5 Ways to Tackle the Visibility of Skin Pollution

5 Ways to Tackle the Visibility of Skin Pollution

Pollution has constantly been plaguing our environment, but how does that translate to our skin?

Well, pollution particles can infiltrate the skin’s layers and produce oxidative stress. This weakens the skin barrier and can lead to inflammation, making it more vulnerable to problems. In addition, a lack of protection from these particles can lead to premature skin aging in the form of skin pigmentation issues, uneven skin tone, and the development of wrinkles.

Small enough to pass through our skin and cause havoc in our cells, pollution particles may not be apparent to the naked eye. For example, air pollution, such as that emitted by automobiles and industry, can contribute to the appearance of age spots. In addition, melanin buildup in the body is caused by pollution because it triggers the immune system to create more of it.

So, what are the best ways to keep your skin looking clean and free of skin pollution? Keep on reading to find out how with Celestolite!

Get Cleansing to Clear Your Skin’s Surface of Pollutants 

Washing your face is probably the easiest (not to mention, cheapest) step you can take to prevent all of that pollution from wreaking havoc on your skin. Washing your face, especially at night, is essential to avoid breakouts. Why? Because it removes debris and grime, including pollutants, from the surface of your skin.

Choosing the Best Cleanser

That’s why you need to incorporate a gentle cleanser into your routine to prevent the visibility of skin pollution from getting worse. The Celestolite Estrella Cleansing Mousse is a fantastic product because it contains glycerin, a humectant with moisture-binding properties.

Having glycerin in this product’s formulation also means that this is not an over-drying cleanser. It indicates that this facewash will not be too harsh on your skin, so that you can use it in the morning and at night too!

Cover Up With UV Protection

Trust us when we say this: the second easiest step to combat the visibility of skin pollution is slathering on that SPF. While it won’t solve the problem of skin pollution, it can protect your skin from extra harm caused by the ultraviolet (UV) rays from the sun.

But wait, how do UV rays and pollution correlate, you ask? Well, the answer is simple. In a nutshell, another way pollution affects the Earth is through the thinning of the ozone layer. Through this, harmful UV rays shine onto the planet, causing serious harm over time.

UVA and UVB are two types of UV radiation that we face daily. The ultraviolet A (UVA) photons have a long wavelength and can reach the deepest layers of skin. Premature skin aging, wrinkles, and several types of skin cancer have been linked to unprotected exposure to UVA rays. The outermost layer of skin, on the other hand, can be penetrated by UVB radiation. The DNA of your skin cells is damaged directly by these UVB rays, more so than by UVAs. This is why they are thought to be the primary cause of most skin malignancies, like cancer.

Most sunscreens protect your skin only against UVB rays, which is surprising. So instead, use a broad-spectrum or “multi-spectrum” sunscreen that shields you from both UVB and UVA rays. Reapply it several times during the day for maximum protection.
