Pollution is bad for more than just the environment. It’s also bad for your skin. The damage comes from particles so tiny they can get stuck in your pores.
According to a study published in 2018, your pores are bombarded by these micro-particles all the time. And, because they’re so small, they penetrate into the deeper layers of your epidermis. This particulate matter damages skin cells by creating free radicals, which cause skin laxity, hyperpigmentation, fine lines, inflammation, acne, and rosacea. In other words, pollution is leaving your skin looking clogged and gasping for air every day!
No matter what type of skin you have, oily or dry, using a pre-cleansing oil to remove foundation and waterproof mascara will make washing thoroughly much easier. This is one of the gentler methods of loosening and collecting makeup, debris, and impurities from your face.
Following up with a conditioning cleanser that doesn’t strip your skin of natural oils will keep your skin free of pore-clogging pollutants. This double-cleansing skin care routine will help ensure you have completely washed away any breakout instigating irritants, dirt, and cosmetics on your face and neck. Of course, a few times per week you can add a micro-exfoliation product and a boost of extra hydration to further help the skin recover from the daily environmental influences attacking the skin’s delicate surface.
A good bedtime skin cleansing regimen can be this simple, yet effective, if practiced on a regular basis. It also helps prepare your face for the rest of your skin care products. Skin care products with vitamins and antioxidants can help too! In fact, they’re the most effective way to reduce and prevent free-radical damage. While you can’t avoid the effects of pollution, Environ’s range of high-efficacy antioxidant formulations can help you protect your skin against it.
