- Pollution enhances the properties of UV. Be sure to apply sunscreen regularly! Even though it's smoggy and the sun doesn't seem to be shining through, UV rays may actually be enhanced! Also, there's two types of pollution: particulate and ozone.
- The particulate is very fine and gets into pores. It can cause aging! Sonic cleansing brushes (like Clarisonic--I want one T___T) are recommended because it can clean 30x better than normal hand washing.
- Ozone causes the breakdown of proteins and lipids in the skin. Thus, antioxidant serums are really important for combating this pollution.
- Check out State of the Air to see how clean your air is! Sorry, this is for the States only. LA has a rating of F for both particulate and ozone pollution--how sad!
Do you guys have a Clarisonic Mia? I don't, but I wish I had one >___<
