Our skin is the largest organ in our body and serves as a protective barrier against external environmental factors. External factors such as air quality, pollution, UV rays, sunshine hours, average winter temperatures, and humidity can all impact our skin's health. By understanding these factors, we can make informed decisions about how to care for our skin.
Air quality is an important factor to consider when it comes to skin health. Poor air quality can cause skin irritation, dryness, and premature aging.
Pollution can have a significant impact on our skin's health. Exposure to pollutants such as particulate matter, ozone, and nitrogen dioxide can cause skin irritation, inflammation, and premature aging.
Exposure to UV rays from the sun can cause skin damage, including sunburn, skin cancer, and premature aging. To reduce your exposure to harmful UV rays, use a sunscreen whether it’s sunny or cloudy.

Sunshine hours impact our skin's health by affecting our vitamin D levels. Vitamin D is important for healthy skin, but too much exposure to the sun can cause skin damage.
Average Winter Temperatures
Cold temperatures and low humidity can cause dryness and irritation to our skin. Make sure to mositurize your face and body in the winter to add moisture back into your skin.

Humidity can impact our skin's health by affecting our skin's moisture levels. High humidity can cause our skin to become oily, while low humidity can cause our skin to become dry.
