And so, Singapore finds itself in the thick of haze season once more. With the PSI numbers showing no signs of going back to the green in a bit, everyone is rushing to stockpile heavy-duty N95 masks to guard against the haze’s rampage.
Here’s the kicker: poor air quality and pollution do not just wreak havoc on your physical health, but your skin as well. Your skin is the largest organ in your body and has a far larger surface area that comes into contact with the aggressive pollutants currently clouding our air. An N95 mask is not a panacea for the skin woes that will occur throughout haze season.
To mitigate dryness, exacerbated skin ageing and breakouts caused by pollution, we pick out some of the best anti-haze skincare products on the market right now. The next time you bop to a pharmacy to hoard respiratory masks, make a detour to your nearest skincare store to stock up on these goodies too.
