It is thought that 92% of the world’s population lives in places where air pollution levels exceed the limits set by the World Health Organization. There is no doubt that the world we live in now is more polluted and we are exposed to more environmental stressors than ever before.
Exposure to pollution and environmental stressors has now clearly been linked to accelerated skin ageing and it is becoming more important to provide protection for your skin.
Air pollution can affect your skin topically and the fine particulate matter (what is in the air) can actually penetrate through pores and cause cellular damage including fine lines, inflammation and sensitivity.
Air pollution is not the only environmental stressor to contribute to accelerated ageing. Stressors such as UV radiation, hot and cold weather, air-conditioning, electronic equipment use, stress & fatigue and travelling all cause oxidative stress for your skin.
Oxidative stress can be used by an overload of free radicals (from pollution and environmental stressors) combined with not enough antioxidants to fight them. It can also lead to a breakdown in collagen and the skins lipid layer, this can result in premature signs of ageing, inflammation and loss of hydration.
We would like to introduce to you 3 anti-pollution products to defend you against your daily environmental stressors.
The Herb Farm Protecting Skin Defend Mist is a light 100% natural mist with powerful ingredients to give invisible protection against the ageing effects of environmental pollutants and stressors.

Bor?aline® Protect is scientifically proven to inhibit free radicals and stimulate natural collagen production to prevent signs of ageing.
