Four Ways Pollution is Affecting Your Skin

Four Ways Pollution is Affecting Your Skin

10/11/2021 Beauty Tips

It has been long established that air pollution can damage our skin and manifest as serious skin issues. One of the many factors our skin has to contend with is air pollutants, which originate from heat and vehicle emissions. These pollutants are released in the form of matters such as dust, smoke, fog or smaller specs that cannot be seen by the naked eye.

Here are four ways pollution could be affecting your skin.

1. Dull skin

Exposure to pollutants can put the natural protective layer of your skin at risk of developing issues such as wrinkles, dark spots and a dull, uneven skin tone, to name a few. Some of these pollutants are so small that they can penetrate the skin through the pores, potentially causing dehydration and inflammation.

2. Premature ageing

A lack of protection from pollutants can break down your skin’s collagen levels, causing signs of premature ageing such as wrinkles, redness and loss of skin firmness and elasticity. Studies have revealed that women who reside in urban areas have skin that is up to ten percent older than that of women who do not reside in urban areas.

3. Dry skin

Although our skin acts as a natural shield against harmful chemicals and air pollutants, the repetitive or prolonged exposure to high levels of these pollutants can have profound effects on the skin. Women with sensitive skin, as well as those suffering from eczema and other inflammatory skin diseases, are more prone to the effects of air pollution as they have a weak skin barrier to begin with, making it even more important to ensure their skin is protected.

4. Uneven pigmentation

Prolonged exposure to the sun, especially with no sunscreen, can be another reason why your skin may be suffering. In an attempt to protect itself from the harmful effects of the sun, your skin increases the production of brown pigment called melanin. This extra melanin makes your complexion appear darker. Often, the sun can cause an irregular increase in melanin production, resulting in uneven pigmentation of the skin. It can also result in the permanent stretching of small blood vessels, creating a reddish, mottled appearance on your skin.
