The skin is exposed on a daily basis to UV radiation and environmental pollution such as volatile organic compounds, cigarette smoke, ozone, and particulate matter (PM). Major effects on human skin have been linked with air pollution, and more particularly with PM.

Repetitive and prolonged exposure to environmental particulate pollution acts synergistically with UV exposure to exert negative consequences on skin… This potentially can lead to increased visible photodamage and skin aging, allergic and inflammatory conditions, and even skin cancers.
