Sun damage can occur at any age. Exposure to UV light all year round, not just during summer months, can cause numerous changes in the skin such as dark spots, pigmentation, actinic keratosis and skin cancers. Sun damaged skin loses collagen and elastin causing increased lines and wrinkles, thickened skin or damage blood capillaries leading to long-term redness. Wearing a good quality broad spectrum sunscreen everyday alongside key antioxidants should be part of your daily skincare routine. Other actives and ingredients can help to treat pigmentation, lighten, brighten and reduce ageing caused by UV exposure.
