Beyond our skincare routine and diet, there are many factors that play a role in the overall health of our skin. In fact, the environment we live in is important to the health and appearance of our skin. Exposure to the sun, high heat, harsh winters, and air pollution can bring new challenges to our skin. Air pollution, in particular, can cause a number of concerns as the particles, smoke, dust, chemicals, and smog floating in the air can be absorbed into the skin through the pores and deplete the skin's overall health.

One of the major effects of overexposure to this pollution is the hyperpigmentation it causes or worsens on the skin. Hyperpigmentation is the result of the skin producing excess melanin, the pigment that gives skin its color and appears as spots or patches on the skin that are darker than the surrounding areas. Air pollution, especially smog and free radicals, causes inflammation and irritation when in contact with the skin while also depleting it of the vitamins and nutrients it needs to be healthy. These factors damage and weaken the barrier of the skin, leading to sensitivity, dehydration, hyperpigmentation, and breakouts.

To help protect your skin from these environmental factors, it’s important to use products that are rich in antioxidants, among other ingredients, that help maintain and restore the skin's natural biome. The Love Times Infinity Peach Moisturizer is made with purpose, packed with powerhouse clean ingredients and ayurvedic blends designed to protect your skin from environmental stressors while boosting your skin's immunity. Intentionally crafted with niacinamide, plant-derived squalene, Centella Asiatica, and hyaluronic acid, this moisturizer soothes, hydrates, and nourishes your skin.

This combination helps to fight free radicals, calm inflammation, and nourish and hydrate the skin to help restore optimal skin health. Our superfood peach extract and ayurvedic neem and turmeric are rich in vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants to foster healthier and happier skin. Consistent use of our Love Times Infinity Peach Moisturizer will help reduce the appearance of dark spots, minimize pores, and brighten dull-looking skin so you can put your best face forward.
