Is the haze causing your skin to look dull and lacklustre? Here are three simple ways to combat the haze and take charge of your skin's health.
With the haze literally in our faces, our skins needs extra TLC. While you’re busy putting on your N95 mask to shield yourself, have you neglected your precious skin?
According to Teri Tay, Dermalogica Singapore Education Manager, “Polluted air also means the increase of free radicals within the atmosphere. For every two hours of exposure to UV and free radicals, our skin depletes its reserve of Vitamin E by 25%.”
Haze, along with dust particles, contributes to pore-clogging, building up on impurities which results in blackheads, whiteheads and eventually pimples!
Here are three simple steps on what you can do, (and where you can find suitable products) to haze-proof your skin effectively.
Step 1: Cleanse, cleanse, cleanse
The wise adage “In this world, there are no ugly women, only lazy women” strikes true even today. Honestly, how many of us are guilty of sleeping with our makeup on?
Makeup, along with environmental aggressors such as pollution and UV rays, hormones, dead skin cells, excess sebum, bacteria and accumulation of skin stressors, contribute to accelerating aging of the skin.
Makeup cleansers, removers and exfoliators are your skin’s best bet to help remove impurities of the daily grime you’re exposed to.

The smooth jelly spreads on easily, removing even waterproof mascara, and cushions the skin from an otherwise harsh cleansing motion.
