If you live in a big city you may have noticed how environmental pollution affects your skin, making the skin tone uneven, accelerating the aging process, increasing sebum production, etc.
Of course, there is a whole range of factors causing skin imperfections, including hormonal issues, environmental challenges, wrong diet, allergies and others. Many scientists, however, confirm that air pollution is a major contributing factor to skin conditions.
But let’s start by stating first of all that having acne is totally normal. Almost everyone has it (including the author of this text!) but it doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t take care of your skin.
To tackle the pollution factor, you need to be really disciplined when it comes to cleansing. Use a mild cleanser in the morning. Don’t scrub your face. Make sure you use a gentle cleanser like our new Glow Revival Cleansing Oil. It can be also used on the eyes and lips and does not need to be washed off with a foaming cleanser. In the evening, you need to get a deeper cleanse to remove any traces of pollutants. Clean out the skin from dirt and makeup, including waterproof makeup.
A cleanser will work better if used with Skin Perfector Tingle Serum, which helps to bolster the water-lipid barrier of the skin and eliminates the downside effects from the pollution in megacities. It protects the skin from the damaging effects of UV rays and pitted acne scars.
And don’t forget to include antioxidant-rich food in your diet and make sure you drink a lot of water. These simple yet very effective steps will make a big difference for your skin.
