The sun is shining, the birds are singing, and summertime is here. Though you may be elated, your skin is not. The summer sun can harm skin, progressing age and damage, but don’t worry: Dr. Perricone skin care is here to help.
Fun is not in the sun for your skin. Why? Sunlight gives off UV rays, which damage skin and progress aging. This causes:
- Wrinkles: UV rays break down collagen, the protein that holds cells together. This breakage causes wrinkles to form.
- Sunspots: When sunlight damages skin, melanin is produced. Melanin is the pigment that darkens and “tans” skin. Sunspots form when melanin is repeatedly produced, a sign of damage.
- Sunburn: Sunburn occurs when UV rays penetrate deep into skin, killing live cells. Skin becomes red and warm because blood rushes to the burn to replenish dead cells. Over time, burns can damage DNA which may cause cancer, research shows.
Dr. Perricone skin care suggests guarding skin from these harmful damages. Read on for Dr. Perricone skin care ideas for protecting skin.
If you still want to have fun in the sun, make sure your skin is protected. Follow these easy Dr. Perricone skin care tips for protection:
- Wear a big floppy hat and sunglasses.
- Pick a spot in the shade during your next trip to the pool.
- Pack a big umbrella to sit under at the beach.
- Apply sunscreen such as More than Moisture SPF 30 every day before stepping out of the house.
After a long day outside, Dr. Perricone skin care suggests moisturizing and drinking plenty of water. As you age, skin cells are less able to hold moisturizers and are therefore easily dehydrated. Moisturized cells are healthier and better able to protect skin.
The staple of summertime is a healthy glow—the keyword being healthy. If you want a tan complexion, check out Dr. Perricone skin care No Sun Tanner.
