Protecting Your Skin from Sun Damage
Some risks are easy to identify, while others are nearly invisible. Environmental toxins, for example, can cause build-up on your skin and lead to skin problems. Toxins and pollution are not, however, the biggest risks to healthy skin. Sun damage can go unnoticed for years and cause increasing problems over time. It’s crucial that you protect your skin from the damaging rays of the sun.
How Sun Damage Happens
While sun exposure can be good for your health and is your main source of vitamin D, a little goes a long way. There are other components in sunlight that cause harm.
When your skin is exposed to UV-A and UV-B rays, it reacts by producing melanin to protect your skin cells; this reaction is what most people recognize as a suntan. Sun damage accumulates slowly over time, so every day you go without sunscreen, your skin is more vulnerable. While the most visible signs of sun damage are mere surface imperfections, cancer, a more serious condition, is a possibility. Sun exposure can cause a wide variety of issues, ranging from unsightly to dangerous:
- Age spots
- Patchy discoloration
- Scaly, rough skin
- Melanoma cancer
- Deep tissue damage
While sun burn treatment can help your body heal from sun damage, prevention is the best approach to minimizing the effects of damaging sun rays. At Hale Cosmeceuticals, we create products that give you superior sun protection, like:
Surya SPF 35+ Sun Block—a heavier cream that is ideal for extended periods of sun exposure but still light enough to use as a daily moisturizer. The ingredients naturally increase hGH secretions and help prevent premature aging and dryness. This product works under makeup and is water resistant.
The best sun burn treatment is to not get sun burned in the first place.
