Did you know that after the sun, it’s pollution that damages the skin causing to lose its luster and shine? Over the past few weeks, a thick layer of smog has engulfed the national capital causing the pollution rate to rise to hazardous levels which has made the air in Delhi awful. In addition, with every year the situation is getting severe precipitating a large number of health and skin problems. The smog and haze that you see every morning might be temporary but the filthy air and its impact is going to hang for months over the city. However, Delhi authorities are trying hard to tackle the problem but it will only make a small dent in the problem. So, not to mention, nowadays, UV rays and pollution are the skin’s biggest enemies. Just as we have sunscreens to protect our skin from the sun damage, we do have pollution savers too.
How pollution affects our skin?
Pollution is taking a big toll on our skin causing an increase in hyperpigmentation, uneven skin tone, skin inflammation, wrinkles, breakouts, acne, premature skin ageing, eczema and other severe issues. Pollutants present in the air sticks to our skin and clog the pores causing abnormalities in skin structure and function.
Are you scared of pollution now? Don’t worry, there are a number of antioxidant products for alleviating the effects of air pollution on the skin, furthermore, protecting the skin against dirt, bacteria, carbon particles and germs that are swirled into the air because of pollution.
What you should look for while buying an anti-pollution product?
