How Important is UV and Pollution Protection for Clear Skin?

Our skin is under constant attack from environmental stressors like UV rays and pollution. These aggressors can lead to various skin issues, including pigmentation, inflammation and redness, which can promote a disrupted skin barrier.  

Mateja Weber, Lead Scientist at Romilly Wilde says "For those with acne prone skin, UV rays and pollution can make matters worse. External stressors have an effect on the skin barrier, triggering inflammation, skin dryness and pigmentation. The drying effect of the sun can prompt increased oil production and a build-up of dead cells, essentially contributing to the formation of clogged pores and spots.”
