If you want healthy, glowing skin, the best place to start is with a healthy lifestyle and an excellent skin care routine. Nutritious food and adequate sleep are the building blocks for healthy skin. However, there is one often-overlooked factor in skin care that might be affecting the health of your skin—pollution.
According to A Woman’s Health, healthy skin starts from the inside out, but skin damage can start from the outside in. Smog, dust, dirt, and other particulates in the air pose risks to the skin, your largest organ. Short of staying indoors or donning a biohazard suit, there are steps you can take to shield your skin and reduce the consequences of pollution.
Unless you live high in the Himalayan Mountains, you most likely encounter some sort of pollution every day. The diminishing ozone has led to increased exposure to ultraviolet (UV) rays and, as a result, increased rates of melanoma. Furthermore, the air is filled with all sorts of pollutants, such as cigarette smoke, car exhaust, smog, dirt, dust, and other particulates. These pollutants increase the levels of free radicals produced by the body. Free radicals are unstable molecules that attack human cells and damage DNA. They lead to aging, tissue damage, and possible disease.
Free radicals are everywhere—in the air we breathe, the foods we eat, sunlight, and pollution. In fact, recent research indicates that the average person inhales about 300 cigarettes’ worth of persistent free radicals (PFRs) each day. PFRs are free radicals similar to those found in cigarettes and appear to be pervasive in the environment.
