Her World Beauty Awards 2019 Winners: Anti-pollution Skincare
Face the city
Your typical skincare routine may seem to address every skin concern possible, but even the strictest of us fail to address the biggest irritant we face daily: pollution.
Not only does hopping on your commute taint your complexion faster than you cleanse it, pollution particles can also speed up the ageing process of your skin by penetrating to the epidermis and accelerating cellular deterioration and cause hyperpigmentation.
In fact, according to dermatology studies published over the past few years, a combination of UV rays, particulate matter, grime, and smog are responsible for 80 per cent of visible facial ageing signs, including wrinkles, hyperpigmentation and loss of skin elasticity.
Here are the best anti-pollution products (out of the hundreds of products) we tried out for the Her World Beauty Awards 2019 that will start building your skin barrier against pollution.
