Changes in the Environment have an impact on the skin

The condition of your skin is influenced not only by your diet and skincare regime but also by the environment you live in. Even beyond temperature and season, there are factors that influence how healthy your skin is. These external conditions play a vital role to define what you need to do to ensure that these environmental factors do not harm your skin.

  • Sun Exposure
  • Skin is especially vulnerable to increasing heat and humidity when exposed to the sun. The UV rays affect your skin adversely which changes the texture and appearance of your skin. Without any adequate protection from the sun, there might be severe damage to your skin like pigmentation, rough skin, wrinkles, freckles, or even skin cancer. Uneven skin tone is the after-effects caused by long-term sun exposure. Collagen and elastin breakdown is also accelerated.

    In order to protect your skin from sun exposure, use SPFs that contain titanium dioxide or zinc oxide, both of which are UV-blocking chemicals. Try a mineral sunscreen to avoid sun damage. PHIMEDY offers various medical-grade skincare products to help you maintain your vibrant and healthy skin, even with all of these environmental factors’ negative effects.

  • Water Quality
  • The water quality in a certain area has the biggest impact on the skin. Alkaline minerals left on the skin by hard water can cause dryness and irritation. This explains why people frequently get skin flare-ups when they visit locations with hard water. The problem with this is that it damages the skin's barrier. This can make skin more sensitive and reactive, as well as exacerbate inflammatory skin diseases like eczema and rosacea. 

    Try to use hydrating cleansers to eliminate this water residue from the skin, and always use a moisturiser to soothe, hydrate, and fundamentally safeguard the skin barrier. This will strengthen the skin barrier and make it more resistant to hard water mineral damage.

  • Pollution
  • Pollution particles are minute, ten to twenty times smaller than human pores, allowing them to penetrate deeper layers of the skin, causing inflammation, acne, rosacea, and skin pigmentation. Because our skin regenerates at night, it's the ideal time to apply an antioxidant serum and protect against free radical damage caused by pollution, stress, and UV exposure throughout the day. 

    It's critical to remove the filth and grime that accumulates on a daily basis. That's why a gentle cleanser should be a part of any healthy skincare routine. You can get a variety of skincare products from the PHIMEDY website.

  • Changes in the Climate
  • Our skin is forced to adapt to extreme temperature and humidity variations due to rapid climate change. Skin adjusts rapidly, but keeping your face moisturised and free of dirt and bacteria can help your skin maintain clear pores and be able to cope with the changes in the climates. With so many different environmental elements influencing your skin's health, it's critical to take preventative measures. 

    You should always wash your face with skin care products with ingredients like glycerin, ceramides, and hyaluronic acid if you want your skin barrier to be as healthy as possible so that essential moisture may be retained. Your skin should feel calm and nourished during the weather change period. 

    Always pay attention to your skin's condition and adjust your skincare routine according to the environmental changes. If you're having any problems, make an appointment with the dermatologist at PHI CLINICS so you can work out a treatment plan together.
