SKINCEUTICALS ANNOUNCES A BREAKTHROUGH IN ATMOSPHERIC SKIN AGING
While a lot of people might be familiar with how the sun and pollution can damage skin, ozone pollution is another aggressor that damages skin.
Atmospheric Skin Aging is a collective term for the effects of atmospheric aggressors like UVA/UVB rays, infrared rays, and ground-level ozone pollution on skin.
Ozone pollution damage appears in skin as excess oiliness, rough texture, and increased sensitivity. It also oxidizes lipids and depletes skin’s natural antioxidant reservoir, triggering a progressive cascade of damage that may contribute to signs of skin aging.
According to the American Lung Association’s annual “State of the Air” report in 2017, nearly 40% of people in the USA have unhealthful levels of either ozone or particle pollution.
Dr. Craig Teller, one of the flagship dermatologists for SkinCeuticals tells us about the latest research and findings.
There are some new findings that were just published in the June 2017 issue of Journal of Investigative Dermatology, showing that exposure to ozone pollution causes affects that may lead to signs of skin aging.
They show that after being exposed to ozone equivalent to pollution in a major city, subjects saw a significant reduction in key, skin indicators related to full and healthy skin appearance.
In partnership with Professor Giuseppe Valacchi from the University of Ferrara, Italy, a leading researcher in the study of ozone SkinCeuticals studied the effects of pollution on human skin. While
scientists have long suspected the detrimental effects of pollution on skin, this study from SkinCeuticals is its first to quantify the impact of pollution on real people, instead of just in a petri dish.
WHAT SHOULD PEOPLE DO TO PROTECT THEIR SKIN AND HELP PREVENT FURTHER DAMAGE?
The study we are talking about conducted in human skin (in-vivo) demonstrates that the pretreatment with CEF or PCF significantly prevented the ozone induced skin problems due to neutralization of free radicals on the upper layers of skin.
Antioxidants are just one part of a comprehensive Prevent + Protect regimen. In order to protect skin against the full spectrum of environmental threats, a sunscreen is crucial, as well. When used together, SkinCeuticals antioxidants C E Ferulic and Phloretin CF and broad-spectrum sunscreens provide a complementary approach against visible skin aging caused by UVA/UVB rays, IR-A, and ozone pollution exposure.
