10 Anti-pollution and Inflammaging Products

10 Anti-pollution and Inflammaging Products

It isn’t just urbanites that are at risk of air pollution and, (new buzzword alert), inflammaging. These are serious causes for concern whether you live in New York City or Kansas, and if you don’t take the necessary measures to protect your skin, you’ll end up wearing the pollution on your face come ten years’ time.

You can’t always see pollution, but it’s there and it’s eclipsing the state. It can permeate the deepest layers of your skin and alter the skin barrier, in turn causing unwanted chronic inflammation. This means unwelcome pigmentation and destruction of collagen alongside an unpredictable formation of wrinkles – otherwise known as inflammaging.

And what’s worse is that sensitive skin types, and those suffering from inflammatory conditions such as eczema, are more susceptible to the effects of air and traffic pollution, which can also be damaging to the hair.

It’s not too late to save your hair and skin! Discover 10 products that will prevent and combat the effects and help your skin live happily ever after downtown, uptown, by the beach, in the suburbs and everywhere else in-between.

  3. HairMax Density Revitalizer
    $18.00 Buy now with Skinstore US

    HairMax Density Revitalizer

    Your scalp is an extension of your skin which means it can get decongested in the same way.

    Air pollution from the thick smog of the city can result in a higher sebum secretion rate, and excessive sebum on the scalp can block hair follicles as they become over-saturated with the hair’s natural oil. This weakens the hair strands and in turn, your locks are more prone to breakage.

    The Hairmax Density Revitalizer is an advanced purifier that exfoliates the scalp, removes environmental pollutants and dissolves excess sebum and perspiration that can clog hair follicles and inhibit hair growth. An invigorating blend of menthol and peppermint oil leaves your scalp feeling refreshed and revitalized.

    Grow Gorgeous Strengthening Oil

    When you live cityside, dust particles are more likely to come into contact with the scalp and penetrate the upper layer. This can affect the hair structure as they’re vulnerable to environmental elements and external aggressors.

    The Grow Gorgeous Strengthening Oil, which can be applied any which way, can serve as a protective step in your haircare routine. Fortified with chia seed oil, this natural anti-oxidant protects hair fibres from oxidative damage by creating a protective film around the hair to avoid protein loss. It’s also enriched with beet extract which provides additional nutrition to feed stressed out hair that is often exposed to the sun’s harmful rays, pollution, extreme weather conditions and styling damage.
