WHAT IS AIR POLLUTION?
Tiny air particles or greenhouse gases caused by traffic and other urban activities. This is not only a problem in big cities; even areas with a lot of industry, such as manufacturing or airports have air pollutants.
WHAT EFFECTS DOES THIS HAVE ON MY SKIN?
These air pollutants are considerably smaller than your pores, which makes it easy for them to penetrate into your skin and cause, for example, oxidative stress.
Numerous studies* have proven the link between air pollution and premature skin aging. The effects: wrinkles, reduced skin elasticity and pigmentation issues.

If you have sensitive skin, this means that the skin's own protective mechanism is compromised, making it particularly susceptible to air pollutants. Thus, your skin might have redness, itching and dry spots. Additionally, excessive scrubbing when cleansing your face or aggressive ingredients in cosmetics can also cause irritation.
That is why you need to care for your sensitive skin with special products that contain strengthening and gentle ingredients; without compromising naturalness! #naturalisglamorous
