Sun Damage

Too much of a good thing can be a bad thing.

Nearly everyone’s guilty of sun worshipping: exposing our skin, often under protected, to too much sun in our efforts toward the sought after bronzed skin glow.

Unfortunately, though, that sun contributes to the untimely deterioration of our skin’s health and youthful appearance down the road, as you might be noticing now. Science estimates that how young or old you look is greatly impacted by how much sun exposure you’ve endured: the sun takes as much as 80-90% of the heat for your prematurely aged skin.

So, if you’re examining your skin and noticing wrinkles, sun spots, reduced skin elasticity, change in skin tone or texture, and sagging, UVA and UVB rays are the likely culprit.

As time passes, with inevitable, ongoing exposure to the sun, these rays deteriorate your skin’s natural ability to regenerate as well as its collagen and elastin (which keep it looking young.
