Protecting your skin in the sun!

UV light from the sun causes photo aging in the form of brown spots, coarse skin, and wrinkles whether you’ve burned your skin or not.  When sunlight comes in contact with the skin, it can cause inflammation, the stripping of barrier lipids, and the production of reactive oxygen molecules that affect healthy cell growth and stimulation of collagen destroying enzymes.

…and remember:

·         It’s not enough to just apply sunscreen, you must apply enough AND apply frequently (every 2-3 hours)

·         Stay out of the mid-day sun, between mid-morning and late afternoon, whenever you can

·         Make sure to repair and treat sun damage and STAY HYDRATED!
