Effect of Sun Exposure on Skin

Effect of Sun Exposure on Skin
Skin is an excellent record keeper. Every moment of exposure to daylight adds up like money in the bank – the problem is the payoff known as sun damage (also known as photodamage). As the top cause of premature signs of skin ageing, sun damage shows on skin in the form of wrinkles and hyperpigmentation and can lead to a repressed immune system and the potential for skin cancer.

Even if exposure is limited to brief outdoor lunches or a 20-minute walk, cumulative exposure is enough to cause the signs of skin ageing. The first line of daily defence against sun damage is the daily use of SPF. Even on cloudy or overcast days, UV light can strike the skin and cause damage, so simply wearing sunscreen on sunny days isn’t enough. 

Fortunately, more sophisticated sunscreen formulations with skin health benefits (think less chalky, less greasy) have made SPF a convenient addition to our morning routine. Speak with your professional skin therapist about SPF moisturizers that can be worn comfortably under make-up, or alone to deliver defence against skin ageing UV light.
