Air pollution is a fact of life, but you don't have to let them damage your skin.
Beware of air pollution: Airborne toxins cause the skin to age prematurely, especially on the face, neck, and hands. Smog, dirt, and dust can all come in contact with the sun's ultraviolet rays, creating free radicals that deplete oxygen in skin cells and hamper collagen production. These highly charged oxygen molecules are harmful to the skin and the body, attacking cells and damaging DNA. This can lead to wrinkles, rough patches, and acne, and give skin a dull, grey appearance. Long-term exposure can also cause skin allergies, eczema and blood vessel damage.
Antioxidant: If you live in a developed country, you can't completely avoid pollution, but there are ways to minimize its effects. Overexposure to UV radiation can cause wrinkles and even skin cancer.“You can protect yourself from UV damage with sunscreen, but sunscreens aren’t effective for pollution,” said Dr. Gilly Munavalli, medical director of Dermatology, Laser & Vein Specialists of the Carolinas in Charlotte, N.C. “The best thing we can do now applies antioxidants: vitamins C and E.”
To protect yourself, before sunscreen, apply Vitamin C serum on your face and neck--combat pollutants in the skin and air.
So beneficial antioxidants may already be part of your skincare routine.
Deeply cleansing: Subverting air toxins can be as simple washing your face with the right cleanser. Particulate matter, the tiny harmful particles in the air, attaches to the skin as you go about your day. But it isn’t immediately damaging.90% skin problems are caused by improper cleaning or not clean the skin thoroughly, so deeply cleansing skin is the basis of skin care. Neutriherbs bubble clay mask contains effective carbonated bubbles provides gently massaging properties to skin, clean the skin thoroughly.
Doctors say that a routine of antioxidants, cleansing and barrier repair is the best defense against air pollution.
Stay hydrated: One of the best defenses in the battle for healthy skin is also one of the most plentiful elements on Earth. Water hydrates the skin, generates cell growth, improves circulation, helps minimize dark circles under the eyes and improve skin's elasticity.
The pollutants we encounter every day may be largely inescapable, but there’s ample reason to be defensive in our skincare routine. Here are four anti-pollution skincare products that may help.
