Those of us who live in a city are taking in more and more pollution. Pollution is made up of free radicals, which are released into the air as a by-product of combustion. Exhaust, smoke, and smog can actually penetrate the epidermis causing oxidative stress, pre-mature ageing, and, in worst-case scenarios, skin cancers.
Pollution also causes the skin’s lipid barrier to break down leading to inflammation, dehydration, loss of collagen, and reduction in cell turnover. Solar UV rays, car emissions, cigarette smoke, and even the blue light from our phones and computers bombard our daily lives. These drastically effect the health of our skin.

These are our top recommendations for fighting back against exposure to pollution, UV, and blue light radiation:
