Flash Defence Anti-Pollution Mist, £24, REN

As those of you who’ve visited or live in busy cities can attest it can sometimes feel a little difficult to breathe, particularly within polluted areas. Our skin feels the same, with the surface struggling to breathe when covered in pollution. As a result your skin cells can get into a state of ‘oxidative stress,’ with polluted skin loosing its natural glow and radiance.

Pollution covers a vast array of pollutants from UV light to cigarette smoke and exhaust fumes. Ren, in their Solution to Skin Pollution post describe these as ‘unstable atoms.’ Which can land on the surface of your skin, pairing with other molecules to ‘scavenge your skin,’ damaging the natural protective barrier.

Designed to be seamlessly incorporated into your daily skincare routine liberally spritz the Flash Defence Anti-Pollution Mist across your face, neck and décolleté ahead of exposure to city pollutants as a last step in your makeup routine – we’ve discovered that it doubles really well as a setting mist.

Available to shop online (click here) or instore at Marks & Spencer Ren’s Flash Defence Anti-Pollution Mist at just £24. Providing an affordable way to prevent damage from occurring, reviving and rehydrating skin as you go.
