5 ingredients in anti-pollution products

With pollution rates across the country on the rise, it’s not just the health of our lungs that’s suffering. Our skin is also taking a hit from the many pollutants that surround us. 

But why does pollution have such an adverse effect? Well, when the skin is exposed to pollutants, free radicals are produced on the skin’s surface. After a while, the level of free radicals on the skin becomes too high for the skin’s natural defense mechanisms to cope with, and oxidative stress occurs. This leads to signs of premature aging, such as fine lines, wrinkles, and hyperpigmentation.
