You Need These Skincare Products to Fight Pollution

You Need These Skincare Products to Fight Pollution

If you live in a big city, the smog in the atmosphere will start to affect your skin. You need to get these skincare products to fight pollution now.

Depending on where you live, you may or may not experience a lot of smog.

If you're from Los Angeles, then you can't truly appreciate the views when you have to squint to see the buildings or mountains because the first thing you'll notice is the smog in the atmosphere-not the best sight for such a beautiful city. It's a constant reminder that there's a lot of pollution around us.

Pollution is so harmful that it damages the skin barriers function and breaks down the collagen in our skin. Collagen is the most abundant protein in our body, and it's the building block of our bones, skin, and muscles. It's found in blood vessels and teeth; it's basically the glue that holds everything together.

The dirt particles in the air can clog pores, and pollution is directly correlated to causing or irritating acne, eczema, and hives. Pollution is so damaging to the skin that it increases the risk of skin cancer, it can cause skin sensitivity, dries, and dulls out the skin and discolors it.

Scared yet? Well, there's more. Urban dust contains a combo of 224 toxic chemicals like polyaromatic hydrocarbons that come from oil, gasoline, trash, tobacco, and burning coal. Are you around cigarette smoke from time to time? If you are, I have bad news for you. Cigarette smoke consists of 6,000 harmful chemicals to the skin!

If you're freaking out, let me give you some good news; there are products developed to protect and repair the damage (or most of it) caused by pollution. Phew!

Look for products that have these ingredients:

Chicory root


Green tea


Activated charcoal

Vitamins A, C, and E

Ginkgo biloba

Sea salt minerals


Red algae
