Air pollution, beyond its harmful consequences it has on the environment, our quality of life, and our health, has become one of the most pressing environmental challenges of our time, including its significant impact on our skin. As air pollution has become an increasingly present reality in our lives, learning to defend our skin has become essential. Pollutant particles in the air, such as vehicle exhaust and other chemicals, can damage our epidermis in various ways and create a range of skin problems, including premature aging, inflammation, acne, hyperpigmentation, and dehydration. If not adequately and daily treated, these issues can exacerbate skin irritation. Therefore, in this article, we will reveal 5 anti-pollution products ideal for protecting the dermis and shielding it from damage caused by environmental stress, using specific preventive measures and tailor-made ingredients to protect it.
