Have you ever thought about what exactly is happening to your skin on a daily basis, and what is causing harm? Today, ageing is showing up faster than ever, and a huge part of the problem is everything you are exposed to during the day, and when you are out and about at night!
The Effects of Pollution on Skin:
There are many different types of pollution, namely: Air pollution, ultraviolet radiation, cigarette smoke, extreme temperatures, carbon monoxide from traffic and artificial light. Scientists have proven that continuous exposure to these culprits leads to faster ageing and your skin also becomes more vulnerable to diseases such as cancer.
Your skin is your main protective barrier to whatever is out there, looking to cause harm. Doctors also use your skin as a diagnostic tool to determine good health as your skin shows what is happening on the outside, but also on the inside. This includes physical and emotional manifestations of diseases and disorders in the making. For example, a grey skin tone can indicate a low oxygen level, yellow skin a liver or kidney related problem and so forth.
How to protect your skin from harmful pollutants:
Load up on anti-oxidants – These lovelies neutralize oxidative stress and offer protection against these poisons. Choose Vit A,C and E and get advice from your health specialist on what the correct dosage would be for your age, weight and dietary needs.
Take a good quality Omega 3 supplement – Omega 3 is probably your most essential nutrient, which you can only obtain by supplementing or eating oily fish in quite large quantities. It acts as an anti-inflammatory and protective measure for cells and their nucleic acids. If your skin is feeling dry, you are most like deficient in this very important nutrient.
Use a Broad-Spectrum UVA and UVB sunscreen, everyday, even when it’s overcast – Even fluorescent lighting can affect the DNA of cells, so don’t be shy when applying your sunscreen. Also remember that a sunscreen is time-dependant, so you will need to reapply every 3-4 hours, depending on what factor you are using. This being said, try not to use a product that contains a SPF level of 35 or more. The chemical content is very high in these, which causes and inflammatory response and even skin allergies or contact dermatitis.
Work on your circulation – all the time!
When your circulation is working well, your body can deal with all sorts of invasions and attacks. Your blood carries vital oxygen and nutrients to your cells, and if your circulation isn’t working well, the oxygen and nutrients won’t get to the very superficial skin cells. This is detrimental because these are the cells being exposed first.
