POLLUTION

It has long been reported that pollution affects internal organs, and as of late, experts are taking a closer look at how unhealthy air quality takes its toll on skin as well. In fact, in 2014 the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) noted that over 142 million Americans- about 40% of the population- live in areas where the air quality falls short of the National Ambient Air Quality Standards. These pollutants include particulate matter (PM), carbon monoxide, ozone, nitrogen dioxide and sulfur dioxide, plus indoor matter such as dirt and dust. According to Karen Asquith, national director of education for M.G Collin. “The skin can absorb up to 1,400 different pollutants per week- none of which are beneficial” she says. “Pollution particles are smaller than the pores and are therefore capable of penetrating the skin barrier. A study on the impact of chronic pollution on the skin demonstrated an increase in signs of premature aging, particularly in younger people. the severity of wrinkles on the forehead and crow’s feet increased faster for women and men exposed to pollution, and was even worse for individuals with predisposition to sensitive skin.
