Sun Protection

Sunlight has a profound effect on the skin. Exposure to ultraviolet light, UVA or UVB, accounts for 90% of the symptoms of premature skin ageing. Sun burn cases have become quite common, Exposure to the sun can lead to wrinkles, sagging cheeks and discoloration of skin.

Therefore the single most important thing you can do for your skin is to avoid long exposure to the sunlight and to wear a sun block every day, this way preventing premature ageing and protecting your skin from future damage.

To wear a sun protector is particularly important if you have undergone or are currently having any laser treatment as your skin will be more delicate and prone to hyper-pigmentation.

Everybody should protect their skin everyday whether the sun is shining or not. Make use of the following recommended sun protectors and re-apply every 2 hours.
