Summer air pollution levels have decreased dramatically over the past 10 years, but winter levels have not.
Now that the outdoor temps are dropping quickly as in basically over night, it is ket to make sure to incorporate a few anti-pollution products into your daily beauty routine to shield your skin and strands from premature aging caused by exposure to pollution.
Here are a few pollution-proof products to start with.

Formulated with micro-exfoliating lipo-hydroxy acid and oil-targeting zinc pidolate, these towelettes visibly smooth and refine skin texture.
