SPF Protection & Your Skin!

 

The sun. You've heard the good & the bad. You've heard you get essential vitamins from the sun and receive dangerous rays simultaneously. 

 

 

Let's start with the good.

Sun Exposure Benefits

 

Epidermal exposure to sunshine triggers the production of Vitamin D, a crucial component of health. This so-called "sunshine vitamin" treats bodily inflammation, ameliorates high blood pressure, and improves brain function. Moreover, lack of sunshine is linked with depression and lower sleep quality. 

Getting at least 10-15 minutes of sunlight a day is essential to obtain benefits offered through Vitamin D synthesis. 

Skin Exposure & Your Skin

 

While the sun clearly offers many benefits, overexposure does cause serious changes to the skin. 

Ultraviolet radiation (UV rays) in sunlight are the most common cause of skin damage and wrinkling. UV damage causes wrinkles, fine lines, brown spots, and red blotches.

 

UV rays contribute to the formation of free radicals within the skin, which damage fibres of elastin in the skin, directly causing the formation of wrinkles. 

 

Preventing Sun Overexposure

 

Protective clothing + sunscreen are the main ways to prevent harmful UV rays from damaging your skin. But what about the damage that has already been done?

 
The best way to correct wrinkles that have already occurred is to correct them at the source: free radical neutralization. As hit on earlier, free radicals from UV rays cause wrinkling in the skin. In order to correct these skin blemishes, free radicals must be neutralized.
