Clean Slate

Just like UV rays, pollution can damage the skin by inducing oxidative stress. Thankfully, tackling air toxins on your face can be as simple as using the right cleanser every day. Part of the Montreal-based brand’s new pollution-fighting CiTY line, Marcelle’s micellar cleansing water clears away makeup and polluting particles without drying your skin.

Bar None

Earth Luxe’s handmade soaps will make a lovely addition to your shower line-up and leave you feeling soft and clean. The recently launched Canadian wellness brand sources fresh ingredients from local farmers to craft its soap bars, combining the likes of black raspberries and vanilla with natural butters and oils for a product that smells — and feels — as good as it looks.
