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
