There is no better feeling than warmth of the sun on your skin. However, research has proven that exposure to the sun without the proper protection can be very harmful to the long-term health of your skin. In fact, 90% of the visible signs of premature aging can be directly associated to the harmful ultraviolet rays of the sun.
Without adequate protection from the sun’s rays, even the normally elastic skin around your mouth which allows you to laugh and yawn can begin to show permanent “laughter lines.” And because it is easy to neglect the use any type of sunscreen protection around the neck area, prominent wrinkles often appear and can make you look much older.
Even those who remember to take some precautions in the early spring and summer months, may tend to forget that the sun’s dangerous ultraviolet rays are equally as strong in the Fall and Winter and also on cloudy days and can still cause damage to skin.
Aside from the stigma of sun-damaged skin such as wrinkles and pigmented spots which can make you appear older, sun damage can be a very serious matter and can increase the risk of skin cancers. There are many options available that can stop the harmful damage caused by the sun.
