5. Apply SPF

No daily skincare routine is complete without sunscreen. Always apply sunscreen to protect your skin from the harmful rays of the sun. Even if you're lounging in a sunspot in the house, you still need it. Try our Skin Defence that has an SPF 50+ and helps protect skin from indoor and outdoor pollution.

How Edelweiss Protects Your Skin

The Edelweiss Skincare range harnesses the power of the rare Edelweiss plant, known for its resilience in harsh mountainous environments. The formulations now contain more than double the concentration of this plant, utilizing both its stem cells and potent antioxidants to fortify the skin's natural defenses. By incorporating rice di- and tri-peptides, these products actively enhance the skin's barrier function, resulting in a complexion that looks and feels stronger, smoother, plumper, fresher, and bouncier.

Research has shown that Edelweiss extract is up to 2 times more effective in protecting the skin from pollution compared to retinol, making it a powerhouse ingredient in combating environmental stressors. With indoor and outdoor pollution protection properties, the Edelweiss Skincare range defends the skin against the oxidative stress caused by pollutants like gases and dust, ensuring that your skin remains radiant and healthy
