Like UV damage from our childhood comes back to haunt us, there’s the possibility that the damage pollution is doing to your skin right now, will show up on your skin in ten years.
In New Zealand and Australia, while we generally have cleaner air, we can experience localised pollution in high traffic areas. So what – it’s still not that bad, right? Wrong. We have extremely high UV levels and this UV / pollution combo is bad news for Australasian skins. The UV interacts with pollutants sitting on our skin, and damages skin both on the surface and at a deeper, cellular level.
It’s not just traffic pollution you need to worry about: the wide range of environments you encounter every day add to a toxic mix. Fireplaces and wood burners, fumes from chemicals used at your workplace, cigarette smoke, the greasy smoke that came off the pan when you cooked your Saturday brunch bacon. Yes, it all gets in.

So, start taking some easy steps to protect yourself against pollution’s premature ageing properties.

Hint: Struggling to drink more water? Start a new habit by drinking one glass each morning to kick start your day with extra hydration.
Hint: If budget allows, use a variety of masks across the week, to gain the benefits of different formulations.
