How The Sun Damages Your Skin
There may have been a point in your life where you spent hours in the sun, using tanning oils instead of SPF. These habits may have caused you to have fine lines, wrinkles and/or discoloration.
What are the three main ways the sun destroys your skin?
The sun’s rays contribute to premature aging. An estimated 90% of skin aging is caused by the sun, that’s because the suns UV rays damage the elastin fibers in our skin, causing sagging, stretching, and overall loss of elasticity in our skin.
Too much sun also causes pigmentation of the skin. Some areas of the skin appear darker, while others look lighter. Melasma can also form from excessive sun exposure, which results in tan or brown patches on various areas of the face.
Age Spots & Freckles
Age spots, which consist of brown or gray spots, are the result of sun exposure, which is why they appear on areas that get a lot of sun exposure, such as the face, hands, and chest.
