It can be hard to know how to protect your skin from atmospheric pollution, and what products to use. Throughout the years, air pollution has become more and more concentrated and detrimental, and thus, passing on its harmful effects to the human skin. These pollutants can range from petroleum products, harsh chemicals, car exhaust, ozone, cigarette smoke and various other chemicals. Low quality beauty products are also full of chemicals that age the skin and scalp but using the right skincare can make all the difference in defending your skin and creating a shield against these substances.
SkinCeuticals antioxidants and broad spectrum sunscreens work together to shield the skin from the sun, ozone pollution and bad ozone found on the earth’s surface as well as car exhaust.
The SkinCeuticals Physical Fusion UV Defense SPF 50 is an extremely lightweight, broad spectrum sunscreen that is waterproof and provides excellent UV protection. Added artemia salina (plankton extract) helps to further defend the skin from harmful UV rays as well as heat stress. This product is paraben free as well as non-comedogenic, and waterproof for up to 40 minutes.
The SkinCeuticals C E Ferulic is an award winning antioxidant serum that protects against photoaging. The ingredients protect against free radicals, improve collagen production and provide the antioxidant protection necessary to keep skin looking fresh and young. Once this product has been applied it cannot be rubbed off or washed which makes it ideal to use alongside sunscreens, where you need all the protection you can get.
