DID you know that the air around you could be damaging your skin and hair? It’s time to shore up your defences. We’re all aware of the devastating effect pollution has on the planet. But while the consequences on the environment are clear, other effects are less well-known. However, they could actually be staring you in the face (literally). We share a selection of products from the high street which will help protect your skin and hair from damage caused by pollution Air contamination can have a serious impact on your appearance. People who live in highly polluted areas are more prone to blemishes, oily skin, premature baldness, a dry scalp and irritated skin. And the UK has some of the worst offenders – for example, London breached EU and UK air pollution limits for the whole of 2019 on March 18. “Signs of environmental damage, such as rough skin, inflammation and premature ageing, can be a direct result of pollutant particles,” says Dr Dendy Engelman, consulting dermatologist for Elizabeth Arden. And the damage doesn’t end there. “Dust, lead and smoke from pollution can cover the surface of the head, which can remove moisture from the hair and scalp, leaving it dry, flaky and prone to balding,” says Redken’s James Pryce from Larry King salon.

Check out our handy guide. Spot of bother Breakouts can be frustrating. And while you might think you’ve done everything to try to tackle them, your usual go-to formulas might not be doing the trick if your blemishes are caused by pollution. Nanoparticles, the most harmful components of pollution, can be up to 20 times smaller than human pores, so without adequate protection they can penetrate skin easily. The Goldfaden MD Detox Clarifying Facial Wash has AHAs that reach deep into the pores “When they become trapped in your skin they can cause a build-up of sebum, which can lead to acne,” explains aesthetic doctor Maryam Zamani. What can you do to combat it? One of the best products for ridding the skin of spot-causing pollution particles is an AHA cleanser such as Goldfaden MD Detox Clarifying Facial Wash, £32. Containing a combination of lactic and glycolic alpha hydroxy acids, it reaches deep into pores and dissolves excess oil and grime. Follow up with Avène’s A-Oxitive Antioxidant Defense Serum, packed with vitamin C and E Follow with an antioxidant-rich serum containing a powerful mix of vitamins.

You might think that slathering on sunscreen every day is all you need to protect your skin, but now there’s an even bigger threat: Pollution. And it’s really bad news. “Pollution causes accelerated aging to the skin,” explains Dr. Howard Sobel, NYC dermatologist and founder of Sobel Skin. “Multiple studies have shown that environmental irritants in the air can cause hyperpigmentation, inflammation, and redness, plus lead to premature fine lines and wrinkles. In addition, these irritants have been shown to break down collagen and the lipid layer, impairing the skin’s barrier function.” The reason skin is susceptible to damage from pollution and free radicals is that it’s so easy for pollution particles to penetrate it. “A pollution particle entering a pore is like a tennis ball going through a basketball hoop — it’s pretty easy for these harmful pollution particles to penetrate into your skin without any line of protection or defense against them,” says dermatologist Dr. Dendy Engelman. “The stratum corneum, or outermost layer of the skin, acts as a barrier protecting the deeper layers of the skin. Nanoparticles, the most harmful components of ambient particulate matter, can be up to 20 times smaller than human pores. When this layer is damaged by the environment, it can result in skin that is irritated, dry, dull and inflamed. It also makes it harder for your anti-aging skincare products, geared towards the collagen and elastin deeper in the epidermis, to penetrate skin.” Surprisingly, it isn’t just a problem in big cities. “Those who live in highly polluted areas are more at risk and should take necessary steps to protect their skin and complexions,” Sobel says. However, keep in mind everyone, no matter where you live, should take precautions. “UVA/UVB rays, infrared, and high-energy visible blue light are all factors of pollution, which trigger the immune system to produce excessive melanin. Therefore, if you spend a lot of time outside, even in rural areas, you are still at risk.” Luckily, there are steps you can take to minimize damage from pollution that will help your skin long after Earth Day. “There are actual products available that eliminate toxins within our cells and combat pollution damage,” Engelman says. “It is critical to select products that are designed to both prevent and correct damage from environmental exposures — this includes both ultraviolet radiation and pollution.” Try these tactics to protect your skin from pollution: Wash your face regularly — and effectively Double cleansing helps get rid of impurities from your face. To take it up a notch, try a facial cleansing tool. Sobel recommends a Clarisonic because “it’s a smart choice that’s proven to cleanse six times better than hands alone.” Be sure to always wash your face before you go to bed. “Cleansing your skin at least once daily is critical to prevent dirt buildup caused by pollution, makeup and all the other gross stuff that has accumulated over the day,” Sobel says. “Use a gentle cleanser specifically formulated for anti-pollution use and follow up with a toner to lift off any excess debris the cleanser didn’t get.” However, don’t get carried away with cleansing too much, since that can strip the skin of its natural oils. Look for antioxidants in your skincare products Antioxidants help fight pollution particles and work to neutralize cell damage that is caused by free radicals. “Free radicals are highly destructive molecules that can wreak havoc on your skin,” Engelman explains. “Free radicals are unstable compounds in search of a missing electron. When they ‘steal’ electrons from other molecules, it leaves those molecules unstable as well and then in turn in search of a missing electron. Because this produces a domino effect, this further weakens the skin barrier, leaving it vulnerable to premature aging, causing fine lines, wrinkles and uneven skin texture. An antioxidant helps protect skin against free radical assaults by neutralizing oxidative stress that can cause cell damage. Antioxidants pair with free radical scavengers in search of a missing electron, so it neutralizes the damage a free radical can do if it were to pair instead with an electron from a skin protein.” Especially effective antioxidants are resveratrol and vitamin C; Engelman recommends OMI Skin Nutrition Wrinkle Lifting Power Serum. Wear sunscreen In addition to shielding your skin from harmful rays, sunscreen can also help with pollution. “Sunscreen should always be used year-round,” Sobel says. “Use an SPF 30 or higher, and when possible, wear a hat and long-sleeve UPF clothing for extra layer of precaution.” Engelman’s go-to sunscreen is Elizabeth Arden PREVAGE City Smart Broad Spectrum SPF50 Hydrating Shield, since it protects from both the sun and pollution and is packed with antioxidants such as green tea. Detox with charcoal It feels like charcoal has been trending as a skincare ingredient for ages now, and for good reason. “Charcoal exfoliators and masks are great as they work to absorb the toxins that get stuck in your pores,” Sobel says. “Facial exfoliators that have brightening ingredients to counteract the effects of environmental exposures to pollution are another smart option.”
