Climate Changes and its Effects on Skin:
High Temperatures with High Stakes.
The climate changes and its effects on our skin.
It’s getting hot in here!
I mean on this planet!
Climate change has become the flavor of the month on the tip of everyone’s tongue!
Our Instagram feeds are flooded with young Gen Z-ers splashing fruit and soup at priceless masterpieces to make a statement, while others handcuff themselves to banks to shed light on the matter – but expression is relative, I guess.
In the midst of melting ice-burgs and Indian Summers in December, we tend to look outside versus look within or at ourselves, with all the environmental factors making headlines – that’s the least one could do!
However, take a moment and reflect – I know it sounds like a Pinterest quote but, hear me out!
Climate change has led to an increase in UV radiation and environmental pollutants, causing free radical damage.
Free radicals? Sounds like a movement of people called radicals that need free-ing, doesn’t it?
But it’s not!
Free radicals are basically unstable atoms that can damage cells, causing illness and aging!
So climate change does that!
According to a study in 2019, “air pollution increases oxidative stress in the skin and results in or worsens premature skin aging.” (Ref: How Climate Change Can Impact the Health of Your Skin, Plus What to Do About It.

In a nutshell, we’re aging faster – thanks recklessness!
While we’re trying to reverse our mistakes, medicine and skincare have been evolving to reverse the hands of time.
From Botox to medical facials and surgeries, you can take it easy on your skin, while you’re taking it easy on our planet.
There are services that cater to your skin in the middle of this climate change – because like us, our skins are picky with their treatment.
