Our skin is assaulted every day by pollution. Allergies, acne, spots or premature wrinkles are part of the many consequences of this exposure to pollution. But good news: it is easy to protect your skin from pollution. Find out in this article 3 things to do to give brightness and freshness to your skin!
What are the effects of pollution on your skin?
Whether we live in town or in the countryside, our skin is constantly assaulted by polluting agents in the air. One of the first consequences of such irritation is that our skin gets irritable, more sensitive and intolerant. It comes from the fact that the lipids, which are on the surface of the skin, are affected. In the same way, the quality of the secreted sebum is modified, which lead to blackheads. With these constant attacks, the skin gets drier.
Di you know ? 90 % of the signs of cutaneous ageing are to be imputed to the pollution and to the sun.
How to protect your skin from pollution?
Here are 3 things to do to protect your skin from pollution on a daily basis:
- 1/ Cleanse your skin: remove fine particles from the skin surface:
Start with a gentle cleaning of your skin to get rid of the fine particles that were accumulated on the skin’s surface during the day. The most sensitive skin can choose a micellar water that removes impurities in a gentle way. It’s better to avoid aggressive skin care such as facial scrub or peelings because the skin gets more sensitive with pollution.
2/ Protect your skin:
It’s key to protect your skin. You can, for instance, use a moisturiser that captures fine particles on the skin’s surface in order to prevent skin irritations. Don’t forget to use sun cream as the sun – in particular UV rays and UVA rays- eases the aggression of your skin by pollutants.
- 3/ Moisturize your skin:
