WHAT IS THE EXPOSOME?
The exposome is comprised of internal and external aggressors including UVA/UVB rays, temperature fluctuations, pollution, stress and diet that damage the skin barrier and cause up to 80% of all skin aging.
WHAT ARE THE FACTORS?
"The exposome has a major role in skin health because it is our first line of defense and largest organ of our body...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."
