Many dermatologists and other skin experts agree that using a good air purifier can significantly reduce the number of pollutants in your home causing irritation.
Dr Adil Sheraz, a consultant dermatologist and a member of the British Skin Foundation, said that air pollutants like polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (also known as PAH) and other substances such as cigarette smoke can have harmful effects on the skin.
Eczema suffers may see an increase in irritation/inflammation due to a build of PAH, which can typically be found in household items (for example carpets and curtains.) Opting for a vinyl or hardwood floor can benefit those with a compromised skin barrier or purchasing a ventilation unit can be a great option.
The effects of smoking can cause the body tremendous damage inside, but did you know that it can also aggravate skin conditions such as psoriasis and acne? Smoking can likewise encourage those pesky fine lines and wrinkles to appear, even at an early age.
To minimise the damage, take a look at the InAir IA-450UV unit which will remove any harmful airborne allergens such as mould, spores and pollen (preventing skin irritation and potential flare-ups.)
The 8-stage purification system also removes household odours such as cigarette smoke, which then dehumidifies and deodorises, making the air around you more habitable. In turn, by purchasing an Air Purification unit you are significantly improving the pollution inside your home.
