How To Repair Sun-Damaged Skin For Summer

See also

Its a summertime and we’re all raring to head straight for the beach where we can all get a nice tan. While sun lotions protect us from the sun’s harmful UV rays, we often forget to reapply them once the fun begins. More importantly, the rays are just so strong that we need to limit our exposure.

What Happens

Have you noticed the damage on your skin when you constantly expose yourself to the sun’s heat? If you’re not careful, you’ll fall victim to a variety of skin problems. Here are some signs of skin damage:

  1. Discoloration
  2. Freckles
  3. Fine Lines and Wrinkles
  4. Leathery Skin
  5. Melanoma

The last one is the most dangerous of all. You don’t know how serious skin cancer is until you experience it. And remember, when it comes to your health, prevention is better than the cure. Protect yourself with sunscreen. Then, take care of those dark spots with skin brighteners.

What to Do

Don’t think that you can easily regain that youthful glow once you stay away from the sun. The damage can be permanent. Hence, you shouldn't take things too lightly. While you have all the right to enjoy the summer season, it’s time to be responsible. Here are several ways to repair your skin:

  • Look for skin brighteners that contain alpha and beta hydroxy acids. These acids are available in milk and fruit sugar.
  • Go for skin care products that are effective at washing away the harmful chemicals that have accumulated on your skin but are still gentle enough as not to create an imbalance on the pH levels found on your epidermis.
  • Organic products such as grape-seed and avocado oils provide the skin with nutrients that aid in the repair. More importantly, these are known to bring your help in the collagen formation.
  • Look for moisturizers that contain hyaluronic acid as this binds the collagen and elastin.

Never take your skin for granted. You need to maintain what you've been blessed with. While you can’t stop aging, you certainly can slow it down with the help of skin brighteners. There are a variety of products you can choose from. Ask your dermatologist for advice as he or she would know what works best with your skin type. More importantly, always protect yourself the next time you head out and enjoy the great outdoors. You’ll definitely benefit from being careful.
