Pollution can accelerate skin aging and trigger breakouts. Pollution includes environmental pollution, air pollution, water pollution, noise pollution, and even sunlight induced damage. 

Sunlight is filtered from UV rays by a protective ozone layer. But the effects of environmental pollution haveresulted in a depletion of that protective layer. This results in more UV rays reaching earth and damaging our skin. 

As the pollution levels soar around us, our skin becomes vulnerable to its harmful effects. 

Here are some ways to keep your skin protected:

1. Cleansing your skin should be a daily ritual. Use a gentle cleanser to get rid of any dust particles and sebum on your skin.

2. Use SPF thoroughly: UV rays along with pollution leads to skin damage, acne and breakouts. Apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen daily and carry it along with you for the ease of re-application.

3. Moisturize and replenish your skin during your night routine to keep it supple and soft.

4. Exfoliate your skin gently to get rid of any dead skin cells and pollution build-up.

5. Stay Hydrated: Drink plenty of water and maintain a healthy lifestyle.

6.Use vitamin C serum regularly. It has antioxidant effects, thus protects from the deleterious effects of pollution.

7. Remove make up and sunscreen before going to bed.
