Did you know that 80% of skin aging is caused by internal and external aggressors we face each day? Only 20% of skin aging is genetics, which means you can improve your skin with the right routine. Everyday our skin is attacked by exposome factors, like pollution, stress, fatigue, UV damage, and so much more. Think about everything your skin faces from the time you leave home, to the time you get to the office. You wake up tired, travel through a polluted city, face environmental damage from UV rays and temperature changes.
