How Maintain Clear Skin Despite Pollution

1 MIN READ • 26th October 2021
Health and Wellbeing by Health and Wellbeing

Air pollution is loaded with dangerous heavy metals, poisonous gases such as ozone, nitrogen dioxide and sulphur dioxide and toxic particles known as particulate matter (PM). Reduce your daily risk by taking a few simple steps:

Stand back

If you do have to walk along a busy road with lots of traffic, make sure you stay as far back from it as possible. Avoid standing near traffic lights or zebra crossings, as cars emit more exhaust fumes when they’re pulling away.

Steer clear of main roads

If you’re walking to work or if you’re taking the kids to school, try to use quieter roads.
