Pollution-Fighting Skin Care Products

You may be the most hygienic person out there, but no matter what you do, we are all faced with invisible pollutants every time we step outside our doors. So, if we do our best to stay inside, we’ll be okay then, right? Wrong. At times, indoor air is even worse than outdoor air because of the microscopic particles it harbors.  If your skin is unprotected, you’ll find both the innermost and outermost layers damaged by the air around you.

However, there are steps you can take to protect your skin. You’ll find several anti-pollution products designed to fight dirty air and keep your skin glowing. We’ve listed some of the best products below.


Vitamin C, Vitamin E, and ferulic acid are some of the most powerful ingredients you can find to fight against dirty particles and sulphur dioxide, saving you from damage and skin aging. Ferulic acid, an ingredient that has more recently been discovered and put to use in the beauty industry because of its ability to fight pollution, is an antioxidant that naturally occurs in plants. Both Vitamins C and E are also antioxidants that protect the exposed layer of your skin from environmental pollution and inflammation.

An “antioxidant” is a substance that inhibits oxidation or oxidative stress. This stress disturbs your body’s ability to detoxify and repair and also causes wrinkles along with other premature aging symptoms. Oxidative stress happens when oxygen molecules break up into single atoms containing unpaired electrons referred to as free radicals. These free radicals search the body for other electrons with which they can pair, damaging cells along the way. When you consume and apply external products that contain antioxidants, your skin is better able to repair itself and fight off free radicals.  

Throughout the summer, try DermaCell C+ Anti-Aging Serum on your face and skin every day to help combat the aging effects of air pollution and encourage naturally produced protective collagen to maintain your skin’s elasticity and protective barrier.


This acid is one that is often used in natural skin products to nourish the skin; in fact, it occurs naturally in your skin and connective tissues already to keep it moist. Hyaluronic acid is so powerful that it can hold many times its weight in water, blocking out pollution.

One of the effects of aging is that your body produces less hyaluronic acid which leaves your skin exposed to dehydration and pollutants. By applying top-quality hyaluronic acid to your face, you can offset this process, but be sure to select paraben-free products that don’t have added fragrance or color dye. Rub some into your skin each morning before exposing yourself to polluted air.


Now that you know your skin is constantly being exposed to pollutants that could very negatively affect it, you also know how important it is to keep your outer layer protected, nourished, and radiant through high-quality products designed to do this. As you choose what’s right for you, just make sure you’re using products that are natural, pollution-fighting, and without parabens, fragrances, or other harmful ingredients. Apply these products on a daily basis for the best results, keeping your skin youthful, glowing, and pollution-free!

Skin Types and Care

Signs of Aging

The first signs of aging are wrinkles, which start to show up around the age of 30. At this point, your collagen production significantly decreases causing your skin to lose much of its elasticity and tone. Each year, more wrinkles appear and deepen around your nose, eyes, and mouth, and the skin begins to sag, giving your face a persistently tired look. The process is accelerated by sunlight which also causes “age spots,” or unattractive areas of pigmentation.

Facial care is crucial for counteracting the aging process, so we recommend using anti-aging day-and-night sera or nourishing face masks.

Blemished Skin

Some only associate things like blackheads, spots, and oily red skin with puberty, but unfortunately for most, they continue on into adulthood mainly because of hormonal imbalances, unhealthy lifestyles, or stress.

Prevention starts with daily, nourishing skincare along with a healthy lifestyle – diet and exercise. Products that contain vitamin A or purifying cleansing masks are especially beneficial.

Sensitive Skin

If you have skin that gets irritated easily or reddens quickly, whether from the environment, certain care products, or other factors, mostly likely you have sensitive skin.

If you use the right products, you can begin to sooth and strengthen your skin’s natural protective barrier to avoid irritation. The best way to care for sensitive skin is to use a serum specially formulated for your skin type, regular enzyme peels, and gentle facial masks.

Dry Skin

Some skin types find that their oil and moisture regulation is impaired, causing the skin to feel slightly to very tight and even become cracked, itchy, or red in certain areas. Since your skin isn’t able to store enough moisture, the natural protective layer is gone; this most often is caused by too much sunlight, extreme care products, or an unhealthy diet.

The cure for dry skin is easy – provide moisture! Use moisturizing masks, face lotions, leave it slightly wet after the shower, and most importantly, drink lots of water.

Enlarged Pores

An impaired skin surface combined with an excessive production of sebum results in larger pores, coarse skin, and a tendency for your T zone to become oily. Since the pores grow larger due to clogging, your skin ends up having a course structure.

If your skin possesses these characteristics, use light creams rather than greasy or oily products. Using pore-refining facial masks once or twice a week will also do wonders.

Oily Skin

If your skin has a tendency to be oily, especially in the forehead, nose, and chin area, it means your skins production of sebum (skin oil) is higher. As a result, you end up with a constant sheen which feels oily to the touch and blocked pores which lead to blackheads and other blemishes.

Makeup can cure this temporarily, but a more permanent cure is to use care that gently cleans your pores and has a balancing effect.

Pigment Spots

Those smooth brown spots you may be finding on your skin are pigment spots caused by too much time in the sun. They can also appear on your décolletage.

The most vital prevention tactic is to use sunscreen; use it every day, even during the winter. If you already have these spots, you can find special products created to reduce the appearance of them, so make a visit to the beauty salon to find one that works for you!
