Air Pollution

What is pollution?
Pollution is the introduction of contaminants into the natural environment that cause adverse change. Pollution can take the form of chemical substances or energy, such as noise, heat or light. However, the most important type of pollution that you should consider for your skin is air pollution.
What is air pollution?
Air pollution occurs when harmful or excessive quantities of substances including gases, particulates, and biological molecules are introduced into Earth’s atmosphere. This makes it difficult for plants, animals and humans to survive as the air becomes dirty. Main sources of air pollution include burning of agricultural activities, exhaust from factories and industries, motor vehicles and indoor air pollution such as household cleaning chemicals.

How can air pollution affect my skin?
Air pollutants damage the skin by inducing oxidative stress. It brings about polluted invisible air particles into the air, which absorbs into the skin and gets trapped with oil and dirt inside the deepest layers of the skin. As a result, pores on the skin gets clogged, which in turn produces acne and various skin troubles.
