Pollution is a Skin Health Problem

Did you know that pollution affects your skin? Toxic chemicals attach to pollutants and sink deep into skin causing premature aging, damage, dullness, and acne. With the growing concern of a pollution problem, it’s important that we understand the effects pollution has on our skin. 

According to National Geographic, pollution is the introduction of harmful materials into the environment. These materials create free radicals on the skin, which cause direct damage to our skin’s DNA, thus resulting in accelerated skin aging. Our skin acts as a natural barrier against external factors but pollution hurts this barrier by breaking down collagen and the lipids contained within it. Collagen is the protein that produces skin’s elasticity and research has shown that certain chemicals and particles in pollution can stunt the production resulting in premature aging.   

Most of us underestimate the impact of pollution on our skin. The truth is, pollution levels across the globe are increasing and our skin is/will be affected. There is a connection between increases in air pollution and increases in skin problems such as acne, rashes, and diseases like chronic eczema. People living in cities with bad pollution may also experience consistent dry, flaky skin.

Rejuvaskin has created two products to help your skin combat pollution:

First, our Anti-Pollution Facial Cleanser is a powerful product packed with ingredients specifically designed to protect your skin from the damaging pollution it encounters every day. For those living and conducting business in large cities, please consider adding this product to your portfolio. 

Second, our Skin Recovery Cream just received certification from the U.S. National Eczema Association. Places with high pollution exposure have been linked to worsening symptoms and increased eczema rates in population studies. This cream is soothing and non-greasy to people battling eczema symptoms caused by pollution.
