Even With the Best Intentions – Summer Sun Causes Skin Damage

Contributed by Cathy Fricke, Skin Care Specialist

Surprise! Age spots aren’t just caused by getting older. The main culprit is the sun! Perhaps every good intention was made this summer to protect your skin from the damaging effects of sunshine but to no avail. It’s frustrating, but there are things you can do to help the skin recover. First priority—try your best to prevent further damage by continuing to apply generous amounts of broad-spectrum sunscreen and reapply throughout the day. Wear sun-protective clothing, a wide-brimmed hat and try to avoid the sun during the midday when it’s most powerful. There are also medical grade products available to both lighten and shrink dark spots and cosmetic procedures performed by our highly-trained plastic and reconstructive surgeons to reduce fine lines and wrinkles. If sun damage is causing pigmentation, unevenness of color and texture or wrinkles, let’s talk!
