Sun exposure is the main reason of skin aging. The damage caused to the skin by rays of sun is called photo aging. When we sunbathe excessively we lose collagen and elasticity in the skin causing dryness and dehydration, the highest cause of aging. It´s important to highlight that wrinkles appear in malnourished skins, which lack of vitamins and minerals.
It should be noticed that one of the principal reasons why people tend to visit the aesthetic clinics is to get rid of wrinkles and aging signs. Likewise, wrinkles do not only appear because of age, it depends enormously on the way we take care and treat our skin.
Similarly, we could have our skin damaged by dehydration. It can be dry and itchy and perhaps dull looking, too. Your tone and complexion may appear irregular and wrinkles or fine lines are more noticeable.
In contrast, some of us tend to suffer shiny-oily skin, inciting to acne or pimples appearance in our face after extreme sun exposure.
When we sunbathe, UV radiation stimulates the sebum production and thickens the skin, so it clogs the pores causing the appearance of pimples, blackheads and acne on the skin.
Thus, most of the time, the reddish or brownish marks of acne that remain once the pimple disappears can lead to a permanent scar in our skin.
There is an extensive diversity of ingredients that helps to fight damaged skin, photo-aged or post-acneic scars, among all, we can highlight:
-Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that provides several benefits related to the pigmentation of our skin, including a protective effect against UVA and UVB rays. Applying vitamin C topically is also an effective way to lighten various dark spots caused by the sun. It also helps to illuminate and light up the skin tone.
-Hyaluronic Acid: This molecule is a natural skin substance that helps to maintain its elasticity. In addition, its high humectant value works like a sponge, retaining moisture. It also has the ability to absorb a thousand times its weight in water, so it is able to hydrate and reduce the water loss, and thus, prevent dehydration of the skin.
-Vitamin A prevents dead skin cells from sloughing off and clogging pores and reduces the amount of oil your skin produces. Consequentially it reduces the risk of acne and also the appearance of spots caused by acne.
