Living in NYC, many factors, including air pollution, subway air, humidity and air conditioning can affect the condition of your skin. Here are some helpful tips to keep you and your skin looking and feeling your best while living, working, or traveling in New York City.

1.    Minimize Chlorine Exposure: In large quantities, chlorine can cause agitation to the skin and lungs. Remember to shower with cool water to avoid chlorine from seeping into your skin and stripping away natural oils, which can cause dryness and wrinkling.

2.    Block out Pollution: Always hydrate your skin with a good moisturizer to create a barrier between pollutants and UV rays. We suggest using our Rejuvenating Day Lotion SPF.

3.    8 Glasses a Day: Make it a point to drink 8 glasses of water a day to generate cell growth, elasticity, circulation, and to minimize dark circles under the eyes. Try filtered or mineral water to protect your body and skin from chlorine and other toxins.
