Most skin texture and facial aging are caused by sun damage.
The sun doesn’t merely speed up normal ageing process. Instead, it causes us to age in a different way – this is called photoageing.
Photoageing texture changes include:
1. Dry, rough upper layer of skin with build up of dead compacted skin cells.
2. Decreased ability to hold moisture
3. Enlarging pores.
4. Blotchy pigmentation.
Sun damage also leads to a decrease in collagen production – a key protein in your skin. It damages elastin fibres which give your skin youthful spring. This results in further skin texture changes:
5. Skin becoming thick, leathery
6. Fine lines and wrinkles develop.
Sun damage can also cause more serious problems, such as skin cancer.
Because of this, the most important way that you can take care of your skin is to protect it from the sun. Daily use of a good-quality sunscreen or sunblock combined with reduced sun exposure should form a fundamental part of your anti-ageing skincare routine.
