Environmental Stressors

Environmental stressors can have a tremendous effect on the skin. Knowing when your environment could impact your skin, and how to protect yourself, is important.

Skinsider has a range of skincare products for environmental stressors from leading Korean skincare brands that help protect against the impact of everyday life on skin.

Everyone's skin has to deal with stressors every day. Whether you're working from home, in an office, or outdoors all day, there will always be environmental components that skin needs to combat. Understanding what those are and what products you should have as part of your skincare routine to minimise skin damage and irritation is important.

What environmental stressors affect the skin?

The most common environmental stressors that affect the skin include:

  • Temperature changes
  • Weather changes
  • UV rays
  • Pollution
  • LED lighting
  • Stress

For many of these stressors, prolonged exposure is what can cause problems.

How can K-Beauty products help with environmental stressors?

Have you ever been outside all day working hard and by the end of the day skin feels a bit more than weather-beaten? To have healthy skin, you want to use products that will help promote hydration and ensure impurities are kept out of pores.

Everyone's working environment is different, which means you need to have products that align with your routine and habits.

What type of skincare products help combat environmental stressors?

Environmental stressors are going to do two things: dry skin out and leave it feeling tired. That means you want products that can help clean pores and revive skin when needed.

What products should you use? First of all, meet the queen of them all. Every day sun care protection is a must. A good SPF suitable for your skin type will provide you anti-ageing and hydrating properties. It will protect you from harmful UVB & UVA rays which are the main cause of premature ageing, hyperpigmentation and dullness.

Good double cleansing at the end of a day is something you do not want to ignore. There is no point of having skin rituals with impurities, sweat and makeup residue left on your skin after insufficient cleansing. Should your pores become enlarged and clogged, use an exfoliator to gently exfoliate, resurface and retexturise your skin.

Toners are great if you want to avoid problems around the nose and T-zone, while there's no going wrong with an essence that helps aid hydration.

A little sheet mask or two is a must for your basket. Having one handy at home on those evenings where you have the extra time for some pampering will help rejuvenate the skin when you need it most. 

What K-Beauty brands are best for tackling environmental stressors?

Some of the top-rated brands developing products that tackle environmental stressors include:

  • By Wishtrend
  • COSRX
  • Haruharu Wonder
  • iUNIK
  • Klairs
  • LAGOM
  • PURITO
  • Pyunkang Yul
  • Real Barrier
  • Sioris
  • URANG

If you're the type of person who likes to try out different products to help figure out which will work best for your skin, our Beauty Mini Bar has some great miniature versions you can try.

Are there any secret ingredients I should have to protect my skin?

Vitamin C is a key ingredient in helping skin thrive, especially if you're going to be out and about all day. Products like PURITO Pure Vitamin C Serum,By Wishtrend Pure Vitamin C 15% with Ferulic Acid and Klairs Freshly Juiced Vitamin Drop are rich in Vitamin C. Some also contain Ferulic Acid, which helps provide a higher level of care against antioxidants. During the day, always follow up with its BFF, a sunscreen to improve its efficacy and reduce the risk of photo sensitivity!

How can Ferulic acid protect against stressors?

Ferulic acid is great as an antioxidant on the skin. It's the kind of thing that helps boost other active ingredients you're using to give skin a real fighting chance. If it is completely new to you, a good product to try out that contains Ferulic acid would be By Wishtrend Pure Vitamin C 21.5% Advanced Serum.
