Did you know, wearing a high quality, high SPF sunscreen everyday is one of the most important things you can do for your skin.
Well sun exposure is a huge factor in how your skin ages and experts say that the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) rays cause up to 90% of skin aging.
The term ‘photoaging’ refers to the premature aging of your skin due to repeated exposure to UV radiation. When UV rays from the sun penetrate into the skin, they damage the elastic fibres that keep skin firm. This means that lines and wrinkles develop sooner than they otherwise would as the skin becomes looser and less smooth without its more youthful internal structure. So the amount and depth of wrinkles that a person has is largely dependent on the amount of sun exposure they’ve had in their lives.
In addition, sun exposure can also cause uneven complexion and pigmentation problems, such as sun spots, age spots, liver spots and patchy pigmentation problems; which can be ageing.
Plus as a final blow, sun exposure can cause the skin to become rough and dry rather than soft, smooth and dewy.
While you can’t go back and ‘unburn’ it’s never too late to protect the skin going forward. Experts recommend daily high SPF sunscreen to protect the skin from further damage. It really can slow the pace of change.
What’s more, if you’re having skin treatments, protecting the skin from the sun will actually make the results last longer too.
If you’re worried about sunscreen being greasy or white, then it’s time to check out the latest products. Advanced sunscreen from top cosmeceutical brands comes with high SPF but there are also a host of additional benefits too.
