Environmental conditions, such as pollution, fuel and emissions can begin to break down your skin’s barriers; causing noticeable differences in how it looks and feels. Dr Siún Murphy at Dublin’s Blackrock Clinic explains “Many environmental pollutants are small enough to enter the skin and essentially wreak havoc on our skin’s barrier system and cause damage at a structural level” (Ruth Griffin, April 2019). For example, Nitrogen dioxide gas from car exhausts and toxic oily molecules measure 2.5 micrometres, that’s one 400th of a millimetre, so 20 times smaller than the diameter of a skin pore (Katie Thomas, May 2019).
So it’s no wonder that they easily gain entry into your skin wreak havoc on our skin’s barrier system and cause damage at a structural level. Pollution really is the silent aggressor for the skin, it seeps deep down into your skin speeding up the deterioration of your cells and premature ageing (Katie Thomas, May 2019). Accelerated ageing, pigmentation, discolouration and premature ageing. Pollution essentially causes an inflammatory response in the skin, exacerbating skin issues such as rosacea and acne (Ruth Griffin, April 2019).
