Poor air conditions directly link to the age and quality of our skin. Not only that, it can also wreak havoc our complexion as it causes oxidative stress to our skin. And let us not even get started on the fact that it can damage our DNA and initiate untimely wrinkles and skin cancer. We are aware that the deleterious effects of the polluted environment are not limited to our skin but entire body, inside out. When the pollution increases so much so that the schools are shut, doctors are advising everyone to stay indoors, and eye and skin irritation is a common deal, you know the alarm is ringing.
Since neither can we stay indoors as it isn't pragmatic nor can we leave the city, it’s best to turn to products that claim to combat soot, acid and smoke.
While morning and night cleansing routines are already part of our regime, we also need antioxidant-rich products for our defense. Here are a few beauty buys that’ll help us keep that bad air at bay.
