Age Spots

Recent studies show that living in an urban area with a high concentration of traffic-related air pollution (particulate matter or PM10 concentrations) is linked to a 20% increase in facial pigmentation spots, also known as age spots. Alongside UV exposure, particulate matter exposure is quickly becoming recognised as a significant extrinsic contributor to premature ageing.

So what can you do about this?

a) Cleanse your skin day and night to remove pollution from your skin. Particulate matter contains free radicals that need to be neutralised with a cleanser that is high in antioxidants, such as griffin+row Cleanse.

b) Moisturise to create a barrier against pollution, such as with griffin+row Nourish, which is also rich in antioxidants.
