How to Protect your skin from Environmental Stressors
December 18, 2019
So first, the bad news. It turns out that air pollution may be a primary cause of premature skin aging, including wrinkles, discoloration, and dryness. Definitely not great news if you live in a big city like New York or San Francisco. A recent study in the Journal of Investigative Dermatology linked the formation of dark spots with traffic-related air pollution. As if that wasn’t enough of a bummer, a little more bad news. A new study out of Boulder, Colorado reports that chemical emissions from personal care products are contributing to air pollution. In fact, during rush hour, the emissions of siloxane, a common ingredient in shampoos, lotions, and deodorants, are comparable in magnitude to the emissions of major components of vehicle exhaust, such as benzene, from rush-hour traffic yuk!
Now for the good news. Natural skincare products like Tevenere which is made with botanicals and pure essential oils don’t contribute to chemical emissions from your skincare and you’re using products that will serve as a protective barrier from the elements.
Moisturizer should not only protect your skin from dehydration but should also provide invisible barrier protection against visible damage from environmental aggressors. These environmental aggressors can include extreme dry climates, wind and you guessed it — air pollution.
Scientists are still uncovering how toxic air affects the skin’s aging process but it is believed that pervasive atmospheric elements including Ozone (the toxic gas formed when UV light hits mono-nitrogen oxides) are among the primary causes of pollution-related skin damage.
So, how can a moisturizer protect your skin from signs of aging caused by air pollution? The active natural ingredients in Teveneres day moisturizer create an invisible barrier between your skin and the elements.
- Shea Butter, naturally rich in essential fatty acids, phytosterols, vitamin E, D and provitamin A, is an excellent skin conditioning agent for harsh climates and for after-sun care
- Hyaluronic Acid deeply hydrates the skin and visibly reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
- Aloe Barbaris Leaf extract – minimizes dehydration and reinforces the appearance of a healthy, balanced, moisture-rich complexion

Start your mornings with a layer of Teveneres hydrating day moisturizer and a layer of your favorite natural sunscreen on top. Finish with a hat and sunglasses and you’ve done everything you can to protect your skin from both sun exposure and environmental stressors.
