PROTECTION FROM SUN DAMAGE
Harmful UVA rays penetrate deep into the second layer of skin causing wrinkles and premature aging. UVB rays affect top layer of the skin and stimulate melanin production causing tan and sunburn. Wearing sunscreen daily and sticking to a regular skin care routine is vital to prevent sun damage. By carefully practicing sun protection round the year, you can prevent further damage to the skin and may even reverse some of the damage.
With time, our skin undergoes “intrinsic aging” with appearance of visible lines on our face and skin becoming thin and dry. Parallelly, our environment and lifestyle can cause our skin to age prematurely which is termed as “extrinsic aging.” By adopting good skin care practices, we can slow down effects of aging. Some of these practices include protecting skin from the sun every day, eating a healthy balanced diet, exercising daily to improve blood circulation, stopping smoking, reducing alcohol consumption, maintaining skin hygiene and hydration, and using products which are gentle on skin.
