What pollution is doing to your skin

...And how to protect it

Life in the city: the hustle and bustle of people and traffic. It’s fast paced and ever-changing, and playing havoc on your skin.

Environmental aggressors such as traffic fumes, cigarette smoke and UV light can leave your skin looking dull and more susceptible to irritation, rashes, eczema and breakouts, as well as leading to premature ageing.

How does this happen? Highly unstable molecules called free radicals, which are found in air pollution and UV light, can damage the skin’s natural protective barrier. As this barrier is weakened, the primary triggers of ageing and skin irritation move in, accelerating the formation of fine lines and wrinkles, brown spots, redness and rashes.

Hero ingredients including antioxidants, peptides and vitamins can help neutralise this free radical damage, protecting and strengthening your skin, and leaving it looking full of vitality.

At DUOLAB, we’ve harnessed the antioxidant power of vitamin E in our Melting Cream and Light Cream Moisturising Bases to protect your skin against free radical damage and pollution.

Used every day in combination with one of our Targeted Concentrates, they help strengthen the skin and balance its microbiome, leaving it looking healthy and full of radiance.
