The Effects of Indoor Air Pollution and Your Skin

When individuals consider maintaining healthy skin, they often focus on two primary strategies for improvement: using skin products to preserve the health of one’s skin and limiting exposure to abrasive contaminants or the elements that can degrade the health of one’s skin. Take, for instance, skincare products. Today, individuals spend $500 a year on skin care products, resulting in 1.68 billion dollars spent on skincare annually in the United States alone. 

This massive industry does provide many benefits for improving the health and appearance of one’s skin. However, are there other things people can do to improve the health and well-being of one’s skin? Based on research, the resounding answer is yes. 

You may not realize but that the air quality of your home or workplace may be negatively impacting the health of your skin. Our skin acts as a protective layer to the outside elements. It’s home to thousands of species of microbiota or skin flora that live on the skin and preserve healthy oils, and if perfectly fit to be resilient to the elements. 

Unfortunately, when our skin is under excessive distress due to exterior chemicals or airborne irritants, it can suffer damage. This is where the real challenge arises. Often, a person may not even realize that they are slowly damaging their skin simply by exposing themselves to so-called “normal” home or working conditions. To address this issue in more detail we’ve put together a list of common symptoms that may show unintentional harm or stress put on the skin by airborne contaminants. 

Symptoms of Airborne Contaminants Negatively Affecting the Skin

  • Dry, itchy, or scaly skin
  • Red patchy skin, rosacea, red blotchiness
  • Excessive oils or consistent acne breakouts
  • Hives, rashes
  • Eczema, psoriasis
