Summer, Sun, Sun Protection!

It’s the middle of summer and those sun rays make us feel so good, BUT it’s at a significant cost to our skin and health!

Sun exposure causes 90% of the wrinkles and age spots on our faces and other signs of aging.  We often associate a tanned glowing complexion with good health, but color obtained from the sun’s rays or from a tanning booth actually can increase the effects of aging and risk for skin cancer.

 

Exposure to Sun Causes:

Brown Spots and Blotchy skin

Wrinkles & Fine Lines

Loose Skin & Large Pores

Dull Skin & Rough Texture

 Saggy Jowls & Flattened Cheeks

 Pre-cancerous (actinic keratosis) and cancerous skin lesions

Prevention – what you can do to help prevent the above from happening:

Sunblock – Apply minimum of 30 SPF, UVA/UVB protection daily 20 minutes before exposure and reapply every 2 hours or more if you are in the sun/swimming or sweating.

Vit C Serum – Add in a Vit C serum to your skin care system to help
block UVA/UVB free radicals

Physical Protection
– Wear protective clothing with UV protection, such as hats, sunglasses

Avoid
– Direct exposure between 10 am – 2 pm during the peak UV radiation hours.
