City gals, it's time you knew: Pollution stands between you and your skincare goals. Everything from car exhaust and industrial waste to smoke from fires and even stovetop fumes can contribute to skin symptoms like inflammation, hyper-pigmentation, wrinkles, dullness, and dark circles.

But by using ingredients like ceramides that boost the body's natural protection from external nasties, you can get your anti-aging regimen on track. Read on to learn about 11 ingredients that experts recommend for the ultimate anti-pollution skincare routine.
