The most inexpensive and easy way to prevent accelerated skin ageing is to use a Sunscreen !!
The best anti-aging advice that we at Derma Revive Skincare can give anyone is to wear SPF everyday in the summer and winter months.
Sunscreen prevents that UV light from getting to your skin cells and causing damage. You should always reach for sunscreens that protect against both types of light UVA and UVB, as they can harm you in different ways.
Because of its longer wavelength, UVA rays tends to penetrate deeper into the skin. It’s responsible for the skin’s tanning response, as well as wrinkles and damaging the elastic fibers and collagen bundles that give elasticity to the skin. UVA rays are the main type of light used in tanning beds, they can also penetrate windows and clouds.
UVB rays, on the other hand, cause more damage to the top layer of skin cells. They are responsible for your sunburn response and are directly related to the long-term development of skin cancer because they can damage the DNA in your cells. Overexposure to UVB rays leads to sunburns. Usually, the effects of UVB rays are delayed, or appear a few hours after sun exposure.
Your face is one of the most exposed parts of your body when it comes to sunlight here are some of the endless benefits of wearing an SPF:
. Stops DNA damage
. Reduces inflammation and redness
. Prevents early onset of fine lines and wrinkles, sagging and leathery skin
. Reduces the risk of skin cancer
. Avoid hyperpigmentation
. Keeps the skin nourished and hydrated, as the sun’s rays can dehydrate and cause a drying affect.
We have a variety of sunscreens on our website and in the clinic all of which we recommend to be worn every am as part of your daily skincare routine. Beauty is skin deep and so is skin cancer, so be smart and wear a sunscreen.
