"Every day our skin is attacked by factors like pollution, lack of sleep, and UV damage, and these aggressors cause 80 percent of skin aging. Taken all together, these internal and external aggressors have become known as the exposome."
- Dermatologist Dr. Erin Gilbert, MD, PhD, FAAD
What are the Exposome Factors?
"The exposome has a major role in skin health because it is our first line of defense and largest organ of our body. Today, with cities growing at an exponential rate, life in urban environments is becoming increasingly harmful for the body and more visibly, for the skin. Air pollution, UV exposure, abrupt temperature variations, diet and stress, as well as the excesses of urban lifestyles weaken the skin barrier function, ultimately accelerating the aging process and visibly changing one’s appearance. These daily aggressors actually account for 80% of skin aging."
- Dr. Luc Aguilar, Biologist & Exposome Expert, L’Oréal Research & Innovation
