How to take care of your skin with the rising pollution

Summer might be welcoming for many, with warmers going back to the trunk and blankets folded and pushed back in the cupboard. But with summer, the warmth of the sun starts feeling discomforting with the skin being all sweaty and irritating out in the heat. Summertime pollution spikes up due to arid weather giving way to more dust into the air. Therefore, it becomes imperative to take up some measures to protect the skin from the ever-rising global warming and the consequences of it. The polluted air makes it difficult for the skin to breathe, causing it to become irritated and dehydrated, aggravating pre-existing conditions such as redness, rosacea, and eczema.

Hydration is the key


Drink plenty of water; you can make detox water at home using fruits rich in water content like watermelon or pomegranate, which will aid in the removal of toxins and provide important antioxidants. It can help you achieve your skin goals and provide you with glowing, supple, well-hydrated skin.

Don’t Forget Your Sunscreen

Use sunscreen or stick to a skincare routine (a serum or daily moisturiser) to build layers of protection on top, as this protects the skin from UV-induced damage and also traps dust particles and stops the harmful chemicals from getting deeply into the skin. Face should be washed in cold water with a non-exfoliating face wash to get rid of dirt.



It helps your skin recuperate and heal from the negative impacts of pollution if you scrub for just 10 seconds each day. Inflammation is brought on by the chemicals generated by pollution in the air. The morning and evening cleaning with Vega Facial Brush is therefore essential for skin care. Cleanse, twice, or even thrice, if necessary, especially at night, before going to bed to get rid of any leftover particles on your skin.

Wash it off

Once a week, pamper your skin with essential oils like coconut or almond oil followed by a warm soothing bath. Add a few drops of lavender or orange oil to your hot steam water for a hint of renewal. Get hold of Vega Bristle Bath Brush With Massager made of 100% natural ingredients that help in gently exfoliating your skin and at the same time comforting it with a subtle massage.

Moisturize as often as you can

As we have mentioned, pollution results in a skin that looks dull and lifeless. Thus, using moisturizers to hydrate the skin is of utmost importance. Twice a week, apply cocoa butter paste to the skin to nourish it deeply. Olive oil also contains significant amounts of vitamin E and antioxidants, which help to regenerate cells and lessen the appearance of damage. You can also go for summer-friendly mild moisturizers that don’t feel sticky or add to sweating, instead absorbs fast and locks moisture.

Additional care tips

Care for your skin just the way a mother takes care of its baby. Better the skin, better the glow and better the confidence to face the world.

  • Make sure to eat food that soothes your gut and drinks that cool down your body as feeding good internally would result in better glow of the skin for any given season.
  • Use vegan makeup or clinically tested makeup made up of ingredients that don’t irritate your skin’s surface which can otherwise lead to inflammation and rashes when exposed out in the sun.
  • Stay indoors as much as you can, or if you are stepping out make sure to wrap a scarf around your face and wear loosely fitted clothes so that your skin breathes right and prevent from sweating.
