LIVING ENVIRONMENT AND YOUR SKIN
The skin is one of the most important parts of the body. The skin protects the body from harmful external factors, including the environment.
The environment around us can affect our skin in many ways: from causing dry, peeling, irritated skin to even skin cancer.
In this article, Mornington Spa will show you about the effects of the living environment on the skin, ways to protect the skin from the harmful effects of the living environment and some tips to keep in mind.
Here are some harmful effects of the living environment on the skin:
Sunlight: UV rays from the sun can destroy collagen and elastin - proteins that help keep skin firm and elastic. This can lead to wrinkled, sagging and less firm skin. UV rays can also stimulate the production of melanin, the pigment that gives skin color. This can lead to melasma, freckles and dark skin. UV rays are the main cause of skin cancer, including squamous cell carcinoma and basal cell carcinoma.
Environmental pollution: Air pollution, water pollution and soil pollution can cause skin irritation, acne and other dermatological problems. Air pollution can make skin dry, itchy and irritated. Water pollution can cause acne and other dermatological problems. Soil pollution can cause dermatological problems, such as eczema and psoriasis.
Changes in temperature and humidity: Changes in temperature and humidity can make skin dry, flaky or itchy. High temperatures and low humidity can cause skin to become dry and flaky. Low temperatures and high humidity can make the skin itchy and irritated.
Chemicals: Chemicals in cosmetics, cleaning products and the surrounding environment can cause skin irritation. Chemicals in cosmetics, such as fragrances and preservatives, can cause skin irritation. Chemicals in cleaning products, such as Ammonia and Chloride, can cause dry skin and irritation. Chemicals in the surrounding environment, such as cigarette smoke and vehicle exhaust, can cause skin irritation.
To protect your skin from environmental damage, here are some tips to keep in mind:
Use sunscreen with SPF 30+ or higher and reapply every 2 hours or after swimming or sweating.
