The pollution in our air is becoming somewhat of a concern and this can be seen in recent news headlines as MPs from the environmental audit committee, environment, food and rural affairs committee, health committee and transport committee are soon to hold an inquiry into the impact the polluted air is having on people’s health.

But pollution affects our skin too – according to scientists it can be a cause of premature aging of the skin, especially in larger cities such as London and New York, with traffic being the main cause. This discovery is motivating cosmetic companies to look into ways we can help prevent this and look after our skin.

So far, research has shown vitamin B3 to be particularly effective. Antioxidants can also help protect our skin and plant extracts can help soothe it. Other ingredients can also work to improve our skin barrier function to create a defence against environmental aggressors. However, maintaining healthy skin is considered to be the best defence, so we are advised to stay clear of scrubs as these can do further damage to our natural barrier.

Theadlifting can also help prevent the appearance of wrinkles which makes your skin look more healthy and youthful. If you’d like to find out more about thread lifting courses, please contact us on 0207 183 3681.
