Even when living in northern european countries like the UK, many of us will still suffer from too much sun exposure. The sun’s rays contain UV radiation which both burns and ages the skin. Unfortunately, most of us only pay attention when the sun is hot enough to burn us and do not take enough precautions at other times. Uneven skin pigmentation (or hyperpigmentation as it is often known) is a common skin complaint. Sun spots – known as solar lentigines – or dark patches of skin frequently appear on the face, hands and other parts of the body that is regularly exposed to the sun.
Sun exposure is the major cause of skin ageing.
Sun spots appear on skin surfaces that get the most sun exposure, such as the face and hands. They are flat tan to dark spots and look similar to freckles.
However when it comes to preventing premature skin ageing, you can take control. We recommend the daily use of quality skincare products with an UVA and UVB SPF of at least 30 as well as protective clothing and eyewear at all times. You can also take control to remove the signs of sun damage that has already appeared.
