Spring is around the corner and we need to remember to take care of our skin properly especially when it comes to sun protection. Most people only think of sun protection in the summer months but it's important to protect your skin every day. Even in the winter or when it's cloudy, the sun can cause damage to your skin. The sun's rays can actually bounce off of reflective surfaces such as snow and water increasing your risk of sunburn and sun damage. We recommend strengthening your skin from the inside out, helping to protect it from free radical damage and sun damage. What you eat is extremely important for cell turnover, a strong skin barrier and for skin that can heal itself from damage. Read on to learn how to take care of your skin in the sun!
How UV radiation destroys skin collagen and accelerates skin ageing.
As much as we love to bare our skin under the sun for that healthy bronzed look it is important to remember the damaging impact UV rays have on our skin and body. UV radiation can cause collagen to break down at a higher rate than normal ageing. It does this by penetrating the middle layer of skin (dermis) causing the abnormal buildup of elastin. When these elastin accumulate, enzymes are produced which inadvertently break down collagen and create so-called "solar scars." Continued exposure only speeds the process leading to further wrinkling and sagging.
How to rejuvenate sun-damaged skin
Ok. So you've seen your skin turn red from sunburn then get flaky, maybe leaving some scarring and the worst yet - dryness, uneven pigmentation and wrinkles. When it comes to treating sun-damaged skin the best skin repair remedies are to heal from the outside-in (short-term) and from the inside-out (long-term).In the short-term, to soothe redness and heal your skin try aloe vera gel and a collagen mask. A good quality collagen mask can infuse collagen peptides directly into your dermis layer and provide instant healing—it tones, hydrates and rejuvenates.
When it comes to long-term remedies to reverse sun damaged skin, your first and best line of defence is to strengthen and repair your damaged skin with a good collagen supplement that will not only stimulate new collagen growth but will also reverse signs of ageing. Collagen is a very important structural protein in our bodies, found in tendons and ligaments, cartilage, bones, blood vessels, and of course skin. In the skin, it is the major protein found in the matrix with elastin and hyaluronic acid. Which basically means it is a key component to making your skin looking young by maintaining its structure and shape over time.
