Let's face it, the sun feels good and it's also good for us, but unfortunately too much of it is extremely damaging to our skin. Excess amounts of sun exposure leads to premature aging, wrinkles, hyper-pigmentation, breaks down the skin's elasticity and worst of all can cause skin cancer. Prevention is key when it comes to sun damage. The effects of sun damage sometimes takes years to fully show up, and although treatable, it is easier to prevent than to treat. Antioxidants are highly effective and essential when combating the signs of sun damage. They play a major role in neutralizing free radicals that are caused by overexposure to the sun's damaging rays. We recommend Antiox-6 Daily, our antioxidant enriched serum with Hyaluronic acid. Another essential component in preventing sun damage is wearing a broad spectrum SPF 30-50 everyday, which acts as an invisible shield protecting your from further damage. We recommend UV Smart Daily Sunscreen, transparent Zinc oxide Antioxidant enriched with Hyaluronic acid. Avoid outdoor activities from 10-3pm when the sun's rays are most intense. To correct past damage, exfoliating facials, chemical peels, hydra dermabrasions and epidermal growth factors work great and with more extreme cases intense pulsed light and laser treatments would be best.
