How Pollution Is Affecting Your Skin (And What You Can Do To Protect It)

UV exposure was once the biggest concern when it came to environmental aggressors on our skin, and while UV damage should still be a concern (and something you address in your skincare regime), pollution is fast becoming another environmental contributor to poor skin health and accelerated ageing.

You may have heard the term ‘free radical damage’ when researching skincare – free radicals are essentially molecules that can damage healthy cells and tissue, causing oxidative damage. Air pollution falls under that umbrella.

What Can Pollution Do To My Skin?

Prolonged exposure to air pollution can have a variety of effects on the skin, including decreased collagen production,  inflammation and hyperpigmentation. We’re very lucky in Australia that our cities have low air pollution levels compared to countries like Pakistan, but I’m not taking any chances.

I’ve been using asap’s DNA Renewal Treatment for about a year or so, and I’ll continue to recommend it to anyone who asks. It’s suitable for all ages and skin types, but it’s most beneficial for those with environmental damage and visible signs of ageing.

The Results:

I’m not the core target market for this product, so I thought I’d ask some members from our team to trial the DNA Renewal Treatment for 2 weeks, and they documented their experience.

Deborah, 50

Concerns: fine lines, skin clarity & maintaining hydration

“I used ASAP DNA Renewal Treatment for a couple of weeks. After the first use, my skin felt immediately silky smooth and moisturised, so much so that I could have foregone any further moisturiser. After 2 weeks of regular use, my 50 year old skin doesn’t look like the skin of a 20 year old, BUT the fine lines around my eyes seem reduced, my complexion seems clearer and my skin feels hydrated. I really like the results ASAP DNA Renewal Treatment has provided in the time I’ve been using it and I look forward to seeing how continuous use will improve the elasticity of my skin.”


Joy, 53

Concerns: dehydration, fine lines and wrinkles

“Prior to trying asap’s DNA Renewal Treatment, I was barely using anything else on my skin, so I already knew my skin was probably dehydrated. I started using this every night and I find it soaks in nicely without any oily residue. It feels very soft and velvety on my face, and has definitely moisturise my skin. After only 2 weeks of use, my skin seems to glow, it’s more even-toned and my fine lines (as well as deeper wrinkles) are less noticeable. Looking forward to seeing ongoing results!”


Vanessa, 29

Concerns: dehydration, fine lines, age prevention

“As I quickly approach 30, I’ve been using more products recently that are targeted at anti-ageing. This treatment is super light and creamy – it instantly absorbs into your skin and doesn’t leave it feeling oily. Since using asap’s DNA Renewal Treatment, I’ve noticed the texture of my skin is a lot smoother, and my face feels a lot softer. It has also helped restore moisture to my dehydrated skin. I’m loving this product so far, and can’t wait to see what else it does for my skin.”
