Anti-pollution skincare can be practiced at home and at your esthetician’s office in different ways. Applying an anti-pollution mask (hello, Vitamin C!) after washing your face or scheduling a specialty anti-pollution facial with a professional are great first steps in implementing new products into your routine.
So what are some of the latest anti-pollution skincare products? What are some of their benefits? How do you use them?
Masks and Serums
As we mentioned earlier, Vitamin C is an excellent source of nutrients for your skin because naturally-acidic properties accelerate healing and collagen production. You can often find this ingredient in serum form, which makes it a perfect topical application after washing your face. If you’re a person that prefers masks over serums, anti-pollution face masks are the perfect option for you! Most of these masks have hydrating properties, which helps your skin to look less dull-- a suspected side effect of pollution.
If you’re curious about anti-pollution skincare and aren’t sure where to start, schedule a visit with your local esthetician to discuss which products and procedures are best for you. When it comes to professional-grade treatments, there are several specialty facials to choose from:
Whether you decide to practice skincare with the help of a professional or solely at home by yourself, choosing products with anti-pollutant qualities will help improve your skin in the short term, as well as the long term.
