The 2018 Health Trend that is Worth the Hype

The skincare craze of 2017 was a time of dewy skin and fancy Korean products. Both men and women have scoured every stall and every shop to find products that can elevate their skin to pure flawlessness. But how do we maintain perfect skin when dirt just constantly contaminates our face?

Now that pollutants are dominating the world and damaging the skin that we’ve slivered countless products on, the craze heightened with new releases that guarantee protection from these harmful factors.

Health Trend that is Worth the Hype

According to NPD UK Beauty, sales of anti-pollution skin care rose by 30% this 2018. These are products that serve as barriers for the skin, enhancing it for optimal glow.

“There are lots of impacts from pollutants in the environment and ozone to UV rays, and all of these can have a negative impact on the [skin’s] lipid barrier,” Cosmetic chemist Jim Hammer says in an interview featured in Wellandgood.com. “So proper skin barrier function is really the key to maintaining healthy, hydrated skin.”

These UV or Ultraviolet Rays Hammer is pertaining to are found by the American Cancer Society to be a major risk factor for most skin cancers. There are three types of ultraviolet rays but the most prominent is found in sunlight which is at its strongest at 10:00 in the morning until 4:00 in the afternoon. During these times, it is crucial that one protects his/her skin.

Other than pollutants and UV rays, blue light or light emitted by digital devices is also a major contributor to skin damages. Blue light—also known as HEV— is not only present in our gadgets—the sun is also a major source of such light. In a 2013 study conducted by Lipo Chemicals Inc., it was found that “the effects of HEV are the same as UVA and UVB damage: uneven pigmentation, premature aging and impaired barrier function.”

Seeing as these contributors cannot easily be eliminated in our daily lives, it is better to stay protected which is why companies like Marie Veronique, Biossance, and Circada are releasing product after product, ranging from daily moisturizers to microbiome serums.

Many of these are already up for grabs here in the Philippines; you can find skin care shops in Pampanga here in https://www.pampangadirectory.com/category/skin-care/.
