As the days get warmer, bit by bit, so we become gradually more aware of the pollution. It’s not necessarily that it gets worse, but we’re outside more and when the mugginess of a hot day enters the picture, it feels extra-oppressive. Of course, you could escape by enjoying an hour or 90 minutes of gay massage in London, but you can’t stay there forever (more’s the pity). Eventually, you have to emerge outside and brave the chemicals and fumes once more. If it’s a day with slow traffic, all those exhaust pipes belching out their noxious fumes really do become intolerable.

How It Influences Us!

Earlier this year, the government’s air-quality index was raised to 10 – the highest possible level. In the first month of the year, the Brixton Road exceeded its annual air pollution limit. At the moment, the air-quality index is hitting 10 several times a year. It’s not good. Emissions and particles are coarsening the air we breathe and a lot of the dust is too tiny to be filtered out by the cilia (microscopic hairs) in our noses and throats. We’ve got no choice but to suck it up – quite literally. The days of the Great Smog in 1952 were wretched times we thought were well behind us, but the way things are going, they could return. However, we don’t have to resign ourselves to being utterly passive victims in this situation. As well as taking a break for gay massage, there are other steps we can implement to mitigate the impact of pollution on our minds and bodies. Here are two steps it’s worth considering as you set out into the city and face the filth.

Anti-pollution spray. The beauty industry has cottoned on to pollution and there’s now an array of these useful products in high street chemists the length and breadth of the capital. The best ones create a layer to make it harder for the pollution to get through your skin. The dirt in the air is potentially ageing, accelerating the appearance of wrinkles, so have your spray at the ready to keep your skin dewy and fresh. Or get one of our Tantric massages.

Bicycle mask. If you’re a cyclist, these are increasingly essential accessories. Think of all the times you’re in traffic behind a bus whose exhaust pipe is churning out litres of air-borne poison. How much better it is to be protected by a mask, making your airways less vulnerable to the evil fumes. You can even see all the dirt trapped in the mask’s filter at the end of your journey and you’ll begin to get an idea of the degree of protection it’s giving you.

These two measures are just the start. There are dozens more things you can do to keep pollution at bay, and we’ll apprise you of these in a future blog.

It’s a problem as old as time itself. Few of us can quite make peace with hair-loss. It feels like being stripped of youth, beauty and vitality.
