How to protect your skin from the haze: 9 Ways to better skin health
Yes, the most underrated solution to most health problems we can think of—whether it's keeping skin beautiful or ensuring the toxins in your body get flushed out. Staying hydrated also helps to prevent your throat from getting dry and itchy, no thanks to air pollutants.
Since the crappy weather doesn't allow for outdoor physical activities, what better time than now to catch up on that Netflix series you've been putting on hold? Close all windows and doors while you're at it and only open it once the air quality improves. Side note: also, time to indulge in that self-care routine—just because you can.
Since you're gonna be staying home all day long, make sure the air you’re breathing in is healthy (to a certain degree). Use an air purifier like Dyson Pure Cool purifying fan to filter out ultrafine air pollutants and gases—it even has an air quality sensor to report PM2.5 and PM10 concentration levels in real time via the fan’s screen or to your Dyson Link app.
It's been proven that surgical masks aren't effective in preventing the inhalation of tiny airborne particles, so if you really have to go out and about, wear a N95 mask instead. While it helps reduce your exposure to haze, this mask may cause discomfort to some when it comes to breathing—pregnant women, children, and those with chronic lung/heart conditions should consult a doctor before wearing a N95 mask.
Amp up your skincare routine with preventative solutions such as L'Occitane's new Immortelle Precieuse Dynamic Youthcare Serum. This formula is packed with a hyaluronic acid complex and lentil extracts to improve the skin's ability to renew itself and give it a youthful glow.
Got skin that's easily irritated? Keep an eye out for ingredients such as Reishi and Chaga mushrooms that help to calm skin down and reduce visible redness, while prepping the skin for makeup. (Origins' bestselling treatment lotion now comes with this limited-edition Reshi design.)
No one likes a moisturiser that leaves a sticky film on the skin—use this gel cream formula that has cica (Tiger grass complex) to help with soothing and protecting easily-troubled skin. Extra points go to its anti-stress herbal scent. *deep inhale*
A good cleansing oil can take your skin to great heights (or glow, for that matter). Biossance's sustainably-sourced squalane range get a new addition with this lightweight antioxidant-packed cleansing oil to remove makeup and impurities like a breeze.
Impart some nourishing goodness to the skin before catching your beauty zzz's. Frank Body's paraben-free blend of charcoal, chamomile, honey and lavender is great for both removing dirt off your skin and soothing it right after.
