I can totally understand the pains of every girl who walks out of the house every morning to work or school. Whenever I head out of my house for office I try to always cover my face with a scarf. But guys, honestly saying it does not help to the extent in which we want it to.
All the smoke, dust and dirt accumulate on our skin and clog all our pores. The effects of pollution on our skin are really harmful, if exposed regularly it can have permanent effects on the skin. We cannot help the pollution much but can definitely take ample care of our skin.
Here are some ways in which you can protect your skin from all the contamination.
First things first
You can wear a scarf over your head and drape it all over your face for the added protection. Make sure the cloth of your scarf is cotton ish so as to avoid all the sweat.
Make it a point to wash your face with a good face wash as soon as you step into your house. Do it even before you have a glass water, this way it will help you get rid of all the dirt that has been accumulated on your facial skin.
Never compromise with this ritual at any cost. Always apply sunscreen on your face, neck, chest and every exposed part of the body to save yourself from the ruinous damage.
Always remove makeup
