Are you too suffering from the apocalyptic smog and pollution haze set over the city? Is your skin also feeling parched, lifeless and sans glow because of being beaten down by the pollution?

As we bustle in our daily lives, pollution has become an inevitable part of our lives. Increasingly, environmental pollutants not only take a toll on our health and body but also damage our skin, which leads to various skin issues. This problem increases even more in winter and in times of rising air pollution. As the air becomes dirty with dust and pollution, it will affect our skin too. These pollutants attack our skin, snatch away its natural balance, and make it dry and dull. Our clogged pores then lead to pimples, acne and worsened breakouts.

Protecting your skin from these harmful effects of pollution is essential and you don’t even need to rely on expensive skin care products.DIY face packs which are made from natural ingredients can help you a lot and you know what, these face packs can be cost effective too.
