A Guide to Anti-Pollution Skincare

Whether you live in a city or a village, our skin is all affected by what’s known as environmental aggressors, more specifically free radicals.

The effects include a loss of moisture, hyperpigmentation and slower collagen production. To prevent or reverse the damaged caused by pollution, experts advise using a combination of the best anti-pollution skincare formulas.
