HOW DOES POLLUTION AFFECT OUR SKIN?
Air pollution poses an increasingly greater threat to our skin – the largest organ in our body. While our skin serves as a natural barrier against external factors, small nanoparticles in the form of dirt, dust or soot can still enter and negatively
impact your skin cells, causing premature aging.
Dirt particles that accumulate on the skin’s surface may cause clogged pores when they mix with your skin cells and oil. Over time, pollution also causes our skin barrier to be weakened by breaking down the collagen and lipids contained within it. Like
our body, our skin sends out a signal when it is in need of detox. Some of the tell-tale signs can be dull skin, flaky skin, rough skin texture, dryness, whiteheads, inflammatory acne and the list can go on.
HOW TO FIX IT?
Skin Care that Counteracts Pollution
We’ve put together a simple skincare routine to fight against the effects of pollution!
Step 1: Double Cleanse
Gently exfoliate with Mirage Miracle’s Refining Face Polish to remove dead skin cells and clogged pores. Follow with Super Moisture Cleanser to thoroughly remove all makeup, dirt and impurities. This cleanser leaves a deep moisture layer and does not leave your skin feeling tight. With a clean skin canvas, your skin is now more receptive to the benefits of the products applied afterwards.
Step 2: Repair
After applying your toner, it’s time to refresh and repair your skin with an ampoule infused with antioxidants. Antioxidants help to protect the skin’s surface from free radicals, environmental pollutants and UV rays. Mirage Miracle’s Collagen Ampoule is packed with 17 amino acids that fuels cells for increased collagen production, improves skin elasticity and speeds up your skin’s repair process.
Step 3: Hydrate & Strengthen
At the final step, Apply Mirage Miracle’s Hyaluronic Serum to fortify your skin barrier, promote skin cell regeneration and lock moisture in for an extra hydrating effect. With a strengthened skin barrier protected by hyaluronic, the skin is able to better defend itself against environmental age-factors and pollutants.
For a limited time only, get the Mirage Miracle Anti-Pollution Skin Care Set at $250 (u.p $277.60) and start your skin’s defense against pollution.
Oxidation damage on the skin can cause premature aging, dullness and pigmentation. By eating food rich in antioxidants, your body will be able to fight oxidation from inside out! Some examples of recommended foods are fatty fish, avocados, walnuts, sunflower seeds, sweet potatoes, red/yellow bell peppers, broccoli, tomatoes, soy, dark chocolate, green tea and red grapes.
Pollution can also remove moisture from your skin so it is important to drink plenty of water to replenish moisture.
