Protecting Your Skin From Pollution

Protecting Your Skin From Pollution

Living in the city has its perks, but it can also be doing damage to your skin! You should always take care of your skin, but when you live in an urban area it is especially important due to the pollution and bacteria you encounter in your day to day activities. Follow these tips to keep your skin healthy!

Cleanse Your Skin Daily

This may seem like a no-brainer but it is essential that you wash your face at least once a day with a gentle but effective cleanser. This will eliminate any dirt or debris from your pores, and keep oil in check. You should also be removing your makeup before going to bed each night, as makeup can become trapped in your pores as well, which will lead to breakouts.


Get a Chemical Peel

Treating yourself to a chemical peel every once in awhile is a great way to keep your skin looking and feeling refreshed and clean. Chemical peels use a combination of exfoliative agents to prevent and correct your skin concerns like acne, wrinkles, and hyperpigmentation. A chemical peel will help you achieve a smoother and more youthful-looking complexion!


Use Antioxidants

Pollutants like smog put oxidative stress on your skin. This type of stress can lead to premature lines, wrinkles, and discoloration, according to the Journal of Signal Transduction. That is where antioxidants come in! When using antioxidants from both dietary and topically applied skin care products it helps to neutralize the free radicals that are causing oxidative stress. Another good thing about antioxidants? They can also provide some protection from sun damage caused by UV rays, another way to fight premature wrinkles and other signs of aging.
