The Best Anti-Pollution Facials

7th May 2019 // By Samantha Coles

Pollution can wreak havoc on skin. It can cause uneven skin tone, blemishes, breakouts, clogged pores, and accelerates the ageing process. As pollution particles are so minuscule, they can penetrate the deeper layers of the skin and have a damaging effect on lipid and collagen levels. It’s hard to avoid if you’re a city dweller, and no matter how vigorous your cleansing routine is, those pesky particles could still be causing problems to your skin. So how to fix it? With an expert facial that specifically targets the effects of pollution.
