The Impact of Climate Change on Body and Skin
Excessive use of motor vehicles has severely affected the human body through the “Global warming“ effect. If we go through deeply, everything on the earth is connected such as the environment & the living creatures (incl. Human Body). Both are interrelated & totally dependent on one another. That also means one’s activities will affect others also and as a result, it will definitely bounce back as an after-effect. Likewise, humans cutting down the forest, the environment takes revenge in the form of floods that carry away whosoever comes in the front.
Climate change has led to the emergence of large-scale environmental hazards to human health, followed by human body & skin, such as weather, ozone depletion, increased danger of wildfires & many more.

How Climate Change Can Affect Your Skin?
1.Sunburn- It is an acute injury following excessive exposure to solar UV rays. The redness of the skin that results is due to an increased blood content of the skin by dilatation of the superficial blood vessels in the dermis. UV radiation contributes about 15-20 % to the sunburn reaction.
2.Tanning- A socially desirable consequence of exposure to unfiltered sunlight is the delayed pigmentation of the skin known as Tanning.
3.Immediate pigment Darkening-This is a transient darkening of the exposed skin that can be induced by UVA and visible radiation. It occurs within 5-10 min of exposure to summer and normally fades within 1-2 hours.
4.Photoaging-The clinical signs of photoaged skin are dryness, deep wrinkles, accentuated skin furrows, sagging, loss of elasticity, and mottled pigmentation.
5.Risks of Severe Acne: The human body maintains a temperature of around 98.2 F, and the Sebaceous glands and sweat glands are heat sensitive and rapidly produce their secretions. Thus overproduction of sebum admixed with shed keratinocytes clogs the hair follicles, precipitating acne.
