We all live for the summer months! Nothing is
better than going to the lake, beach, or hanging out at the pool with your
family and friends on a long, hot summer day. While this is therapeutic to the
mind and spirit, it may not always be so great for your skin. And we all know
that we’re supposed to wear sunscreen on the regular to help protect our skin
from the sun’s damaging rays, but maintaining coverage and reapplying sunscreen
is sometimes a task that escapes us while we are having fun. Unconsciously, we
may end up with a sunburn, which is a clear indicator of immediate skin damage.
This damage accumulates over time, and accelerates the skin aging in all of us,
resulting in dark/sun spots (hyperpigmentation), and contributes to other
subcutaneous skin structure breakdown that leads to lines, wrinkles, and
sagging skin. Which is a major bummer for our beauty goals.
