If the word ‘pollution’ still hasn’t rung alarm bells in your life, maybe this will. India is home to 22 of the 50 most polluted cities in the world. Yep, that’s right!
Apart from the more well-known ways in which pollution has a direct and dangerous impact on our lives, what most of us don’t realize is how it affects our skin. The air that our skin breathes in is almost as important a determinant as the skincare products that we invest in, if not more. The fun fact here is that for the longest time, I assumed that pollution could only lead to a wee bit of tanning, nothing that my monthly facial couldn’t undo. And I know for a fact that I’m not alone on this bandwagon of ignorance.
Now that we’ve successfully burst your bubble, let’s talk about how air pollution leads to unhealthy skin. Apart from hyperpigmentation, excessive oil production, and skin dullness, exposure to pollution also leads to early signs of aging. There are many solutions to how to protect skin from air pollution, since becoming a recluse or socialising with an anti-pollution mask aren’t feasible options, how about trying something smarter, something that protects your skin without disrupting your usual beauty routine. Meet Nykaa’s latest brainchild, a cosmetic invention that marries anti-pollution skincare with high-definition makeup. 
For the first time in India, we got our hands on the Nykaa SkinShield Anti-Pollution Matte Foundation that has anti-pollution benefits as the highlight of its curriculum vitae. We didn’t take a minute to put this superstar on the job and we’ll tell you why.
  • This creamy formula boasts of triple active action that guards your skin against dust and micro particles. Featuring a combination of three active ingredients, this high-performing shield also acts as an efficient oil-control system.
  • The hero ingredient of this star foundation is Bio Saccharide Gum 4 which does a brilliant job at creating a protective barrier against atmospheric pollution and UV rays. Considered as the best in the global anti-pollution biz, no points for guessing why we’re raving about this base wonder.
  • A rich composition of anti-oxidants and Glycerine ensure that even the deepest layers of your skin stay hydrated while you give pollution a tough time. Providing the necessary moisturization while calling out a war on pollution is no mean feat but trust this double-duty master to nail both roles with utmost ease.
  • This fabulous foundation also has the goodness of Enantia Chlorantha Bark extracts which work towards reducing pore size and curbing excess shine by regulating the sebaceous gland secretions. The result is a satin matte finish that provides medium to high coverage and lasts all day long.
If you thought that’s all there is to this star, hold your breath ‘cause we’re just about reaching the best part. Ranging through a vast palette of 15 shades clubbed into 5 major skin tone brackets, Nykaa sure did keep the best interests of the urban Indian woman in mind. Especially curated for the diverse Indian skin tone, finding your shade was never this easy. Gone are times when you had to settle for an almost-my-shade foundation. We’ve already locked down on our base soulmates, when are you goin’ to say #ThatsMyShade?
