution: adding an anti-pollution product to your skincare routine. These antioxidant-rich formulas form an invisible shield between your skin and the air’s smog, debris, UVA/UVB and blue light, to prevent premature signs of aging caused by environmental factors.
BLUE LIGHT EXPOSURE
Protect sensitive skin against environmental damage and the drying effects of temperature changes with this strengthening and nourishing cream. The Darphin Calm Complex works to relieve reddened and inflamed skin, whilst Vitamin E strengthens and helps to hydrate the skin. Added Bran extract smoothes and firms the skin.
Formulated simply with fragrant herbal extracts and rosewater for a pleasant, pick me up for dehydrated, tight and uncomfortable skin. Spray your day and night creams for a boost of hydration or use it to set make-up or spray on dry hair throughout the day. Safe for all skin types, gentle, non-irritating.
