EFFECTS OF AIR POLLUTION ON SKIN

Air pollution has a wide range of sources, the most common include cigarette smoke, dust, smog, and car exhaust. These sources contain tiny particles that can actually penetrate the skin’s barrier and cause problems, including:

  • decreased moisture and elasticity
  • acne
  • dull and dry skin
  • eczema
  • skin allergies
  • rashes
  • wrinkles

Air pollution particles can speed up the normal aging process. While loosing some moisture and elasticity is a part of natural process pollution can starve the skin of oxygen and dry the skin’s natural oils. Some forms of pollution can even create free radicals, which can alter the very DNA of the skin cells, leading to cancer. This is what causes additional damage.For all skin,hair and nail ailments visit our clinics at Malad,Juhu and Bandra in Mumbai.Call 9004839333.
