Top 3 Treatments for Sun-Damaged Skin

After years of repeated exposure, the sun will start affecting your skin in different ways. Premature ageing is one of the many effects that you could experience by over-exposing your skin to excessive amounts of UV light. Along with fine lines and wrinkles, your skin will also bruise and tear more easily. On the more extreme side of things, there is also a chance that you could develop skin cancer if you don’t protect your skin from the harsh rays of the sun.

Protecting your skin

So, what can you do to protect your skin?

The sun is harshest between 10 am and 2 pm so it’s best to stay indoors during those times. When you do head outside though, be sure to protect your skin with a high-SPF sunscreen, clothing and a hat.

If your skin has already experienced some damage due to sun exposure, there are a number of treatments that you can use to reverse some of the damage.

Popular treatments for sun-damaged skin

Clear + Brilliant treatments use laser technology to resurface the top layer of the skin. It will also encourage healthy tissue production, which will give you that smooth, youthful appearance once again.
