Is Environmental Pollution Causing You to Age?
With millions of people packed into a tiny space and countless cars, buses, and trucks giving off exhaust at all hours of the day, it’s no surprise that New York City’s air isn’t the cleanest you’ll find. While many Manhattan residents have concerns about how the city’s air quality affects their lungs, there’s yet another sneaky way pollution may be attacking your body: research shows that environmental pollution is a major cause of skin damage and premature aging. If you’re eager to have great-looking skin, but aren’t ready to leave New York behind, there are plenty of ways you can combat the pollutants that are causing your skin to wrinkle, break out, and look dull.
According to a study published in Dermatology Research and Practice, being exposed to free radicals in our environment, many of which are caused by pollution, can prevent our skin from properly healing itself. When exposure to pollution is an everyday occurrence, your skin doesn’t get enough of a break from trying to fight off those toxins, thus damaging skin’s DNA and causing it to age prematurely. While there may not be a magic potion that can rid our air of pollution and free radicals, there are ways you can fight back, and, in doing so, slow down the aging process.
Providing your skin with healthy air can help you achieve a more beautiful complexion, lineless complexion in virtually no time. Treatments, like Flawless Skin Solutions’ Oxygen Facial, can start to reverse the damage caused by environmental toxins by dousing skin with healing 98% pure hyperbaric oxygen. When combined with a potent serum packed with antioxidants, this oxygen-rich treatment helps skin start to repair and turn back the clock, taking wrinkles, fine lines, and crow’s feet with it.
We may not be able to win the fight against environmental pollution alone, but we can change the way it affects our skin. Employing treatments that provide our skin with pure oxygen is the first step toward a healthier, younger-looking tomorrow.
