Skin Pollution Widget

On our homepage you will find the NEW Dermalogica Skin Pollution Widget to identify when you should use Daily Superfoliant to target the harmful effects of pollution on your skin. Check this tool regularly as it is updated based upon the pollution in your area. You may check in the morning and your area is showing low risk, and then in the evening, it’s increased to high risk. Encourage your clients to check the tool as well as this can help you and your clients determine when to fit the Daily Superfoliant into their skin care regime. Check the area where your client lives, where they work etc. It also gives you the information relating to the dominant pollutant in the area.

Skin Pollution Index values are calculated based on data provided by BreezoMeter.

How does BreezoMeter know the outdoor air quality levels?

Using advanced algorithms and big data infrastructure, BreezoMeter brings air quality data out of obscurity and into the hands of users in a format as simple to access and understand as weather reports.

BreezoMeter’s big data analytics determine the dispersion and flow of air pollution from a combination of layered data sets derived from governmental sensors, satellites, weather patterns, transportation dynamics, and other environmental sources. Tied together with proprietary algorithms, this combination provides users with accurate air quality data, with a precision and granularity up to a city block.

Fine particulate matter (<2.5pm)

Where there's smoke, there's PM 2.5. These microscopic particles are primarily caused by burning fuel, wood, oil and coal. The 2.5 refers to the maximum microns in diameter of each particle, about 1/20th the thickness of an average human hair.

  • PM 2.5 can be found both indoors and outdoors. Levels tend to be higher where air is stagnant.
  • Wind can carry PM 2.5 miles away from the particles source.
  • For every PM particle you can see, there are 1 million invisible particles that are small enough to enter pores. 

Inhalable particulate matter (<10pm)

PM 10 is typically a mixture of dust, soot, smoke, acids, salts and metals. The 10 refers to the maximum microns in diameter of each particle, about 1/5th the thickness of an average human hair.

  • Motor vehicles, fire, construction, factories and agriculture are major sources of PM 10.
  • Air pollution from traffic and soot can increase pigmentation spots by 20%.
  • For every PM particle you can see, there are 1 million invisible particles that are small enough to enter pores.

Nitrogen dioxide

This chemical compound comes from burning fossil fuels as well as combustion related to energy or industrial production. Natural burning also plays a role. At higher temperatures, NO2 emits a reddish-brown color and a pungent odor.

  • Most of the nitrogen dioxide found in cities comes from motor vehicle exhaust.
  • Gas-powered heat is a major source of Nitrogen dioxide in homes.
  • Nitrogen dioxide can generate free radicals that degrade amino acids and protective lipids in the skin.

Ozone

The main ingredient in "smog", ground-level ozone is formed by chemical reactions that occur to emissions from industrial facilities, electrical facilities, motor vehicle exhaust, gasoline, paint and chemical solvents.

  • Just a few hours of smog exposure can reduce natural antioxidant Vitamin E in skin by 25%.
  • Ground-level ozone is different from the ozone in the stratosphere that shields us from the sun's harmful rays.
  • Ground-level ozone generate free radicals and enzymes that compromise the skin's protective barrier.
