Nothing feels better than warm sunshine on your face, but if you aren’t protecting your skin properly, it can lead to a host of problems that will accelerate your skin’s aging process.
The more you know, the easier it will be to protect yourself. That’s why we rounded up the most susceptible spots for skin damage from the sun – and how to protect yourself and fight back!
You may think that eye wrinkles are a natural part of getting older, but if you spend time unprotected in the sun, it could be making them worse. The skin around your eyes is some of the thinnest skin on your entire body and that makes it extra susceptible to damage from UV rays. From squinting at the sun to actual free radicals wreaking havoc, the sun can cause real problems for your eye area if you aren’t caring for it properly.
Aside from applying SPF, we often suggest sunglasses anytime you’re in the sun. This will help stop squinting which will lead to increase wrinkles and it will also protect your eye area from UV rays. To fight back against free radicals, make sure you’re using your eye serum morning and night every day to fight damage. It will help fight free radicals and help reverse eye wrinkles caused by UV. Your eyes will be looking younger and brighter in no time!
When your skin is unprotected and exposed to UV rays, it can cause an increase in melanin production which will lead to dark spots on your skin. While this can happen to any part of your body, the most common area to experience dark spots from sun damage is on your face. These spots don’t come right after exposure – in fact, many people will only get dark spots month or years after the actual damage happened.
Dark spots are a dead giveaway for looking older than you are and can be a real burden to your complexion. Instead of trying expensive and painful laser treatments, opt for the power of vitamin C in an effective dark spot corrector. Using natural ingredients and proven results, a dark spot corrector can help fade and reverse the look of dark spots. It can also help brighten your entire complexion so your skin looks younger and more balanced.
If you stop to think about how much we use our mouths every single day, it would be no surprise that it’s a common area for wrinkles. Wrinkles around the lips aren’t just for smokers and people who don’t care for their skin. Even the most diligent skincare enthusiasts can suffer from lip lines simply because they’re not using the right products to fight them. It’s also one of the most commonly forgotten places to be applying sun protection.
When trying to fight lines around the lips, make sure that you’re applying SPF there when you’re outside. Even a lip balm with SPF will do wonders for helping to protect your lips. If you’ve already seen signs of wrinkles around your mouth, it would be wise to start using peptides and proteins that fight wrinkles in that area. The best hack for lip lines is using your Eye Recovery Serum as a spot treatment around lips. It will use the same powerful anti-aging ingredients to help plump lines and reduce damage as it does for the eyes. It can also help to prevent more damage as you spend time out in the sun.
