For most patients sun damage occurs at their teenage years. And let’s not even get me started on young patients who refuse to wear sun protection because they insist on getting their skin bronzed and evenly tanned. What a miss conception and what a dangerous step this could be. And then of course it won’t be long before they’ll be looking for the best sun damage treatments to undo the damage to their skin. But it’s not too late for you if you start taking care of your skin today and make yourself aware of the real risks sun damage can cause to your skin. And health for that matter.
How does sun damage your skin?
First of all the sun will damage your pigment cells that will leak pigment into the deeper layers of your skin causing you discolouration. And the damage only continues. Due the sun’s heat you’ll find your skin brittle and dry. This is due to your skin loosing its natural oils that were meant to keep it hydrated and balanced in the first place. From here the door is wide open to other skin conditions such as acne, oiliness, redness and fine lines/ wrinkles.
And did you know that the sun can alter your DNA? While you can treat aesthetic concerns, this type if sun damage is long terms and results in irreversible changes in your skin’s structure. So where to go from here?
