Myth: Air Quality Doesn’t Impact Skin Health
Although it may not be top of mind, the environment and air quality influence skin health and skin aging tremendously. If you live in a city with a significant level of air pollution, it could be contributing to premature skin aging, age spots, fine lines and wrinkles! Solar Ultra Radiation, Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, nitrogen oxides, volatile organic compounds and cigarette smoke are some of the air pollutants that can have a significant effect on the complexion. Smog particles in particular settle onto the skin, increasing inflammation and triggering skin pigmentation, acne and allergic skin conditions like dermatitis and eczema. It can also cause dehydration in our skin and is known for breaking down collagen and elastic, causing skin to lose elasticity.
To help restore and protect the skin from environmental damage, it’s recommended to use these Lancer favorites:
