What’s the secret to glowing, healthy skin for years to come? Taking proactive measures today. That starts by adding daily protective steps into your skincare routine to protect from sun exposure. Florida is known as the Sunshine State, and while we love our sunny weather, UV rays are harmful to our skin.
Unfortunately, once sun damage sets in, it can be difficult to reverse. That’s why it’s crucial to take care of your skin now, so you can minimize the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, sunspots and skin cancer for years to come. Maintain youthful, radiant skin with these top tips.
What Is Skin Damage and How Do You Recognize It?
The sun is the leading cause of skin damage. Ultraviolet light can cause premature aging, wrinkles, and even skin cancer. Despite the fact that sunburns may feel like short-term damage, their impacts are often long-lasting.
Your skin’s absorption of UV rays not only causes a painful, external burn, but it also causes your DNA to change at a cellular level. These effects often don’t show up until years later. Sun damage occurs in the deepest layers of your skin, so it is important to consistently use SPF protection.
Some major signs of skin damage include wrinkling, changes in pigmentation or skin texture, loss of skin elasticity, redness/blotchiness, and even broken capillaries. Book a free consultation today with Serene Advanced Skincare to determine your baseline skin health.
Reducing Sun Exposure
The best way to reduce skin damage from sun exposure is to use products with SPF each day. Invest in moisturizers and make up products that include protection against UV rays. ZO Skin Health offers a sun protection line designed to reduce sun exposure and damage. Some of the products in this line include:
Broad Spectrum Sunscreen SPF 50
This sunscreen is designed for sensitive and post-procedure skin. When your skin is in a more fragile or sensitive state it is especially important to protect it from potential sun damage.
Daily Sheer Broad Spectrum SPF 50
This product provides a matte, greaseless finish that lasts all day, and is a great one to include into your morning skincare routine.
Smart Tone Broad Spectrum SPF 50
Smart Tone is a hydrating sunscreen that adjusts to match your skin tone. It leaves no white residue behind and provides numerous anti-aging benefits. Pro tip: This is our founder Colleen’s favorite sunscreen! She even uses it instead of makeup on light days.
Sunscreen + Primer SPF 30
This product serves as a protective sunscreen and hydrating primer. It can be used before makeup application and protects skin from UV rays while keeping your makeup in place.
Defending Your Skin From Sun Damage
The top product we recommend to strengthen your skin’s defenses against sun damage is ZO Skin Health’s Daily Power Defense. This is our favorite product to promote healthy skin complexion, and if you use nothing else, we recommend this! It was developed with ZO’s exclusive technology to reverse and prevent signs of skin damage.
This advanced serum is not a sunscreen, but it strengthens your skin’s protective barrier over time. It creates a strong defense against environmental stressors and prevents premature aging. You can learn more about the ZO Skin Health products that we offer at Serene Advanced Skincare here.
Be Proactive About Your Sun Exposure
When you prioritize your skin’s protection from sun damage, you will not only preserve a beautiful appearance, but you’ll protect your health too.
Skin cancer is the most common type of cancer in the United States, even though it is preventable. Damage to skin cells occurs due to a lack of protective measures, and the consequences often do not surface until years later.
That’s why it is important to take preventative measures against sun damage now. Remember, it is never too late to begin taking care of your skin. At Serene Advanced Skincare, we offer many treatments that can restore your skin’s radiance.
