Is Global Warming Impacting your skin?
Global warming and climate change are buzz words that have becoming extremely important today.

The severity and inconsistency of weather patterns definitely affects our skin. Warmer temperatures mean that people end up spending more time outside that leads to higher UV exposure, as well as flares of conditions such as rosacea. The depletion of the ozone layer caused by global warming could further exacerbate this by increasing melanoma and skin cancer rates, according to The World Health Organisation (WHO). Some direct effects include –
• Rapid skin ageing
• Skin cancer
To protect yourself from these long-term problems, it is vital to use a broad spectrum sunscreen daily with minimum SPF 30. Also remember to use it on areas that people tend to forget, such as the neck, back of your hands, and ears. Use antioxidant rich products such as Brighten & Perfect 10% Vitamin C Corrective Serum that protects skin as well as brightens dark spots and pigmentation. Follow this with Hydrate & Nourish Age Defence Retinol Day Moisturiser SPF 30 that hydrates skin while providing UV protection and has anti-ageing benefits thanks to the presence of encapsulated Retinol.
Another factor that affects skin is the sudden change in temperature it faces as you move from the cold outdoors into a heated building and vice versa. This change in temperature causes rapid expansion and contraction of our face capillaries in the face to expand and contract rapidly, resulting in broken veins and redness.
