Sun Protection: WHY and HOW?

 

Sun is #1 enemy of the skin.

Sun is #1 cause of skin cancer.

Sun is #1 cause of premature aging of the skin.

Sun is #1 cause of hyperpigmentation.

#1 premature aging prevention and #1 skin cancer prevention is

  • proper using of proper sunscreen

  • avoiding sun exposure

The real damage to the skin comes from cumulative sun damage over a lifetime - little by little.

How does sun do damage to the skin?

Sun causes the formation of the radicals in the skin . Free radicals have one electron and desparately are searching for the second one to make a pair. They steal it from a healthy cell. When the cell looses an electrone DNA is altered. The cell replication starts going in an improper way, which gives a potential risk of cancer. Also, when a healthy cell is affected by free radicals, that leads to production of self-destroyed enzymes. This enzyme destroy collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid in the skin. As a result, skin is wrinkled, lax and rough textured.

What can we do?

The best way we can do is:

  • Wear a hat. A wide brimmed hat is what I suggest.  

  • Apply a sunscreen every morning as a part of your daily routine. At least a 30 sunscreen with UVA and UVB protection.  Apply on the face after moisturizer and before makeup. 

  • When you’re on the beach or at the pool, take an umbrella or pick a spot with trees to offer you some shade. 

  • If you plan on being in the sun for an extended amount of time, always reapply your sunscreen every hour and a half. If there is no direct sun exposure in the office, sunscreen does not need to be reapplied.

  • Take Astaxanthin.

Don't forget: the UV rays are hitting the Earth even in a rainstorm!
