We all love summers, and sunbathing by the ocean seems like the ultimate goal for a memorable holiday. Unfortunately, while it sounds very relaxing, years of lying beneath the sun will take a toll on your skin. Wrinkles, dark spots, sagging skin, and discoloration can create a visible map of all those long days spent exposed to the sun.
Every time you go outside without applying sun protection or use a tanning bed, ultraviolet (UV) light damages your skin. In time, this damage builds up, and you begin noticing the changes to your skin. These changes make you look years older than you naturally would, and they have a name: photoaging.
The bad news is that light is around us at all times, so sun damage is a year-round problem for your skin. The good news is that photoaging can be prevented and, even if you already have visible wrinkles, there are things you can do to minimize them. If we caught your attention and you are ready to find out more, read on, ladies!
