SPF protection isn’t the only thing you need to keep your skin protected outside. There are plenty of environmental factors beyond UV rays that accelerate aged skin.
Pollution is the second most harmful aggression to the skin after the sun and the air surrounding us is mainly polluted by smoke, exhaust gas and car particles. It’s no wonder that those who live in urban environments tend to age ten percent faster than those in rural environments. With urban landscapes increasing in population and, only naturally, air pollution, the skincare industry is hyper focused on products that protect your skin from pollution.
So why should you care about pollution, and why are we calling pollution the new UV? Because pollutants dehydrate the skin, decrease the production of skin collagen and cause overall skin irritation. This means more lines, wrinkles, rougher skin texture and skin discoloration.
Don’t panic – you don’t have to hide under the covers all day long! To protect your skin from pollution Aloette has incredible products that you can easily add into your skincare regimen:
