If there’s one skin care snag I’ve become increasingly aware of over the last year, it’s how much the effects of modern day life have the ability to wreak havoc with my complexion.

From the reoccurring reminders to wear a protective shield of UV protection to the constant warnings surrounding environmental free - radical imbalances. The effects of pollution are at an all time high now more than ever before, with record breaking levels in London exceeding previous pollution figures, which led to the capital's highest air pollution alert being issued in January this year.

What can I do to manage the effects of pollution on my skin?

Tailoring your beauty regime to target the effects of pollution can help especially if you live or work in a city, along with thoroughly cleansing the skin as soon as you get home to minimises the chance of pollution toxins setting into the skin.

Exfoliating on a weekly basis is a crucial step to combatting against the effects of congested skin from the result of anti pollution. Try Claudia Fallah’s Gentle Exfoliant Creme, £39 which is of a creamy non abrasive texture, for a lighter yet long lasting approach to smoother skin.
