When faced with our typical British weather, it can be easy to forget just how important it is to protect your skin from the damaging effects of the sun’s rays. And yet, if you stop to think about it, your complexion is constantly being exposed to UV rays: your journey to work, lunch times spent outside the office, travelling home again; even if you are not soaking up the rays on purpose your skin is still vulnerable.
UV rays have a detrimental effect on collagen production, resulting in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It also impacts on melanin production and repeated exposure combined with the ageing process can leave hyper pigmented patches of skin, also known as age or liver spots. The overall effect? Skin that looks prematurely aged.
Luckily, using the right kind of skin products can help to protect your skin from the damaging rays. It is essential to incorporate sun protection into your daily skincare routine. Products such as Dermalogica Dynamic Skin Recovery offer a Sun Protection Factor of 30, thus effectively protecting your skin while ensuring it remains hydrated and nourished at the same time.
We have all heard the saying ‘Prevention is better than cure’, and when it comes to your skin, it couldn’t be more appropriate. Don’t underestimate the accumulative effects of daily exposure to the sun, and make sure you choose the right skincare products that will ensure your skin looks and feels fantastic!
