Pollution - How It Can Cause Everyday Skin Problems?

Pollution - How It Can Cause Everyday Skin Problems?

With the advancement of technologies, comes a fee and that is pollution. Car fumes and smoke from industrial factories combined with the UV rays of the sun is more harmful than can be imagined. The most affected area is the skin.

Skin problems
The skin's primary purpose is to act as a protector, providing a barrier against toxic chemicals and radiation. According to dermatologists, the problems of uneven skin tone and darkened complexion is due to the pollution in the environment. It accelerates ageing. Skin cancer, connective tissues disease, halogen acne and chemical depigmentation are some of the skin problems.

Pollution affects skin
When pollution comes into direct contact with the skin, the polluted particles begins to infiltrate the deeper epidermis layers. This infiltration causes the skin to become inflamed and dehydrated. A cellular-level reaction also takes place which makes the skin lose its firmness and elasticity. Pollution breaks down the collagen present in the skin which makes the skin impaired from further functioning as a barrier. The formation of wrinkles, lines and loss in the volume are the typical signs of the skin being affected. Acne and dermatitis are also signs found in the earlier stage of skin problems due to pollution.

Diagnosis
If an individual wants to examine the texture of the skin, then a full facial assessment can be done. The examination should deal thoroughly with the formation and patterns of the lines and wrinkles. One must note if the ageing of the skin is in parity with the ageing of the person. Sometimes the skin problems may be associated with hyperpigmentation and to check if the lines extend till the neck. Along with the face, the hands should also be examined because these two are the main areas that remain exposed mostly with a chance of getting affected by environmental pollutants.

Three ways of managing the skin problems

  1. Sunscreen: The most common way to keep your skin guarded against the radiation and pollutants is to use sunscreen. It inhibits the harmful effects of UV rays on the skin. It acts as a physical barrier protecting the skin from coming into contact with the ultraviolet radiation. Dermatologists recommend SPF 50 for complete protection. It is to be noted that the SPF is not combined with foundations or moisturisers and it tends to become less active.
  2. Cleansing: At the end of the day, it is always advisable to cleanse the face thoroughly to remove the invisible toxins that gather on the skin over the day. Cleansing, as well as exfoliation is an excellent remedy to improve your skin texture. Products containing alpha hydroxy acids (AHA) is recommended to be used as they chemically exfoliate the skin and help in the development of new skin cells.
  3. Antioxidants: After coming into contact with the skin, pollution forms free radicals or molecules that destruct the skin by breaking the collagen. To prevent the skin destruction from happening, antioxidants are to be used. They are the nutrient that helps in neutralising the free radicals and diminishes the risk of skin damage. It helps the skin to repair itself. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Dermatologist.

Cheilitis is inflammation of the lips.[1] This inflammation may include the perioral skin (the skin around the mouth), the vermilion border, and/or the labial mucosa.[2] The skin and the vermilion border are more commonly involved, as the mucosa is less affected by inflammatory and allergic reactions.[2] It is a general term, and there are many recognized types and different causes. Cheilitis can be either acute or chronic.[3] Most cheilitis is caused by exogenous factors such as dryness (chapping) and acute sun exposure.[3] Patch testing may identify allergens that cause cheilitis.consult skin doctor

Hie. I have been tackling acne since I was a teen an now I am 22 yrs old but still I find it difficult to get over it. My skin type is sensitive and initially I consulted a local doctor she prescribed me few ointments n soap. I felt they hardly work on my skin then I use natural things lyk turmeric powder etc they are quite soothing n provide instant relief but I wanna get rid of it permanently. Few months back I have gone through acne treatment at kaya skin clinic 8 (sittings) n exactly after it it I felt good n from past few months and also before treatment, I am facing red small pimples around my check area I just want to get rid of it permanently. Usually when I get out in the sun my skin gets worst even after wearing a sunscreen lotion n even if I use any cosmetic products for many hours contiguously my checks go red n some times it also causes irritation. And I am quite bad about food timings. Suggest me some good cream, or any product or any good remedy so that I can get rid of this redness. Other parts of my face are normal except the check area. I even get rashes n pimples under my arm pits n private area. Please do suggest me some good remedy or what all precaution I should take n let me know what's the root cause of all this. Thank you.

I am suffering from benin prostate hypertrophy grade ii. Please suggest medicine.
Since when you have this condition? to help control the symptoms of an enlarged prostate, try to: limit beverages in the evening. Don't drink anything for an hour or two before bedtime to avoid middle-of-the-night trips to the toilet. Limit caffeine and alcohol. They can increase urine production, irritate the bladder and worsen symptoms. Limit decongestants or antihistamines. These drugs tighten the band of muscles around the urethra that control urine flow, making it harder to urinate. Go when you first feel the urge. Waiting too long might overstretch the bladder muscle and cause damage. Schedule bathroom visits. Try to urinate at regular times such as every four to six hours during the day to" retrain" the bladder. This can be especially useful if you have severe frequency and urgency. Follow a healthy diet prescribed by registered dietitan. Obesity is associated with enlarged prostate. Stay active. Inactivity contributes to urine retention. Even a small amount of exercise can help reduce urinary problems caused by an enlarged prostate. Urinate and then urinate again a few moments later. This practice is known as double voiding. Keep warm. Colder temperatures can cause urine retention and increase the urgency to urinate. Do reply back for medication prescriptions. Being also a general physician and registered dietitian, I prescribe both evidence based herbal as well as allopathic medicines complementing with dietary guidelines and home remedies carefully personalized for each individual patient.

1. Keep your skin clean and dry. 2. Treat athlete's foot at the same time if you have it. Doing this will decrease the risk for recurrence. 3. Avoid wearing any clothing that rubs or irritates your crotch. 4. Wash your underwear and athletic supporter frequently. 5. Put on your socks before you put on your underwear if you have athlete's foot. 6. Take off wet swimsuits quickly. 7. Avoid carrying wet or sweaty clothing in your gym bag. 8. Treatment - your best options include lamisil, lotrimin ultra, and/or naftin. These are more expensive, but they will get rid of jock itch faster. Prefer lotrimin ultra which contains butenafine hydrochloride over regular lotrimin af which just contains clotrimazole. Studies have shown butenafine can be faster and more effective than clotrimazole. 9. You can also purchase cheaper creams containing clotrimazole or miconazole. These will take a little longer to work, but they will effectively wipe out jock itch.

These problems may be due to allergy. All of the allergies, what is done, is avoid direct contact with the allergen. As a routine we doctors do prescribe antihistamincs and/or steroids in the form of oral, local. And injectable medicines. Allergy tests are available and after finding the specific antigen, desensitization also can be done. Hope you are helped. Regards.

My bikini parts are very dark infact my body color is fair and normal. What can I do.

My bikini parts are very dark infact my body color is fair and normal. What can I do.
The area you have mentioned is always about two tones darker than the other body parts. If your inner thighs are very dark, it might be because of extra fat, if you have fat or loose skin on your inner thighs near bikini area, it will get lighter if you loose weight there. If you use hair removal cream or razor on pubic area, it makes hair thick and skin appears dark. If your skin on that area is damaged, apply coconut oil to soothe it or if you have ingrown hair, use soap with little salicilic acid on that area.
