The Sun and Our Skin: A One Way Love

Sun And Skin One Way Love

By: Dr. Masoud Esfahani

Summer is fast approaching and for us here at the western world, we cannot wait to go out and let the sun kiss our skin. Getting out with the sun shines so high increase our body’s production of our happy hormones, thus it boost up our mood and makes us feel happy. Although this effect of the sun to our mood is superb, our skin suffers and will be felt unloved by the sun. Sun exposure is the number one cause of our age spots and wrinkles. And though being tanned skin gives us a glowing complexion in a short period of time, it actually hastens the process of skin aging and increases our risk of having skin diseases or worse skin cancer.

The sun’s UV light or ultraviolet rays damages the skin’s elastin. These are the fibers that composes our skin and when this fibers get broken, our skin becomes non elastic thus, results to sagging. These fibers have a great contribution as well on our skin’s regeneration and so, if it is damaged, the skin’s healing process will take longer. It is important to take care of your skin because the effect may be seen as we age. Though our love for the sun is great but sad to say it is just a one way love for our skin.

Here are the result of frequently unprotected sun exposure:

  • Pre-cancerous and cancerous skin lesions
  • Benign tumors
  • Fine and coarse wrinkles
  • Freckles
  • Discolored areas of the skin
  • A yellow discoloration of the skin
  • Dilation of small blood vessels under the skin
  • Damage of the elastic and collagen tissue and this causes lines, wrinkles and sagging skin)

Therefore, using sunscreen is one of the most important protection method for skin sun damage and Art of Facial Rejuvenation has one of the best sunscreen brand (Dermalogica) to protect your skin against sun exposure.
