Why is Pollution Your Skin Worst Enemy and How to Fight it

by Namisha Singh Beauty Blogger

Other than the piercing UV rays, there are numerous substances out in the air, ruining our skin’s health. Daily exposure to such toxins has the potential to cause severe skin conditions such as premature ageing, dermatitis, psoriasis, acne, hair loss and even skin cancer. Even if you don’t live in tier 1 or tier 2 cities like Delhi and Jaipur, the toxins won’t leave your back. Approximately 92% of people in the world live in such areas where the air pollution index exceeds the safe limit.

If you are still thinking about your scarf or sunscreen, you need to think again. All that smog from the vehicles, chimneys, houses and cigarettes does a number on your skin. If these small-structured toxins can pierce into your skin cells, do you think your scarf can save you? And then comes the night, where your sunscreen won’t even do half of the work. The best anti-pollution night creams and serums are effective only if you are consistent. If you can take care of everything else, you can easily find a few minutes to care for yourself.

Choosing anti-pollution skincare or face care products are not so tricky if you know the formula. So, here we are making it easy for you.

Anti-Pollution Ingredient Guide

Since ages, the most educated families of India are relying on nature for long-lasting beauty and wellness. Mother Earth and Ayurveda have already provided us with some powerful ingredients. With the infusion of some pure modern solutions, it is possible to fight the present-day Rakshasas polluting the earth. Natural skincare is now more effective than ever. The only thing you need to do is go through the ingredient list and follow the anti-pollution skincare religiously. To find the perfect skincare product, look for natural antioxidant and skin rejuvenating ingredients like Okra, Sahjan, Green tea, Ashwagandha, Vitamin E and Vitamin C.

Which ingredients would stab you in the back?

It is vital to know the don’ts along with the dos, right? So, cut off from any skincare or face care product that has high levels of unnatural substances, like parabens, fragrances, polymers and dioxins among others. Many countries have already banned such potentially dangerous ingredients.

Now, all you have to do is give this a go. This is our easy and brilliant anti-pollution skincare ritual formed using natural skincare ingredients.

Anti-pollution skincare ritual


  1. Morning

Use a gentle clay-based or gel-based natural face cleanser to thoroughly cleanse clogged pores. Choose a natural face care product having ingredients like Vitamin E, Cucumber, Mint, Moroccan lava clay and activated charcoal.

  1. Night

Use a gentle and soft-textured scrub cleanser. You don’t want your skin to get inflamed while removing deep impurities. A green tea scrub cleanser is a healthy choice as green tea is an excellent exfoliant with a gentle but powerful effect.


Face serum works as a skin barrier and toner. A natural serum for acne-prone skin without unnatural substances is a wise choice. More unnatural and toxic chemicals are not what your skin needs. Look for a natural

face serum with ingredients like Aloe Vera, Niacinamide, and multiple fruit extracts. Such a powerful elixir helps your skin to fight away the pollutants and reduce previous skin damage.


  1. Day time

Studies show that dry skin is prone to high infections. To keep your skin moisturized, use a natural skincare lotion with SPF 15 or above. You won’t need to add sunscreen after applying an all-rounder nourishing lotion. It aids in moisturization, UV protection and pollution shielding.

  1. Night Time

Utilize the nighttime to nourish your skin with the best anti-pollution night cream. The cream has multiple wonders to shower upon our skin. It works as a skin rejuvenator, anti-pollution and anti-wrinkle night cream. Look for natural ingredients like Okra Extract, Gotu Kola Extract, Lavender Oil, Sahjan Extract, Allantoin, Shea Butter, C15-19 Alkane Hyaluronic Acid, Moringa, Niacinamide, Tamarind Extract, Cocoa Butter, Vitamin E and Ashwagandha.

Natural and Ayurvedic skincare has long ago been spread across nations, with numerous people getting educated about the powers of nature and Indian Ayurvedic wisdom. Since time immemorial educated Indian families practice this eternal self-care ritual to have healthy skin and body. The only solution to achieve full protection against today’s pollutants is to regularly feed healthy substances into your body and skin cells.
