Pollution is one of the major factors of skin aging. Nitrogen particles irritate the skin and carbon monoxide particles dry it out. As a result, the skin is heavily weakened and dehydrated. Indeed, all these active ingredients are the cause of many inconveniences such as pigment spots, redness, pore dilation and dull complexion. Not to mention the tightness and a feeling of discomfort. To remedy this and protect the skin from these external attacks, many institutes offer “anti-pollution” treatments. With detoxifying, moisturizing and draining properties, these treatments allow the skin to regain radiance and elasticity. Here is our selection.
