How To Haze-Proof Your Skin

With the PSI levels on the rise, here's how you can save your skin from the haze.

Environmental factors that stimulate free-radical production (which contributes to skin ageing) include UV rays, radiation, pollution, and lifestyle habits like smoking. Now that the haze is back, you can be sure that there will be an increase in free radical production, but how does it affect you and how can you prevent it?

Free radicals damage healthy cells and causes them to oxidise, much like how a piece of cut apple turns brown. Over time, it affects the collagen and elastin, which determines how taut and firm your skin is, causing wrinkles and dullness. The body’s best defense against free radicals are antioxidants, which includes ingredients like vitamin C, vitamin E, retinols, green tea, lycopene, resveratrol, grape seed and niacinamide.
