While living in the city is fun and exciting, it certainly has its drawbacks. For one, air pollution is almost inescapable and it's no secret that exposure to air pollution has damaging effects — especially on our skin. The good news is, it doesn't mean that we're completely helpless in dealing with the negative effects of smog, smoke and other harmful substances in the air. Recently, various beauty brands are releasing anti-pollution lines to help us shield our skin. Ahead, some of the most promising products that can help your skin win the battle against air pollution.

It's not just skincare that can shield skin from environmental pollution, choosing the right makeup can also help. Lancôme recognises this, so they came up with an improved formula for their well-beloved Lancôme Blanc Expert cushion. Now, it comes with four new ingredients renowned for their antioxidant properties, particularly Moringa extract and Baicalin, which shields against oxidative stress and pollution particles that adhere to skin.
