Pollution is coming after your skin and you can tell

We all know the perils of pollution on our skin and try to do everything in our power to protect skin from pollution. Our skin is exposed to internal and external forms of pollution. The different types of pollution can spoil the radiance of your complexion and jeopardise your skin's youthful glow. Pollution from outside is caused by the following factors: atmospheric pollutants, UV rays and tobacco. Internal pollution is something we often forget about, but we spend 80% of our time in confined spaces where the air is 10 to 20 times more polluted than outside. All this pollution combined, causes a lot of skin damage. Due to this, it is important to protect skin from pollution and use anti pollution skincare.

Why should I use anti pollution skincare?

The permanent aggressors and pollutants directly attack the skin's hydrolipidic film, intercellular cement and cellular membrane. Your skin employs different defence systems when faced with these external and internal aggressors that oxidise it. And when these systems are overwhelmed, it sometimes struggles to repair itself. Pollution increases the inflammation and irritation that can affect your skin. This is when small changes in your skin can start to appear and become noticeable. Your face looks lifeless, like it's been suffocated. Its uneven complexion draws attention to any redness, dilated pores and small imperfections. In short, your skin starts to look dull and older. The regular use of anti pollution skincare helps you repair your skin and reduce the appearance of skin damage.
