Beginner's Guide to Anti-Pollution Skin Care
How does pollution affect my skin?
Did you know that pollution is harmful to your skin? Air pollution (exhaust fumes and smog), particulate matter, cigarette smoke and blue light from electronic devices all contribute to early signs of skin ageing. Fortunately, there’s something you can do about this.
Pollution is nothing new, but is a growing problem. That is why Paula’s Choice products have been formulated for years with powerful antioxidants and other ingredients that protect skin from harmful environmental influences.
How do you protect your skin against pollution?
You can protect your skin from the harmful effects of pollution by choosing skin care products with APF ™ - Anti-Pollution Factor. This indicates that the product contains a blend of antioxidants and skin-replenishing ingredients which help to reduce and counteract the visible effects of pollution.
Does your current routine protect you sufficiently against pollution?
If your skin care routine includes Paula’s Choice products, you are on the right track. Many of our skin care products contain a powerful blend of various antioxidants that protect and restore your skin. But if you’d like to do something extra to combat the effects of pollution, you could consider adding an antioxidant serum to your routine.
Are products from the Defense line better than other products?
The products in our Defense line are primarily aimed at preventing skin damage caused by pollution. However, there are many other Paula's Choice products that will also help protect your skin against pollution. If you’re new to Paula’s Choice, then our Defense system is a great place to start.
Can you add products from the Defense line to your current routine?
If you want to add a product from our Defense line to your existing Paula's Choice routine, then of course you can. For example, adding the Pore Purifier to your existing skin care routine is a great way to prevent the effects of pollution. Use it after cleansing and exfoliating and before applying any treatments and your day or night cream.
