Mindfulness is a mind and body connection by being intensely aware of what you're sensing and feeling in the moment. Being the largest sensory organ in our body, skin mirrors a lot of our inner feelings and state of mind. A hectic urban lifestyle, constant distractions from digital devices and the need to constantly multi-task has become one of the main reasons of being in an “overwhelmed” state of mind. In order to reconnect and restore inner balance, skincare users are now opening up to skincare that gives them a sense of ‘time out’.
Prolonged exposure to high levels of pollution can cause alterations to the skin barrier forming process causing premature ageing as well as inflammatory skin conditions (such as atopic dermatitis and eczema).
Uncontrolled and prolonged exposure to blue light from the screens of our digital devices is known to hit deeper into the skin layers compared to UVA and UVB rays. This triggers free radical production that damages DNA in the skin cell which causes premature ageing.
