'Anti-pollution' skincare seems to be the new thing at the moment. It's not something I've really given much thought to but living in London maybe I should! I'm giving the new REN anti-pollution mist a go in the hopes it'll help.
It has four 'lines of defence' against UV light and pollutants which generate free radicals which attack the skin. They make skin lose its radiance and look dull and tired - definitely not what I want!
So what's actually inside? Biosaccharide Gum shields skin with a protective barrer. Zinc and Manganese Amino Acids protect from oxidative stress. Quercetin boosts antioxidant capacity of cells, stimulating skin repair, whilst Alfa-glucan detoxifies.
There's a lot of science here and I'm not sure how effective it will be, but I definitely think all the exhaust fumes, smoke, etc in the air in the city cannot be good for your skin so why not give it a little help?
The NEW REN Flash Defence Anti-Pollution Mist is £24 for 60ml, available in March from SpaceNK.
