So you’ve heard about how UVA/UVB rays and blue light can harm your skin but did you know pollution is another environmental aggressor known to cause damage to the skin barrier?
HOW DOES POLLUTION AFFECT MY SKIN?
Pollution is hard to escape, especially in built up areas such as cities and *studies show those that live in urban areas have skin that is up to 10 percent older* - need to find a reliable source for this.
Pollution is formed from particles of dust, industrial gasses, smoke and smog which form free radicals that break down our skin’s barrier function causing premature aging, wrinkles, sensitivity and skin pigmentation.
HOW CAN I PROTECT MY SKIN AGAINST POLLUTION?
Invest in skincare, featuring antioxidants such as Vitamin C which help combat damage caused by free radical particles found in pollution. Our primer, serum and face moisturisers are all enriched with Vitamin C, providing pollution protection as well as keeping skin bright and radiant.
We recommend double cleansing at night with a balm or oil cleanser to remove makeup, environmental toxins and dirt, followed by a milk or gel cleanser to thoroughly clean and cleanse the skin. Check out the ‘Best Best Anti-Pollution Cleansers That Will Help Remove Impurities On Skin’.
Using SPF daily will improve skin health as well as protecting against harmful UVA/UVB rays which cause premature aging and pigmentation which can be further irritated by daily aggressors such as pollution.
