Air pollution caused by industry, vehicle fumes, cigarette smoke and other sources together with solar radiation, especially the ultra violet (UV) ranges, is known to have a detrimental effect on skin health. Environmental pollutants can drastically alter the composition of the skin, influencing surface barrier function, increasing Trans Epidermal Water Loss, and compromising skin hydration.
Pollutants are highly diverse, ranging from airborne components such as ozone, carbon monoxide and oxides of nitrogen and sulphur, to industrial residues such as polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, nanoparticles and heavy metals, that damage the skin by different mechanisms, resulting in skin dryness, loss of firmness, dark spots, uneven skin tone, fine lines and wrinkles, aggravation of acne and inflammation.
md:complex Anti-Pollution SkinProtect Shield combines different multi-functional actives. These actives counter the impact of pollution by a variety of mechanisms, in a global strategy to repair and protect the skin from external damage.
This cocktail contains a combination of powerful antioxidant, protective, repairing and regenerating ingredients. Acting synergistically, they stimulate the natural skin cells’ repair mechanisms, shielding the skin from free radicals and external aggressors, to preserve a smooth, even and glowing complexion.
md:complex Anti-Pollution SkinProtect Shield strengthens and restores skin barrier integrity and stratum corneum cohesion, protecting skin cells from the penetration of pollutants and leading to skin that is more resistant to environmental stressors. Enhancing cell regeneration and the skin´s natural healing processes, it renders the skin firm, tight and revitalised, and allows for the rapid recovery of the luminosity, hydration, smoothness and firmness lost over time from the continuous exposure to environmental stressors. It also gives protection from the negative effects of exposure to blue light, both from sunlight and the screens of digital devices, which promotes premature skin ageing.
