The COVID-19 pandemic has brought about many changes in how we live our daily lives. Among many things, office work can now be done remotely at home, meetings no longer have to be face to face, and the regular essentials can now be accessed through just a few taps on the phone. On top of these changes, the prioritization of health may be one of the best shifts. In most everything, health has become the top consideration. And this includes daily skincare.
Basic Skin Care is No Longer Enough
For smart beauties, skin care is more than just a series of steps to prep and make your skin look its best. It’s actually about caring for your skin, making sure that it’s at the top of health, and that it’s protected from the multiple factors that can harm it. These factors include:
- UVA/UVB rays
While sunlight may be good for the body, too much may cause sunburn and may damage the skin. To be more specific, UV rays may penetrate the outer layer of the skin, hit the deeper layers and may damage or kill skin cells. Cell damage leads to premature aging or the early appearance of lines, wrinkles and age spots.
The negative health effects of pollution also affects skin health. Aside from the superficial feeling of dirt on skin, air pollutants are studied to cause oxidative stress or an imbalance in free radicals and antioxidants. Free radicals can do damage to fatty tissue, DNA, and proteins which, over time, can lead to acne, premature skin aging, inflammatory diseases (such as atopic dermatitis, cellulitis and psoriasis), and even skin cancer.
- Blue Light
Not only are too many screens bad for the eyes – they’re also bad for the skin! Frequent exposure to blue light produced by smartphones, tablets, TVs and computer screens may cause skin pigmentation and accelerated skin aging.
These are why, for smart beauties, basic skincare is not enough.
