Puraglow skin care products counter the invisible attack pollutants make on your immune system protecting you from the effects of emissions, poisons and contaminants that dull your hair and may cause hyper-pigmentation of your skin and stipple your complexion with fine lines.
The Puraglow range includes products which combine to both prevent skin damage caused by pollution and rectify the skin damage pollution has caused.
Climate change is causing a steady increase in airborne pollutants and many people in large Asian cities check pollution levels on a daily basis—with good reason: Ozone in smog speeds up skin ageing by depleting Vitamin E levels, interfering with natural healing processes and causing oxidative stress. Smog is reemerging as a problem in the west too with cities across the world including London, Paris, Rome, Berlin, Madrid, Los Angeles and New York all reporting their highest pollution levels for years.
People exposed to pollution can experience a higher sebum secretion rate, decreased skin pH levels and higher levels of lactic acid. Vitamin E and Squalene are vital antioxidants and their depletion results in noticeably dry, dull and unhealthy skin.
All of us are exposed to pollution, whether we live in or close to large metropolitan areas or suffer a reaction to hydrocarbons or agricultural sprays. Even remote areas can suffer as pollution is a global problem as well as a local one. According to researchers at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory and the California Institute of Technology pollution from China affects cloud development in the North Pacific and strengthens extratropical cyclones which move pollutants around the world.
“The skin is our largest organ in the body, and it’s your first barrier to environmental allergens and airborne pollution,” explains Aisha Sethi, M.D., associate professor of dermatology and infectious diseases at the University of Chicago. “There is clear data that airborne particulate matter has an association with more dark spots on your skin and increases in the number of wrinkles.”
Founder Lesley Wall has specifically designed Puraglow products to counteract pollutants naturally; our skincare products are high in antioxidants and have a balancing effect on the oil levels of the skin, gently cleansing and protecting and moisturising while fighting the direct effects of pollutants by normalising your skin’s natural pH.
