Both visible particulate matter (dust, for instance) and invisible particulate matter (such as nanoparticles and gases) cause oxidative stress, creating free radicals. However, the human body is not without defenses: it has an antioxidant system, which neutralises free radicals by donating electrons, and a DNA repair system, which repairs mutations. But the ozone in air pollution depletes our antioxidants, specifically in the outermost layer of the epidermis, and a normal skin cell must cope with 10,000 free radical attacks per day. If this sounds like an enormous, never-ending task, that’s because it is! And when the body is overtaxed, the result is oxidative stress, with the resultant skin aging consequences.
