Pollution: The Silent Enemy of Your Skin

Pollution | The Silent Enemy of your Skin

We all know that pollutants – cigarette smoke, car exhaust fumes, haze particles – cause environmental damage, but they can also cause significant damage to our skin without us realising.

Unlike sunburns, the damage from air pollution to our skin may not cause an immediate response, increasing the danger as we are unaware of it happening.

How is pollution damaging my skin?

Since pollutant particles are so microscopic, – they can be 20 times smaller than your pores! – they can easily penetrate deep into our skin and weaken our skin’s defensive barrier, causing

  1. Accelerated Aging
    Pollutant particles can wreak havoc on our skin by causing free radical damage, fine lines and wrinkles, as well as the breakdown of collagen and elastin layers.
  2. Acne
    Pollution exacerbates clogged pores, which can result in inflamed skin and acne breakouts.
  3. Clogged Pores
    Dust, dirt, and other pollutant particles can clog our pores, causing unsightly whiteheads, blackheads, and comedones.
  4. Dull Complexion
    An accumulation of pollutants on our skin’s surface can diminish our skin’s radiance, making it look dull.
  5. Pigmentation
    Free radical damage from traffic-related air pollution has been scientifically proven to cause melasma and age spots.
  6. UV Damage
    Pollution causes damage to the ozone layer, making us more vulnerable to UV damage from sun exposure, giving rise to free radical damage and oxidative stress to the skin.

Help! What can I do to save my skin?

We offer a variety of targeted, non-surgical treatments to treat each of the problems pollution can do to our skin:
