Fight skin pollution with Clinique

When we think of skin protection we immediately think of sun protection and as a leading cause of skin damage and premature aging you can see why but what about protection from pollution too?



The top layer of your skin is made up of 5 layers called the epidermis which is responsible for cell regeneration and provides a barrier to the deeper layers. This barrier is not shield proof and sunburn is a great example to show how fragile the skin really is. Our skin is covered in tiny pores to allow excretion at the surface but this can also allow free-radicals to penetrate and attack causing damage.
Pollution factors are often neglected but should not be ignored. Pollution effects on the skin include, dryness, premature skin aging, rashes, acne and eczema.
Pollution particles (free-radicals) can sometimes be small enough to penetrate deeper layers of the epidermis and pollution from traffic is considered the most harmful and is not only linked to premature aging but also pigmentation of the skin. You may not be a smoker but smoke pollution is also damaging to your skins health and plays a part in hydration loss.

What can we do

Let's think of the skin as a sponge, without anything our sponge has hollows which is not only open to attack but also has no fullness and can look dry/dehydrated.
A full sponge starts with good cleansing, there is not point in layering up products onto dead skin cells.
Cleansing daily and exfoliating the skin twice a week will allow products to penetrate into the skins layers where they need to actually work and that’s where Clinique's new dramatically different hydrator jelly comes into play.

Clinique dramatically different hydrator jelly

Cliniques’ hydrator jelly is fast absorbing and leaves no sticky residue so is perfect to layer under your moisturiser. It will repair the skin's barrier to help lock in good and filter out the bad with Clinique's ‘clean Shield ™’ technology your skin is 87% less vulnerable to skin damaging pollution and day after day the skins condition improves to reveal healthy glowing skin.

After cleansing applying a layer of the new hydrator will plump our sponge (yes I'm back to the sponge) and create a perfect base for additional moisturisers or make-up.
