Summer is here and you can’t wait to get out there and soak up the sun. Okay, in Britain, this isn’t all that likely but if you’re heading off on holiday, you’ll probably spent a lot of time laying around the pool or exploring in the sun.
Everyone likes a sun-kissed glow — but at what risk? Without the correct protection in place, you could be severely damaging your skin, all in the name of a tan. Here, official Dermalogica retailer Pure Beauty explains how to prevent premature sun aging.
Safeguard your eyes
“Crow’s feet” wrinkles around the eyes are the dreaded sign of growing old for many men and women. What they don’t realise is that by exposing the sensitive skin around the eyes to the sun, they are actually speeding up the premature aging process.
The skin around the eyes is one of the first to show visible signs of aging, so wearing sunglasses is a great way to shield both your eyes and skin. You may be tempted to purchase a budget pair of shades, but you’ll need to ensure they offer 99% protection against the sun’s UV rays as a minimum.
