Air pollution is obviously a hot topic of discussion what with the over the roof pollution index on Monday morning. In addition to the various health concerns, I also have a more superficial concern; clogged pores. Air pollution ages skin prematurely and if pollutants stay on the skin for a long period of time, it will increase the oxidation of sebum, creates pimples, rashes and allergies in addition to skin dehydration. So what can you do to combat the dust? Check out a few of our recommendations:
Bulgari Radiance Cleansing Milk
Enriched with soothing extract of rose and bisabolol, the Bulgari Radiance Cleansing Milk is a cleansing lotion which delicately removes all traces of make-up and impurities, leaving the skin soft and radiant. Contains the Bulgari Gem Essence which we covered in a previous post.
MTM Custom-blended Massage Cleanser
This cleanser is a professional homecare treatment utilising deep cleansing and massages procedures to awaken the self-cleansing power of skin. It will accelerate skin metabolism and remove dead skin and pore-clogging impurities while simultaneously strengthening the self-cleansing mechanism of skin cells and prevents pore congestion.
Shu Uemura Pore Clarifying Foaming Cleansing Water
Get a more refined and smooth skin with Shu Uemura’s self-foaming cleansing water. Enriched with the purity of the water lily which is known for it’s anti-bacterial and anti-oxidant properties, this cleanser is recommended for people who prefer the texture of light airy foam in the morning and in the evening after using a cleansing oil.
IPSA Time Reset Skin Smoother
This beauty essence is designed for topical application to reduce the oiliness of skin while smoothening the skin's texture. Two options are available; a powder-gel essence that prevents built-up oil and makeup deterioration while treating enlarged pores or a milk essence that softens the skin texture while treating enlarged pores and smoothening the skin.
