Overexposure to the sun’s dangerous ultraviolet (UV) light not only leads to premature aging but also lead to skin cancer and pre-cancers lesions like actinic keratoses (AKs). Since sun damage accumulates over time, it’s never too late to start a sun protection regimen.
Use sunscreen with an SPF of 15 or higher. Sunscreen is one of the keys to radiant, youthful-looking skin. Daily use may even lower your long-term risk of skin cancer. By reducing your daily sun exposure, sunscreen allows your skin time to heal and your immune system the chance to repair some existing damage.
Following some simple skin care guidelines can help you repair and possibly even reverse wrinkles, brown spots, and leathery skin. All of which are signs of skin aging, up to 90 percent of which are caused by the sun.
