Abstract: This review presents troposphere ozone (O<sub>3</sub>) as a source of oxidative stress in cutaneous tissues. O<sub>3</sub> may cause a disturbance of the barrier function, increase transepidermal water loss and provoke epidermal repair responses, as can be also seen after barrier perturbation. Depletion of O<sub>3</sub> at stratospheric level leads to an increased exposure to UV radiation, well known source of skin cancer. Increased level of O<sub>3</sub> at the ground level, together with increased UV exposure as a consequence of O<sub>3</sub> depletion in stratosphere can have an additive effect on the development of skin pathologies.
