Our 5 tips to protect your skin from pollution

Air pollution, exhaust fumes and cigarette smoke are the main pollutants that pose a real danger to our health, and in particular that of our skin. As with UV rays, pollution will attack the epidermis because of the free radicals it generates. These will disrupt the skin barrier, making our skin unstable and more prone to certain skin disorders such as the more rapid appearance of wrinkles, dilation of pores, the appearance of pigment spots, redness, itching or even darkening. of the complexion.

However, faced with these effects, there are simple actions to adopt daily to limit the harmful effects of pollution on your skin. We'll reveal to you right away our 5 best tips for protecting it.

Clean your skin very regularly

Urban life disrupts the skin's natural protective barrier, whether normal, combination, oily or dry, which can cause damage in the short term, such as the appearance of imperfections for example, but also in the long term.

Cleansing your skin regularly is essential to eliminate all polluting agents and impurities that have accumulated on the surface of the skin and deep down throughout the day. Before protecting the skin, it is also important to remove the day cream on which the fine particles of pollution have attached themselves.

Every evening, it is therefore advisable to double cleanse your face . This consists first of all in the use of a make-up removing oil, such as Seasonly, the texture of which is the most effective in dissolving all fatty substances, in particular sebum extracts, the production of which has accelerated under the effect of pollution that can cause inflammatory acne. Then, completing this cleansing with a cleansing jelly allows you to complete the cleansing of the skin without damaging it while helping the skin to restore its skin barrier.

Use antioxidant products

Antioxidants, such as vitamin C, vitamin E and green tea, act as protective shields for our skin by neutralizing harmful free radicals generated by pollution. By reducing inflammation, promoting cellular repair and strengthening the skin barrier, these natural compounds play an essential role in preserving our skin against external aggressions.

So, you can integrate boosters rich in vitamin C into your routine, for example, such as our Radiance Booster which is a concentrate of vitamin C which will awaken the natural radiance of your skin by fighting against the free radicals that cause complexion. dull. All you need to do is mix a few drops of our Radiance Booster with your day cream to personalize your routine. Also, you can use a serum rich in vitamin C or vitamin E to strengthen the skin's natural defense system and limit its reactivity.

Moisturize your skin deeply

Hydrating the skin is a powerful weapon to fight against the aggressions of pollution. Indeed, by maintaining adequate hydration, our skin develops a natural protective barrier, essential to counter the harmful effects of fine particles and atmospheric contaminants. Well-hydrated skin is more resistant to damage, more capable of regenerating itself and preventing the infiltration of pollutants. Additionally, hydration helps prevent dehydration, a common effect of exposure to pollution, thereby preserving the suppleness and radiance of our skin.

We then advise you to use a cream adapted to your skin type, such as our fluid cream for normal to combination skin who wish to have more radiance while maintaining a good level of hydration and good suppleness. For dry skin, opt for our rich cream whose enveloping texture will deeply hydrate the skin by plumping it.

Integrate sun protection into your routine

In our daily lives, our skin is constantly exposed to a double threat: air pollution and the sun's UV rays. These two factors can cause serious damage to our skin, such as premature aging or loss of suppleness.

Faced with this, applying sun protection to your face every day is an effective solution to prevent skin oxidation, the effects of which are increased tenfold by UV rays. Indeed, fine particles present in the air can penetrate the layers of the skin, thus accelerating the aging process and increasing the risk of skin problems. When combining this exposure with UV rays, the damage can be even more serious.

Sunscreens then provide an essential protective barrier. They not only act as a shield against the sun's rays, but also as a barrier against pollutants, preventing their deep penetration into the skin.

Restore your skin barrier with a gentle exfoliating treatment

To effectively protect the skin from damage caused by air pollution, double cleansing is not enough. Indeed, the skin also needs to regenerate and restore its skin barrier to defend itself against external aggressions. It is then appropriate to gently exfoliate your skin, 1 to 2 times a week. By eliminating impurities in depth, exfoliation helps the skin to regenerate, refine its texture, and brighten its complexion, while thus strengthening its ability to defend itself against the harmful effects of pollution.

Our best ally for gentle exfoliation: The new skin mask , whose fruit enzymes help regenerate the skin in just 21 days, for smoother skin texture and a brighter complexion.
