city skin detox

We are becoming increasingly aware of the hazards of our urban lifestyle on our skin and the cosmetics industry has followed suit, introducing a new crop of products laced with super-antioxidants and grime-fighting city combatants. Where scientists have seen a hole in the ozone layer, beauty companies have seen an opening in the cosmetic market. Spotting city skin is easy, pardon the pun. It’s dull and congested with blocked pores and dehydrated with patches of dryness. Stress has depleted the skin of nutrients and it’s been over-exposed to late nights, alcohol, tobacco and other stimulants. It’s choked with smoke and ragged thanks to air-conditioning and other major contributors to poor skin. However, by protecting ourselves from ultraviolet radiation and photo-ageing by using the correct formulations and the most effective method to…

Fear not – it’s not quite as dire as it sounds. There are several simple things you can do to equalise the effects of city living on your skin. First up, your epidermis will thank you every day for a basic twice-daily skincare routine. Get skin in tip-top condition by cleansing, toning and moisturising every morning before applying makeup (it should go without saying that falling asleep with your makeup on is a no-no). Exfoliation to slough away dead cells and brighten the complexion can be done at home, or with micro-dermabrasion or a peel at a salon to remove surface debris. Improving the skin’s resistance to pollution is the name of the game. Use sun protection and a moisturiser rich with ingredients to improve the skin’s surface strength. Cosmetics are often…

pollution solutions

Just think of a sliced apple turning brown to visualise the urban impact of oxidisation on your skin. Research is increasingly pointing the blame for ageing and illness towards oxidative cell damage caused by the environment. Here is where antioxidants step in to defend the skin, providing it with a fighting chance of repairing existing damage and defending itself against future ageing. Antioxidants are compounds that counteract the damaging effects of free radicals on cell structures, as well as cellular DNA. Free radicals accelerate the ageing process and are the result of oxygen molecules being oxidised; but they can also be created by exposure to various environmental factors, smoking and UV radiation. They are unstable cells that, if left unchecked, can compromise your health and potentially lead to cancer. When pollution damages…

MASCARA It’s the one beauty staple no girl can live without, yet the next generation of mascara is anything but basic. Employing the best in lash lengthening, volumising and growth technologies, these innovative products will work a treat for anyone who’s not quite ready to commit to a more durable form of lash enhancement. FAKE IT Party up with fake lashes. They’re flirty and playful and no amount of mascara can create the same drama. LINERS An easy way to glam up a bare eye is to intensify your look with eyeliner. If a smouldering look is what you’re after, use an eyeliner pencil around the entire eye and on the inner rim. For a quick smokey look, smudge it off using a crease/smudge brush. For more of a clean, strong line, create a winged…
