Pollution is harmful to our environment… AND to our skin! What are its effects? And more importantly, how can we protect ourselves? Read on!
Along with traffic jams, pollution is probably one of the biggest inconveniences of urban living. Several elements can impact your skin, such as toxic particles, carbon monoxide, nitrogen oxide emissions from cars and lead from factories.
There are also secondary pollutants, such as ozone, which are created when primary pollutants from stationary (industries and heating) and mobile (transportation) sources are exposed to solar rays and heat.
The quantity and the type of pollutants present in air changes constantly depending on the environment, the climate and meteorological conditions. For example, when it’s cold out and our heating systems are going full blast (wood, gas, etc.) the air becomes filled with tiny particles; when the temperature and humidity rise, the vapor reacts with different pollutants to create smog. Either way, your skin doesn’t like it!
Pollution doesn’t just dirty your face on the surface. By accumulating on your skin, toxins block your pores and reduce oxygenation. The result: your skin suffocates, loses its shine and imperfections begin to appear. What’s more, when your skin comes into contact with pollution,it leads to the creation of free radicals, unstable molecules caused by cellular oxidation, accelerating the aging of your skin.
One last negative effect, but certainly not the least, is that because pollution aggresses your skin daily, it wears down your skin’s natural barrier (a.k.a. hydrolipid film). Because your skin has lost that protection, it becomes more reactive, increasing its vulnerability. And a vicious circle ensues. Here are some of the effects that you may notice:
