SOS Pollution on My Skin

SOS contaminación en mi piel

Today we all know what the main and basic care routines are to have healthy and beautiful skin.

A cleansing routine and specific treatments according to the needs of our skin. A balanced and healthy diet. Respecting sleep hours is one of the most beneficial habits for our overall health, and of course, not neglecting physical exercise.

But we have all done the cotton test when we get home, and even though we're not wearing makeup, the cotton doesn't come out clean.

The skin is exposed daily to external aggressors that we cannot avoid, such as pollution, free radicals, smoke, chemicals, vehicle emissions, heavy metals, which leave their mark on our skin, causing undesirable manifestations.

The heavy metals emitted persist for hundreds of years in the environment without degrading. The body exposed to them will accumulate them, and this can affect the skin's barrier function.

All these exposomes cause oxidative stress on our skin, leading to premature wrinkles, dehydration, lack of radiance, presence of bacterial growth, and increased sensitivity.

Here are three solutions that are within our reach:

- Never forget about sun protection throughout the year, as it helps create a protective barrier against free radicals. At Maystar, you can find two lines of sunscreens: Sun supreme care daily protection and Sun supreme care treatment. Choose the one that suits your needs best.

- Treat yourself to detoxifying spa treatments with one of the key ingredients to address toxins: the well-known activated charcoal. You can find it in single-use alginate mask format for home use in the Starmask line.

- Boost the skin's defense mechanism with intensive probiotic treatments. In our Starboost line, you can find Starbio: a box of ten ampoules filled with a concentrated cocktail of probiotics. By using it consistently, you can balance the microbiota of your skin.

And, of course, don't forget to take care of your diet, including antioxidant-rich foods that help neutralize overall oxidative stress.
