It is not exactly new information that exposure to the sun and pollution is harmful to your skin. Pollution causes micro-particles of dust and chemicals to enter your skin through the pores and cause damage on a cellular level. UV rays from the sun also cause damage to the collagen in your skin.

Protect your skin from the harmful effects of these two factors by arming yourself with these products. Give your skin all the help it needs so it remains firm and supple no matter the conditions outside. Here is what your skin needs to pollution-proof itself...

Charcoal Cleanser
 

Charcoal cleanser

Activated charcoal can absorb 1000 times its own weight in dirt, grime and other micro-particles that settle on your skin and in your pores. Use the Pond’s Pure White Deep Cleansing Facial Foam which helps you uncover your natural radiance by reaching deep into your pores and lifting away dirt and dust particles.

Antioxidant Serum
 

Antioxidant serum

The pollution causes micro-particles to enter your skin and from free-radicals. These free-radicals are highly unstable and cause the collagen in your skin to break down. Counteract the free-radicals by layering your skin with antioxidants. Serums rich in antioxidants are light on the skin and are absorbed easily. So invest in a serum that works for your skin type.

Moisturiser
 

Moisturiser

A good moisturiser will shield your skin from the harmful effects of pollution. It creates a barrier and protects your skin form harmful external factors. Exposure to pollution causes s dryness, and a good moisturiser like Pond’s Light Moisturiser Non-Oily Fresh Feel will counter-act that.

Sunscreen
 

Sunscreen

We have said this many times, and we still feel it’s not enough. Sunscreen is the barrier between the layer of skin care products and the layer of makeup products. So it does not allow oil and other debris from the makeup to seep into your pores as much. It also acts like a shield over your skin that does not allow the UV rays of the sun to reach your skin. Use the Lakmé Sun Expert Ultra Matte Gel Sunscreen SPF 50 Pa+++ which offers a non-sticky, matte gel finish that is light on your skin.
