Is your skin seeing hazy days? Here’s what you should do.
Time to take a closer look at your skincare
When it comes to picking the right skincare, it’s natural to pick products that are suitable for your skin type. However, did you know that the climate you live in also plays a large factor in the type of skincare you should be using? With the current hazy climate (and everyday city pollution!), it’s a good idea to pay more attention to what you’re putting on your face. Here are some must-dos to combat dead skin and pollutants on your face.
Be diligent about cleansing, toning and moisturizing
When you’re constantly out and about, imagine the amount of impurities that settle on your face by the end of the day! It’s important to remain conscientious about the basics to ensure you have a thoroughly clean base for your skincare. Opt for a gentle cleanser and toner, and select a moisturizer that not just nourishes your skin but also helps to reverse the harmful effects of the haze.
Detox with the Ultra Pore Refiner Anti-Blemish Night Cream
If your skin is feeling exceptionally suffocated (and you’ve not been indulging in fried food), you could be suffering from the effects of enlarged and clogged pores. With the increased amount of dust and grime in the air, you’ll want to clean out your pores gently with a product like the Ultra Pore Refiner Anti-Blemish Night Cream from The Moisturizers Co. Specially formulated to minimize the appearance of enlarged pores, it focuses on a few key ingredients:
Niacinamide controls oil production and reduce the effects of clogged pores during the haze—at the same time producing more collagen and elastin so you retain a youthful outlook! Ceramide helps your skin retain moisture, locking in hydration and strengthening your skin’s natural lipid barrier. This is essential as the hazy season could be extra drying on your skin.
Glycolic Acid is used in combination with Witch Hazel and Lactic Acid to create a potent blend to clear out excess sebum and tighten pores. Glycolic Acid is also one of the most effective ingredients in anti-pollution skincare by sloughing off dead skin to reveal a clear, smooth complexion.
Wake up feeling brand new with the Cell Regenerate Gel Cream
When the air is thick with pollutants, you may feel the urge to wash your face more often. While this does help your face stay clean, it will likely strip it of its natural oils and cause unnecessary dryness. Instead, invest in a quality night cream like The Moisturizers Co. Cell Regenerate Gel Cream that’s packed with antioxidants like Black Mulberry (Resveratrol), specifically selected for its ability to protect the skin from environmental damage, as well as Coenzyme Q10—its molecular size easily penetrates skin cells to boost skin repair and neutralise the effects of free radicals in the air. This gel-cream formula also contains Squalane to encourage the development of new skin cells, while protecting the skin from damaging UV rays and air pollution.
Give dull skin a boost with the Brightening Moisturizing Cream
Dry skin instantly causes the skin to look lifeless and dull. It’s crucial to load up on skincare that’s formulated with rich actives and high concentrations of skin vitamins so that you know you’re receiving the nutrients your skin needs. The Moisturizers Co. Brightening Moisturizing Cream is an easy, serum-infused cream that is rich in Vitamins A, C, and E—the latter is an exceptionally handy antioxidant with anti-inflammatory properties that neutralise harmful free radicals and protect the skin from pollutants brought on by the haze.
Soothe and rejuvenate your skin with the Glow Renew Essence Toner
Filled with rich skin conditioning actives, the latest addition to The Moisturizers Co's efficacy range - the Glow Renew Essence Toner also features one of our favorite antioxidants: Green Tea extracts! They work to boost the immunity of skin cells to protect your skin from external toxins. The formulation also contains Pro-Vitamin B5 (also known as Panthenol) to hydrate the skin, and also uses Niacinamide to prevent clogged pores. This multi-essence toner is also an extremely handy product thanks to its multi-use cases! You can use it as a regular toner at home (get 5 capsules of an ultra-thin silk mask for your own DIY home spa when you purchase the toner) or bring it out in a portable mist spray bottle during this hazy season for an instant spritz of protection and freshness.
