Living the city lifestyle comes with a price...and could cost you big time!

The harmful truth about living in a bustling city (like New York) is that eventually, your skin may end up paying the real price for your city girl fun.

Soot, dirt, smoke and other pollutants in the air can lead to aging skin. While cleansing your face morning and night is one of the surest ways to protect your epidermis, there may also be a little added guard you’ll need down the line.

The best bet: start guarding your skin ASAP. Below are some great products for the protection.
