Daily pollution (think traffic fumes or smog) contributes to oxidative stress. Basically, this stress is a disturbance in the balance between the body’s production of free radicals and antioxidant defenses. And this imbalance can cause visible skin damage.
The good news is that you can help shield your skin from the damaging effects of pollution. How? Through a skincare routine to help repair and protect skin from environmental stress.
How can I help protect my skin against pollution?
No matter how careful you are, pollution is a part of daily life. So what can you do? Well, your skin's moisture barrier is made up of oils (or lipids) that help bind cells together, boosting your skin's ability to protect itself from pollution.
So, turn to powerful moisturizers to help keep your skin barrier healthy. You can also use innovative products like Mineral Brush that help protect skin from pollution damage throughout the day.
Best of all? It’s easy to use. Try it out in eye creams, serums, and moisturizers.
What makes a skincare product anti-pollution?
Look for ingredients inside your skincare products that help shield skin from the effects of pollution. For example, Mineral Brush contains Benzylidene dimethoxydimethylindanone to help provide protection against free radical pollution damage.
Another key ingredient? Antioxidants. Try an antioxidant serum for protective and corrective care. It can help your skin recover more quickly from pollution and revive dull skin.
