Anti-Pollution skin care is on the rise with brands like Neutrogena already in that space with products like the Neutrogena Hydro Boost City Shield so today I want to share my beauty picks from German skincare brand, Lavera whose skincare products are not only environmentally friendly but also protects skin from pollution.
The hero ingredient used by Lavera is Algae – one of oldest plants in the world.
Algae is a real chameleon and has adapted to the different climate conditions in the depths of the sea over the centuries. It is able to store many nutrients and has skin-protecting and anti-inflammatory properties. Algae is also able to transport ingredients into the deeper skin layers, because it has a similar structure to the blood plasma in our bodies. Furthermore, algae strengthens the natural immune system of our skin and provides skin with energy.
Sounds like Algae is a miracle ingredient, let’s see below how it helps transform the skin.My first pick is this Lavera Hydro Effect Serum with Anti-Pollution Complex.
Our skin is in direct contact with our surroundings and negative environmental impacts don’t just damage our health, they also harm our largest organ – skin. Air pollution causes skin to age 10% more quickly so this has prompted Lavera to take inspiration from plants like Alga who have always adapted to changing climate conditions and thanks to its high concentration of nutrients is a great all-rounder and unbeatable when it comes to fighting free radicals.The new Hydro Effect Serum with Anti-Pollution Complex protects skin from negative environmental impacts with the help of proteins contained in algae. The highly concentrated but light formulation is quickly absorbed and leaves skin feeling soft. Thanks to its vegan formulation with natural hyaluronic acid, organic aloe vera and moisturising organic saccharides, the skin’s moisture level is instantly replenished. This serum is an Anti-Pollution Complex made up of natural anti-oxidants and organic algae which works on three levels: it protects skin cells from negative environmental impacts, fights free radicals and prevents premature skin ageing.
I love hard working skincare products that can multitask so this one is right in my wheelhouse; simply apply to skin in the morning after cleansing and gently massage in. The result is moisture, protection and radiant complexion all day long. It’s suitable for all skin types.
Next on my list is this Lavera Cleansing Milk 2 in 1 which is a natural and mild cleansing milk with organic moisturising that gently cleanse and remove make up, even around the delicate eye area, without stripping the skin of its natural oils. The skin feels real soft after cleansing thanks to additional moisturising agents of jojoba and shea butter.Next is this Lavera Organic All-Round Moisturising Cream. Lavera Basis Sensitive Organic All-Round Cream is an ultra-rich moisturiser recommended for very dry skin and extremely beneficial for all skin types during cold winter weather. The all round cream comes in a handy tin containing all natural and organic ingredients to moisturise every part of the face and body, particular the drier areas like heels, elbows and knees.The cream contains organic nourishing and moisturising ingredients – organic shea butter and organic almond to protect, lock in moisture and care for skin.In my opinion, I left the best for last. Say hello to a beauty sleep in a jar. Wake up looking fresh every morning with the New Lavera Re-energising Sleeping Cream.
This sleeping cream is packed full of moisturising ingredients to keep the skin supple and elastic. It contains organic nourishing almond and olive oils to keep facial skin smooth and fresh, organic grape and vitamin E to help slow the ageing process for a youthful appearance.As we sleep, the skin repairs itself and is able to easily and effectively absorb the active ingredients from this organic night cream. The ingredients in this Re-energising Sleeping Cream also helps repair the damage caused by pollution from the environment during the day, aids cell regeneration and the skin rejuvenates, resulting in a revitalised, radiant and beautiful looking skin come morning. Lavera have an extensive skincare ranges that are all environmentally friendly and solves many skincare issues so I’ll recommend checking their website.
