Many studies conducted over the last decade have directly linked pollutants and various skin conditions like premature skin aging, ...pimple breakouts, and eczema. This works because the pollutants infiltrate the skin cell membranes and make their way into the body through diffusion. The intake of the pollutants by the skin causes the body to secrete free radicals that can cause an imbalance.
Our bodies naturally produce antioxidants that fight these free radicals. However, prolonged exposure to pollution and fumes means that the skin’s antioxidants will be depleted, and so will other essential vitamins such as C and E. This will therefore lead to inflammation, which will destroy the skin barrier and eventually damage the skin.
Ultimately, a person affected by such impurities will have wrinkles, sunburn, moisture loss, and prematurely aged skin.
Here are the primary outdoor pollutants as listed by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA):
• Carbon monoxide
• Nitrogen dioxide
• Heavy metals
• Particulate matter
• Sulfur dioxide
How anti-pollution skincare protects the skin
Skincare companies have researched how anti-pollution skincare products shield people from harmful environmental factors. However, it is a common conclusion that skincare products with the goodness of anti-pollution protect the skin from multiple sources of damage, including environmental pollutants.
Here are some ways in which these products work:
The anti-effluence products contain antioxidants that fight free radicals before they cause any harm to the body. Some researchers claim that they help in correcting skin damage caused by pollution.
Vitamin C is an antioxidant that is common in many beauty products. When infused with serum and niacinamide, it has been known to reduce dark spots and maintain a more substantial skin barrier.
Other antioxidants include:
UV rays penetrate the skin, thus causing collagen to break down rapidly than normal, resulting in the abnormal build-up of elastin. As a result, the individual will have wrinkles, saggy skin, and cellular damage, increasing cancer risk. However, applying sunscreen helps reduce your exposure to harmful sun rays that damage the skin. Look for one with an SPF of 30 or above. That will provide a physical barrier to both pollutants and UV rays.
The moisturization helps strengthen the skin barrier and minimize the odds of air pollutants entering the skin, which causes oxidative stress that damages the skin.
Our experts recommend the following products:
• Hyaluronic acid- is a vital building block of the skin. It maintains moisture and preserves the skin barrier.
• Ceramides- has active ingredients, which boost the skin barrier function. Fewer pollutants will permeate.
• Prebiotics and probiotics. Pollution damages the skin’s microbiome. These are microorganisms and bacteria that stay on the skin to enhance skin health. Products with microbiome skin care restore balance and strength to the skin.
