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.
