Sun damage is cumulative. You can’t go back in time, but you can reverse some of the damage accumulated over the years. How has the sun affected your skin? How can you address issues such as hyperpigmentation, spider veins, dehydration, and dark spots? The answers to these questions vary depending on the type and severity of your sun damage.
Up to 80 percent of visible aging is caused by exposure to the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) rays; not by the aging process itself; not by stress, lack of sleep, or too many glasses of wine on more weekdays than we’d like to admit. Those fine lines and age spots are likely damage from the sun. According to the Skincancer.org research, only about 23% of lifetime exposure occurs by age 18. The majority of sun exposure occurs between ages 19 and 40; around this time, the signs of hidden damage start to present themselves above the surface, causing many to wonder how to look younger and find the best treatment for sun-damaged skin on the face. If that is your case, you can always count on the Preventous team to build an effective and customized plan to get your glow back.
- Stay out of the mid-day sun

- Use sunglasses that protect from both UVA and UVB rays
- Don’t forget about your lips – wear an SPF 30 lip balm.
- Completely avoid tanning beds!

Almost everyone has some degree of hyperpigmentation. And because melanin reacts to sunlight, people who have had long exposure to the sun, such as the elderly, are more likely to exhibit hyperpigmentation. Our face, neck and hands are the areas we expose most to the sun so it should not be surprising that these areas are affected by hyperpigmentation. If that is your case, contact us today.
