A thing of beauty is a joy forever. Well said, Mr Keats. If only people could realise the essence of this simple yet deep thought and apply it to their lives. But no, no, no, no. When you have a million other things running inside your head, who cares about what’s on the outside. You should, though.
With the insane rise in pollution levels these days, thanks to more and more industries being set up and the easily affordable motor vehicles which were once considered a luxury but are now a necessity, it is really important to understand that as soon as you step outside the house, the climate is slowly and steadily eating your face alive and the first thing someone looks at when you meet them is your face only. When your face comes in contact with the air full of dust particles and uncountable chemicals, it begins to lose its true self and could even catch harmful infections.
Now don’t lose heart. We have got you covered. Here are six ways in which you can protect your face from the harmful effects of pollution and go outdoors without any fear:-
