10 Natural Anti Pollution Skincare Products

Live in a city? Care about your skin? You need natural anti pollution skincare products more than you think

By Lora O’Brien

We all know that pollution’s bad for the planet. I mean, whose heart hasn’t been broken by the sight of a sea turtle entangled in a plastic bag, or a bird slicked with oil? We also know it’s bad for our health: if you live in a big city, you may even have asthma, thanks to being surrounded by many cars running on fossil fuels. Did you know those who live in highly polluted areas even have a 20% higher risk of lung cancer?

But it’s not only cars that smother us in pollution: there are volatile gases emitted from chemicals in our furnishings and clothing, cigarette smoke, agricultural pesticides and many other contributors hurt not only our health, but our beauty, too.

Yep, that’s right. Skin’s our biggest organ – but have you ever stopped to think about how pollution is damaging it? You just have to look at your makeup wipe after a day outside to see just how congested  and dirty our skin can get.

The Ugly Results of Pollution

An uneven skin tone, larger pores, dark pigmentation spots, accelerated wrinkles and other signs of aging and even skin cancer are the potential results of the pollution our skin struggles against on a daily basis. It’s even been proven that those of us exposed to increased pollution levels have more dark pigmentation spots and wrinkling.

When microscopic amounts of smoke, soot, acid and various other pollutants are released in the atmosphere,  these minuscule particles actually infiltrate the deepest layers of our skin. This not only causes inflammation (redness) and dehydration (flakiness), but it will also eventually contribute to a loss of elasticity and firmness – undoing everything we think we’re fighting against with our skincare regimes.

But there is some good news. The damage of both pollution and cosmetics that pollute your body can be kept at bay with a few simple steps:

  • First, of course, avoid pollution whenever possible. On high pollution days, keep all windows shut. Walk as far away from traffic as you can. And avoid spending long amounts of time in your car – this exposes you to far more pollution than walking outside does.
  • Think about investing in a HEPA air purifier if you live in a polluted city.
  • Avoid smokers at all costs, and if you smoke, quit. You’re not only damaging your lungs and heart, you’re damaging your skin as well (and the skins of those around you).
  • Follow a few simple steps and use some really great, all natural skin-care products. My suggestions are below.

First, Cleanse

Obviously, an anti pollution skincare regime starts with cleansing our faces from grime is vital to protect ourselves from contaminants. Use a mild, natural cleanser in the morning and spend a few minutes massaging it into the skin of the face and neck, which actually helps detox lymph glands, too.

Once or twice a week, I’ll use a spin brush to really deep cleanse my pores. If you don’t have one, I’d recommend using a gentle exfoliator to remove any lingering dirt and dead skin cells – but don’t overdo it, as our top layer of skin works as a barrier against environmental toxins.

After cleansing, splash your face with cold water to close your pores, and then use a muslin cloth to sweep toner over your face as a final step. Some people skip using a toner, but I like to use something like rose water to keep my skin soft and hydrated – it also adds some free-radical fighting power.

Then, Neutralise

And speaking of free radicals, we need to neutralise are those pesky little things! Free radicals are  basically little molecules that search and steal  electrons from our healthy cells, causing injury. Collagen is what gives our skin its firmness, and when free radicals poke holes in the collagen structure that supports our skin, it can cause hyperpigmentation and fine lines.

If you have acne prone skin or suffer with rosacea, free radicals may also irritate and cause inflammation, making these conditions worse. Pretty bad, right? So, what’s the answer? Antioxidants! The nutrients in antioxidants can lend electrons where they’re needed, which is essentially neutralising the free radical and abolishing the effects they can have.

An antioxidant rich serum can help. After cleansing day and night, layer on your serum of choice and allow it to sink in before topping with your moisturiser. The serum penetrates deeply into the skin both protecting and  repairing it. Another way to help your skin big time is to eat antioxidant rich foods such as blueberries, leafy greens and beans.

Create a Barrier

What would you rather have: pollution particles on your skin, or pollution particles on the cream covering your skin? It’s a no brainer. A great cream, preferably with all natural sunscreens and antioxidants, will fight pollution and the effects of the sun all day long, whilst keeping your skin nice and soft.

But there is a huge caveat here: your SPF must be plant or mineral based! In fact, one of the most common SPF ingredients is oxybenzone, which has been linked not only to accelerating the ageing process, but also cancer. It’s bioaccumulative, which means it builds up in your tissues, creating a highly toxic environment in your body. Not worth it!

Here are my picks of the best natural anti pollution skincare products, chosen for their effectiveness and all-natural, healthy ingredients.

    Hey,
    OMG, I just recently realized that I am using skincare products with oxybenzone. I have to switch my products to these in your list. I think I have to pick one first and little by little until I have all of it. Thanks for letting us know.
