Has the haze got your skin in a daze?
There’s been lots of talk about the effects of pollution on the skin in the recent years. But for those not in the know, here’s a quick summary: It increases free radical production in the skin, causes premature ageing, weakens your skin barrier and can even lead to acne – on top of dehydrated, sensitive, dull skin (the worst kind of acne to tackle, by the way.)
A month-long vacation is a tempting (and extravagant) way to escape this ‘haze’-dous skin saboteur that’s not all practical, but we can all pack these stellar skincare to save our suffering complexions.
Get your glow back with this smog-repelling trio:
Keep calm and moisturise with the best of Nature and Science.

So you stay radiantly youthful and supple despite the greyish, unfriendly skies.
There’s probably no quicker way to set skin right than slapping on a ‘mask’-ed hero. This pore-plunging mask detoxifies as it revitalises with a blast of oxygen, soothing botanicals, and radiance-ramping amino acids and antioxidants to help lacklustre skin rebound from external and internal stresses.
