Pollution-Proof Skin

How to shield the skin from environmental damage.

Smog, sun, and dirt wreak havoc on the skin. Most of the time, clients are unaware of the damaging particles absorbed by skin daily because they are tiny and microscopic. Though small, they can cause dry, dull, lifeless skin with continued exposure. By educating clients on pollution-proofing skin, they can enjoy immediate results while protecting their skin from long-term damage.

What is Air Pollution? 

Pollution in the air comes from daily human activity and can include exhaust fumes, petroleum release, and even cigarette smoke. Areas with a large population density (think New York) have the most air pollution, often covered by a large cloud of smog. While your clients probably don’t think about the air coming into contact with their skin, it’s likely the reason they suffer from dryness or other skin conditions like acne and fine lines.

Digital Pollution: Is That a Thing?

Besides air and sun, digital devices also affect the skin’s health. If you have clients that work from home or heavily use computers or cell phones, their skin may be overexposed to blue light. Though this is not a pollutant, continued exposure can cause damage to the skin, draining it of moisture and damaging surface layers.

Pollution’s Effect on Skin 

Pollution is a cause for concern for the skin, causing free radical damage. This damage penetrates the deepest layers of the skin, forming deep wrinkles and causing clogged pores and breakouts. The free radicals exposed to skin strip away healthy oils that moisturize and create a dry, dull, and lifeless complexion.
