We heard it many times, that the excessive sun exposure can modify the structure and function of your skin cells, causing it to dry out causing fine lines, wrinkles, dehydrated skin tone as well as pigmentation.
Collagen and elastin fibres in the skin are fragmented by the sun’s UV (ultraviolet) rays.
The sun also weakens the production of new collagen, which can result in premature aging of the skin.
Furthermore, repeated sun exposure over a long period of time can cause age spots.
ALWAYS apply a sunscreen before exposing your skin to the outdoors, whether it's a sunny day or not, the rays penetrate the clouds as well!
Use a water-resistant sunscreen that has a SPF (sun protection factor) with a high factor and a wide-range protection against both UV-A and UV-B rays.
Reapply often to avoid diminishing its affectiveness due to sweating or washing off the sunscreen.
Use a product with SPF on the lips.
Limit your time outdoors when the sun is at its peak
Use sunglasses with UV light guard.
