Urban Skin Struggles

City life can be thrilling and exciting with so many things to do, places to visit, people to meet. But something that we can easily forget are the struggles our skin can face living in urban areas, especially in Singapore.

Here are 2 of the biggest skin care struggles faced by city dwellers:

  • Pollution – Pollution is a cause for concern for more than just lung health. These same air pollutants rob skin cells of oxygen, which can make the skin look dull and saggy and cause uneven skin tone and accelerated aging. As you get older the body’s ability to fight free radicals diminishes. Unfortunately, pollutants increase the number of free radicals in the air, making urban living a real concern for healthy skin. Some of the worries include dryness, premature aging, skin rashes, eczema and acne.
  • UV Rays from the Sun – The sun is the skin’s worst enemy, especially during summertime and in tropical climates. Warm climates are often full of humidity which is good for skin. But with heat comes sun, which is anything but good for skin. UV rays are extremely damaging to skin cells and, besides natural causes, are the leading cause of premature skin aging.

Combining these two issues is regular, daily life for Singapore residents.

Pollution in combination with UV radiation decreases the production of skin collagen, causing the skin to lose elasticity. Loss of elastin gives skin a rougher texture and fine lines begin to appear.
Beyond the sun, hot temperatures cause us to sweat and produce excess oil, which can clog pores and create blemishes. Heat rashes can occur when skin ducts are clogged and moisture gets trapped under the surface. Skin needs to remain clean, nourished and protected in sunny, hot climates.


So what can we do to prevent this damage, heal damage we’re already facing and keep our skin healthy? We’ve got the solutions to these issues with our Urban Skin Remedies. Upcoming blog posts will feature 3 of our offerings and how you can best utilize them and still fully enjoy life in the city.
