ATMOSPHERIC SKIN AGEING

NEVER TAKES A DAY OFF

WHAT IS IT?

Atmospheric skin ageing refers to visible signs of skin ageing caused by exposure to atmospheric or environmental aggressors. These aggressors include, but are not limited to UVA/UVB, infrared-A (IR-A) and ozone pollution (O3).

FACING THE FACTS

Atmospheric aggressors surround us on a daily basis, posing a constant threat to healthy-looking skin.

THE EFFECTS ON SKIN

Superficially, this damage visibly manifests as premature lines, wrinkles, sagging and unwanted discolouration.

THE SOLUTION STARTS HERE

Sunscreens are the first line of defense for protecting skin from atmospheric aggressors, however, sunscreen filters may only protect skin from up to 55% of free radicals.*

Backed by 30+ years of pioneering in-vivo (live skin) research SkinCeuticals’ high-potency antioxidants and broad spectrum sunscreen have been proven to help prevent and protect skin from the damage caused by atmospheric aggressors.

ATMOSPHERIC SKIN AGEING IN DETAIL

Rays from the sun are a key contributor to atmospheric skin ageing with UVA and UVB being the most damaging to skin. They play a key role in skin ageing by inducing free radicals that can lead to the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and discolouration.

UVA rays account for up to 95% of solar radiation which reaches the earth1.

UVB rays vary in intensity depending on season, geographic location, and time of day. They directly damage skin by causing sunburn.

SkinCeuticals daily sunscreens provide high broad spectrum UVA/UVB protection. Available in a variety of formulations and textures suitable for all skin types and concerns.

Infrared radiation is a portion of the solar spectrum, and accounts for 54% of the total solar energy to reach the earth. It is divided into IR-A, IR-B and IR-C. IR-A stimulates the generation of free radicals.

SkinCeuticals C E Ferulic helps to neutralize free radicals induced by IR-A.

Discover C E Ferulic >

O3 is a colourless gas found in the earths upper atmosphere and at ground level. Ground level or "bad ozone" is created when pollutants emitted by vehicles and chemicals found in cleaning products react chemically with sunlight.

O3 pollution oxidizes lipids and depletes skin's natural antioxidant reservoir, triggering a progressive cascade of damage.

Ground-breaking SkinCeuticals' science shows that daily application of C E Ferulic and Phloretin CF topical antioxidants can help neutralize free radicals on the upper layer of the skin, to help prevent the impact of O3 damage to skin.
