Throughout the day, the skin is in contact with atmospheric pollution and more specifically ozone and PM2.5, microscopic fine particles. These pollutants can stick to the skin, and the smallest particles may even penetrate down to the epidermal cells. They alter the integrity of the cutaneous barrier and prevent it from functioning properly. The result: people with sensitive skin suffering from inflammatory skin conditions are faced with further inflammation.
Moreover, the impact of pollutants on the skin is enhanced by UV rays, the sun and even heat. Under their combined effect, the epidermis becomes more sensitive and particles can stick to the skin more easily. As well as exacerbating inflammatory skin conditions, UV rays and pollution also cause dehydration, oxidation, premature aging and the development of pigmentation disorders.
