Can you believe it is now officially fall? As time flies, somethings can stick around for a while - like sun spots. If your skin was exposed to the sun this summer there is no doubt you probably have some underlying skin damage. This happens to everyone, every day as the sun shines upon our faces. UV rays are the main creators of free radicals, which are unstable oxygen molecules that steal energy from healthy cells, causing oxidative stress. This activates enzymes that break down collagen and damage the DNA of a cell, causing premature aging in the skin.
So how do we reverse the damage that we accumulated this summer, and each summer before? First and foremost. Never miss a day without SPF. You can shop our favorite SPF’s here.
Exfoliation, to shed the dead skin cells, and loading up on antioxidants to brighten and protect the skin are key. Here are a few of our favorite products to help say goodbye to sunspots:
