Did you know that our skin can get really dirty?
Every day we are exposed to smoke, smog, pollution, dirt, bacteria, oils and this can all come in contact with our skin through direct and indirect transfer.
Because of the environment our skin is exposed to, it is important to maintain clean healthy skin on a daily basis in order to achieve a clear complexion. This is where VivierSkin products can help.
