The science of Cosmetology against environmental pollution
Summary:
Increased levels of air pollution in combination with sunlight have a great impact on our skin, since it is inevitably and constantly exposed to the atmosphere, leading to oxidative stress, changes in pH, dehydration, dryness, inflammation, acne, collagen reduction, premature skin aging, even cancer.
This Postgraduate Thesis aims to address the impact of environmental pollution upon the human skin, as well as whether the science of Cosmetology has the potential to help reduce it. First, we will analyze the main air pollutants and how they affect our skin, in combination with sunlight. In addition, innovative trends in Cosmetology related to the design of products designed to protect our skin, will be presented. Anti-pollutant agents that have antioxidant activity or provide sun protection will be studied, while examining the conditions that they must meet in order to be used for this purpose.
Finally, particular emphasis will be placed on the safety of the use of these substances in cosmetic products, regarding their potential impact on the human endocrine system.
