Malaysia is one of the countries in Southeast Asia that is worst affected by pollutions such as haze which are commonly caused by slash and burn practice by farmers and peat fires from Indonesia. The other common factor is the car emission since Malaysia has the highest level of car ownership per person in the world and thus, led to the high levels of carbon monoxide pollution in most major cities. 

 

There are many definitions of pollution and basically it is a mix of many different components and elements that are responsible for the changes to our health and skin. It is capable of penetrating through our skin, inducing collagen and elastin breakdown, and also releasing the free radicals. According to the recent study about the link between atmospheric pollution (eg. nitrogen and ozone oxides) and premature skin ageing, people living in populous cities have lower levels of vitamin E and squalene in sebum. The sizes of the particulate matters (PM) in the urban pollution are ranges from 2.5 to 10 microns, which seem to be one of the main threats to skin health which can cause cellular damage, dryness, inflammation and pigmentation.

 

Anti-pollution skin care has become the growing trend in the beauty industry in recent years. Some of the famous skin care brands, including natural and organic, have released products that can protect our skin from pollutions. One of the main ingredients in most anti-pollution skin care is antioxidant. Some examples of good antioxidants are vitamin C, retinol (vitamin A), vitamin E, resveratrol, coenzymeQ10, niacimide (vitamin B3) and polyphenols. Antioxidants have great many benefits to our skin since it helps to combat free radicals from further damaging our skin cells. Some of the benefits are they can help correct signs of ageing, prevent sunburn, help the skin to repair itself, brighten the skin tone and prevent skin cancer.

 

There are many great natural anti-pollution skin care products on the shelves, nowadays, that offer basically the protection you need from the pollutants around you such as antioxidant, anti-toxin, anti-inflammatory, anti-microbial and UV protection. Not only that, these anti-pollution ingredients will also offer the benefit of strengthening your protective skin barrier, increase hydration and repair damaged cells.
