The answer to the above question is a resounding yes. We know that air pollution can be an issue for our lungs but less known is that it can also damage your complexion. The more pollution you are exposed to, the greater the risk you will damage your skin, accelerate the signs of aging and develop symptoms such as dark spots. And, sadly, pollution levels in big cities are a current fact of life.
So what can you do about it?
If packing your bags and moving to the countryside isn’t an option, there are other ways to help minimize and protect the skin. It is widely known now that a daily sunscreen is necessary to protect skin from sun damage but most of us stop there. For a long-term skincare strategy you should also be applying a daily “antioxidant screen” to protect your skin from the harmful effects of exposure to pollutants in your environment. The antioxidants in an appropriate skincare product will help defend your skin from environmental aggressors and other stressors, including stress itself.
MitoQ contains a biological antioxidant to help shield your skin, rejuvenate skin cells and restore collagen and elastin production for firmer, brighter looking skin. It can help with fine lines and blemishes, and leave your skin feeling healthier.
Three steps to help counteract the harsh effects of air pollution on skin:
- Before you apply your daily SPF, use an antioxidant serum to create a barrier for airborne skin agers.
- Before bed, always wash off the day from your face and use night products, such as MitoQ Night Cream and MitoQ Night Serum, to help repair skin.
- Slough off dead skin cells once weekly or fortnightly, depending on your skin’s sensitivity.
All the products in the MitoQ® Skincare range contain the same amount of our original breakthrough product, MitoQ, with additional, carefully selected, premium ingredients, proven to support skin health.
