The world of cosmetics has advanced enormously in recent years, giving way to innovations and discoveries that, more than ever, emphasize the importance of comprehensive skin care. One of these revolutionary concepts is the exposome.
Have you ever wondered “exposome, what is it”?
In this article, we will dive into this term and discover how luxury organic and botanical cosmetics, especially SAPER’s approach, can offer essential protection against it.
What is the exposome?
The exposome refers to the total set of environmental exposures a person faces from conception to death. This includes factors such as UV radiation, pollution, stress, diet and many others. These external factors can significantly influence aging and overall skin health.
The relevance of the exposome to skin care
Our skin acts as a barrier between our body and the outside world. Day after day, it is exposed to different elements of the exposome that can affect its health and appearance. From traffic fumes to prolonged exposure to the sun, all of these factors can contribute to premature aging, dehydration and other skin problems.
The Main Factors of the Exposome
Next, we will explore the main factors of the exposome and how they affect the skin and overall health:
- Ultraviolet (UV) radiation: UVA and UVB radiation from the sun are probably the best known factors of the exposome. These radiations can cause direct damage to the DNA of skin cells, accelerating skin aging and increasing the risk of skin cancer.
- Environmental Pollution: Air pollution, such as fine particulate matter (PM2.5), toxic gases and heavy metals, can penetrate the skin and cause a variety of problems, from premature aging to allergic reactions and skin diseases.
- Smoking: Tobacco smoke is not only harmful to the lungs, but also has a devastating effect on the skin. It can reduce collagen production, lead to sagging skin and increase the appearance of wrinkles.
- Diet and Nutritionón: What we eat plays an important role in our skin health. A diet rich in sugars, fats and processed foods can accelerate skin aging, while a diet rich in antioxidants and nutrients can protect the skin from the damage of exposome.
- Stress: Chronic stress can have detrimental effects on the skin, causing acne outbreaks, rosacea and other skin problems. High levels of cortisol, a stress hormone, can break down collagen and reduce the skin’s ability to repair itself.
- Lack of Sleep: Chronic lack of sleep can accelerate the aging process and weaken the skin’s natural defenses.
- Temperature and Climate Changes: Exposure to extreme temperatures, whether hot or cold, as well as lack of moisture, can dry out and damage the skin.
- Chemicals: We are surrounded by chemicals in our daily lives, from household cleaning products to cosmetics to clothing. Many of these products contain substances that may be irritating or allergenic to the skin.
- Biological Factorsological factors: These include exposure to viruses, bacteria and other microorganisms that can influence the health of the skin and the body in general.
