Your summer was filled with sun-exposed trips to the mountains hiking, play time with the kids at the pool and day long adventures at the park and visiting farmer’s markets.

What Are Environmental Effects on the Skin?

The skin is the body’s largest organ that serves to protect us from harmful environmental substances. While most exposure takes place at work, your skin is still at risk in your home and during day-to-day activities.

Typical reactions the skin will have if exposed to harmful substances include:

  • Eczema, dandruff, inflammation of the skin (dermatitis)
  • Allergic reactions including asthma and hay fever
  • Hardening and tightening of skin and connective tissues (scleroderma)
  • Acne cause by toxic exposure (chloracne)
  • Pigmentation and coloring of the skin
  • Skin cancer from exposure to sunlight (ultraviolet B rays)

These are just some reactions your skin can have after being exposed to harmful substances in the environment. Dermatitis is often the most common reaction skin will have with many people developing eczema.
