Article Read Duration 3 min. de leitura

You may not know that your atopic eczema condition can be triggered by atmospheric pollution . When pollution levels are high, flare-ups of eczema, or atopic dermatitis, are more frequent and more severe. Combining a simple skincare routine with the right products can help to reduce the impact of pollution on your skin.

WHAT IS ATOPIC ECZEMA?

And what causes flare-ups?

Atopic dermatitis, or atopic eczema, is an inflammatory skin condition that presents as dryness of the epidermis and a deficiency in the layer of lipids (oils) that protect skin’s surface which is also called the skin barrier. A weakened skin barrier allows for increased penetration of environmental triggers and allergens that can cause eczema flare-ups. Atopic dermatitis has a genetic component and runs in families and tends to occur in newborns and children under 5, although it can persist into adulthood.
