Mumbai has become enveloped in a thick haze – a combination of dust particles and heavy pollutants – which weather experts are saying is causing skin dryness, The Times of India reported November 15th. The article, “Thick haze laced with pollutants starts drying skin, spurs infections,” noted that the polluted haze will likely be appearing in mornings and evenings from November till March, also contributing to reduced visibility, throat infections and respiratory ailments. K S Hosalikar, deputy director general, Indian Meteorological Department (IMD), commented, ‘When temperature drops during November and winds become calmer, these particles do not dissipate for long.’ He added the presence of dust and suspended particles are what cause excessive skin dryness.

Following on from this, Yourwellness Magazine felt compelled to outline ways to fight skin dryness and fatigue. According to Yourwellness Magazine, ‘In today’s increasingly busy environment, where stress, pollution and poor diets all play a part, it can be difficult improving the condition of your skin without a wealth of products and supplements. When we’re stressed, our adrenal glands release cortisol which heightens the amount of skin problems we suffer with. It makes blood vessels more reactive, which shuts down the blood flow to vital organs – one of these is our skin. The result is that collagen production is impaired and our skin loses firmness. A dull and uneven skin tone can add years, not to mention visible pores, dry skin, age spots and wrinkles. These all add up to skin fatigue, which can be tricky to combat once you have it.’ (http://www.yourwellness.com/2013/09/how-to-fight-skin-fatigue/#sthash.Fb4D2Wpo.dpuf)
