The environment that we’re living in makes it harder for our skin to breathe and can play a significant part in skin damage. The solution? An intensive step to neutralize all of the damages and keeping them fully protected when you’re outside is the key.
Since our skin practically gets ‘assaulted’ on a daily basis as soon as we step out, this, in turn, causes our skin to suffer irritations, allergic reaction, and sensitivity, so much it didn’t really give our skin a chance to heal itself.
What Makes Our Skin So Vulnerable?
Some of the factors involved are the sun rays itself, posing as one of the big factors that we worry about. Nowadays the planet is getting hotter and we’re getting more sun exposure than we used to decades ago. As a result, more reported cases of skin cancers happening nearly all age groups as well as the precursor to skin cancer such as scaly, bumpy, and flaky skin.
And of course, the products that we’re using (not just skincare, but also household items) that contain ingredients that can be abrasive and – worse – carcinogenic to the skin.

I’m not kidding; anyone having a high amount of carbs and sugars tend to look older than the ones rarely consuming this type of food groups.
