Essentially, the particles in pollution can penetrate into the skin and weaken it by disrupting the bonds between cells and the lipid levels in our skin. These are what form our natural protective barrier on the skin, so it leave skin more prone to damage and inflammation, breaking down collagen and triggering pigmentation.
These discoveries mean that pollution should be as much of a concern as UV rays in your skincare regime, especially if you live or work in a big city. Pollution will otherwise contribute to premature ageing, leaving skin looking dull and uneven.
This is where skincare developments like the REN Flash Defence Anti-Pollution Mist come in, creating a barrier that prevents pollution penetrating the skin.
How does it work?
The Flash Defence Anti-Pollution Mist has been created with ingredients that help to both shield the skin from damaging particles and to fight the damaging oxidation process that these particles cause. It does this in 4 main ways:
- Biosaccaride Gum creates an invisible barrier on the skin that helps shield and protect the skin.
- Zinc and Manganese Amino Acids attach onto destabilising free-radicals, helping to minimize damage to the bonds in the skin.
- Quercetin is a powerful antioxidant that helps encourage skin repair.
- Alfa-glucan helps support skin cells, increasing their longevity and detoxifying them.
So, by just spritzing the mist over your face, you can give your skin these 4 layers of defence from pollution.
The formula itself is totally undetectable; it doesn’t feel sticky or leave any visible film. It is perfect as a setting spray for makeup and it can be topped up any time you want during the day. Just pop it in your bag and you can keep your skin protected on the go. It is powerful skincare that works perfectly with your everyday routine!
