Sun Damage is Cumulative.
Even short periods of sun exposure every day add up over a lifetime. What you do today can show up in your skin decades from now.
UV radiation causes damage to skin cells and that can lead to skin cancers. It’s also responsible for 80% or more of extrinsic skin ageing. This shows up as more wrinkles, more sagging, more hyperpigmentation, more uneven tone, more rough areas and more dryness. Collagen and elastin are in the structural layer of the skin and they provide it with its youthful plumpness and bounce. Unfortunately, UV radiation breaks down these important proteins and this accelerates the ageing of the skin.
