Environmental skin damage is a process where ultraviolet light and other free radicals cause changes in the skin, and the sun is the number one culprit.
Don’t be fooled by thinking that it takes a sunburn to cause skin damage. Every day, UVA rays from the sun sneak into the skin and cause changes. UVA light is a longer wavelength and the same year-round. This low energy light gets into skin without the burning effect like other rays. It penetrates deep where the skin’s elastin and collagen are. These low energy rays destroy elasticity and collagen and wreak havoc on the skin’s pigmentation. The end result is freckles, fine lines, wrinkling and sagging skin.
Premature Skin Aging
The sun is one of the precursors to premature skin aging. It’s also one of the causes of skin cancer.
The bottom line is that sun exposure and tanning directly in the sun and tanning beds are both dangerous. Staying in the shade, using sunscreen and wearing protective clothing are effective strategies for warding off the danger and skin damage associated with UVA rays.
Safe, Healthy Tan
Using natural skin care serums, engineered to enhance collagen production and protect from sun exposure is another effective strategy.
