The effects of sun exposure occurs when the skin is exposed to harsh UVR over prolonged periods of time. At our clinic we are always encouraging our clients to take steps to limit the impact that sun exposure has on their skin.
Often our skin care tips and treatments can actually result in skin rejuvenation for our Geelong clients. However, failure to act can result in some unwanted effects on your skin and overall health.
Some of the most common visible effects are:
- Fine lines, wrinkles and loss of elasticity
- Course skin texture
- Facial redness
- Pre-cancerous and cancerous skin lesions
- Benign tumors
Sunscreen is one of the most common methods of sun protection along with an antioxidant. Sunscreens are known to create heat to the skin therefore feeding your skin topically with an antioxidant is vital to prevent ageing.
Antioxidants protect our skin from ‘free radicals’ which are highly unstable molecules causing oxidative stress and potential DNA damage to our cells. This process is the underlying cause of Skin Ageing.
Now that summer is over, it is important to repair your skin after suffering from the harsh UVR displaying signs of irritation and an impaired lipid barrier.
Many clients are visiting Vitality with enzyme impairment, essential fatty acid deficiency and dehydration. This why we encourage all of our Geelong clients to rejuvenate their skin as a priority.
YOU CAN’T CONTROL YOUR AGE BUT YOU CAN CONTROL YOUR SKIN!
You can prolong the ageing process and start looking after your largest organ.
It’s so important to seek professional advice from those who have gained tertiary education with a focus on everything to do with skin including, dermatological conditions, skin diseases and disorders.
