Your skin is the largest organ of your body. Keeping it well cared for lessens the effects of aging, lessens the chance of contacting skin cancer and keeps it generally very healthy.
Sun damage works long after exposure. While sun damage to the skin may not be apparent when you’re young, it will definitely show later in life.
Over time, the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) light damages the fibers in the skin called elastin. When these fibers break down, the skin begins to sag, stretch, and lose its ability to go back into place after stretching. The skin also bruises and tears more easily — taking longer to heal.
What is the common protection?
Protection that women commonly use includes make up (cosmetics) and sun screen lotion. One should be particularly careful in ensuring one’s legs and back are protected from the sun. Even on a hazy day, the sun can cause damage to one’s skin, and women suffer skin cancer more on their legs and back than do men.
What’s the difference with or without protection
The difference between protection and not depends greatly on the person’s lifestyle and genetic inheritance. A very fair person with a greatly outdoors lifestyle, with a history of skin cancer in her family will very likely contact skin cancer during her life. Similarly, a person who exists on fast food and smokes will have those factors result in a pallid, more sagging skin.
The sun is no more your skin’s friend as well as a pollution. A day time barrier between your skin and the sun and pollution, as is an evening time regimen that allows your skin to be relieved of the day’s impurities.
When home at the end of the day, use gentle cleaning product to remove the sun screen lotion, all over the body, and the cosmetics. Then use the appropriate night cream to repair the damage from the day.
No matter how light or how dark your skin may be, how old or young it is, how well or badly it has been treated so far, keeping it young, toned and flexible to protect it every day.
