Research - Air Pollution and Dust

  • The Role of Air Pollutants in Atopic Dermatitis

    A 2014 article from the Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology (vol 134, no 5, p.993) linking air pollution irritants to outbreaks of Atopic Dermatitis, including skin conditions like Eczema and Psoriasis. The study calls for more research on the exact mechanisms through which air pollution can worsen these skin conditions.

  • Air pollution, Autophagy and Skin Aging

    From the Journal of Investigative Dermatology (vol 138, no 9, p.B24), a 2018 study summary discussing the negative effects of air pollution on autophagy ‚Äď one of our bodies‚Äô natural cell regeneration processes. The authors conclude that air pollution damages Fibroblasts ‚Äď the cells in our connective tissue that produce collagen and other fibers ‚Äď which, in turn, disrupts the autophagy process.

  • Contribution of Pollution in Premature Skin Aging - A Clinical Study

    A 2017 study summary from the Journal of Investigative Dermatology (vol 137, no 10, p.1016) examining how sunlight exposure combines with urban air pollution to accelerate skin damage in city populations aged 25-45 years.

  • How to Manage Sensitive Skin in a Polluted Environment

    A 2017 study summary from the Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology (vol 76, no 6, p.AB158) demonstrating the effectiveness of a skin care regimen aimed at reducing the effects of air pollution on the skin. The authors conclude such regimens significantly reduce the negative effects of oxidative stress in the skin.

  • Airborne Particle Exposure and Skin Aging

    A 2010 article from the Journal of Investigative Dermatology (vol 130, p.2719) detailing the damage caused by outside environmental factors. The authors measure damage against the natural aging process in 400 elderly women living in a city environment. They found traffic pollution had significantly accelerated skin damage over time.

  • The Impact of Pollution on the Skin

    An January 02, 2018 article from MD Magazine giving advice to beat back the effects of air pollution, including fine particulate matter. Because air pollution causes oxidative stress, our bodies’ production of Reactive Oxygen Species, or ROS, increases. These ROS, which include newly formed free radicals, then overwhelm our bodies’ own antioxidant network by inflicting sustained damage over time. To fight back, the author recommends a daily regimen of: Double Cleansing, Skin Hydration, Sunscreen Protection, and Topical Antioxidants.
