It’s a fact: dirty air is a crisis. Cellular intoxicators are on the rise, and our clients’ skin is becoming more and more reactive to the environment. This excessively polluted, toxic air has a great impact on human health and our skin. It’s on the minds of our clients, so it’s time to become a pollution expert in the treatment room. Here are the latest stats.
