Sun exposure is the most damaging thing for the skin and is the primary cause of premature ageing. It is responsible for the development of wrinkles, fine lines, sun burn, skin redness and uneven pigmentation which can rapidly age your complexion.
There are various treatments for sun damage but the most accessible and often the most effective is topical skin care products containing Vitamin C, a powerful skin brightening and correcting antioxidant that increases the skin’s ability to repair itself while fighting off damaging free radicals which inhibit collagen production.
Lightly exfoliating products can also reduce the appearance of uneven pigmentation as they lift off and remove the damaged skin cells that are dulling your complexion to reveal the new, healthier cells below. Additional moisturising ingredients like Vitamin E and Aloe Vera condition the skin and repair its protective barrier while also reducing redness and irritation for a smoother, healthier complexion. In order to prevent future sun damage always wear a broad spectrum SPF on any exposed areas of skin every day.
The most effective sun damage treatment products are serums, as the lightweight texture and small molecular structure of these allows them to go deeper into the skin to repair damaged cells and restore epidermal health. Serums are also suitable for a variety of skin types so they can correct sun damage and provide relief for people with oily, combination or dry skin.
