THE STRESSES AND PRESSURES OF URBAN LIVING
Do we live in an era of the fomo? The stresses and pressure of urban living, chemical toxicity both in our diet and skincare can take a toll on our skin. Our skin is a delicate, sensitive yet strong and resilient protective cover and a barometer of what is going on, on the inside too. You may be genetically predisposed to this skin type. Or skin can become sensitive, irritated, and rosacea-prone for a myriad of reasons - overuse of peels and treatments, chemically-laden skincare and sunscreen, pollution, hard water, harsh sun exposure, food and lifestyle choices. If you have intolerant, rosaceous, allergy-prone or sensitive skin, it will naturally react to external irritants quickly and easily. Symptoms can range from itching, tingling, burning, tightness, flushing and redness.
