7 tips to protect your skin and prevent wrinkles and dark spots from sun damage 

Smart Skin Tips for Summer
Its almost end of Spring and summer is just around the corner. 

The thought of summer often conjures up images of flip-flops, bathing suits, walking on the beach and getting the bronze color skin and glow.  Summer is the time to bare our skin and bath in its warmth. However, the summer sun can also cause numerous skin problems if we don’t take preventive measures to protect our skin.

Sun exposure isn’t necessarily a bad thing, as it is a key source of vitamin D. However, too much sun can have aging effects on our skin and that's not what we want!
How Overexposure to the Sun Destroy Skin Collagen

Exposure to UVA and UVB radiation from the sun can lead to premature aging. Not only does UV radiation cause skin damage, it also increases your risk for skin cancer. UVA radiation penetrates the skin more deeply than UVB radiation. In fact, UVA radiation leads to a higher rate of collagen breakdown in the dermis than chronological aging.

The dermis is the middle layer of the skin, between the skin’s deepest fatty tissue and the epidermis, or surface layer of the skin. The dermis consists of a thick mesh of collagen fibers and plays a crucial role in maintaining the skin’s proper functioning and appearance. Collagen is a fibrous protein containing essential amino acids. It is responsible for maintaining the skin’s firmness, elasticity, thickness, and suppleness. When collagen in the dermis begins to decline, signs of premature aging start to develop.

Sunlight  damages collagen fibers also leads to the accumulation of abnormal elastin. Enzymes called metalloproteinases are produced in large quantities when this abnormal elastin accumulates. These metalloproteinases break down collagen, which leads to the formation of solar scars, where skin cells haven’t been replaced or repaired. Accumulative solar scars lead to visible skin damage and wrinkling skin. UV radiation also creates free radicals, which activate the metalloproteinases that cause collagen breakdown, accelerating skin aging, formation of fine lines, wrinkles brown  and age spots.

Here are 7 tips for taking care of our skin throughout the summer to prevent collagen breakdown and keep the signs of premature aging at bay.
Cover Up

One of the best things you can do for your  skin in the summertime is cover up. If you don't wish to, then try to stay indoors between 10am and 4pm. If you must be outdoors during this time, wear sunscreen and cover up with hats and wear clothing made with special UV protection fabric because it absorbs  UV light better and protect your skin from the damaging sun rays. . You should also use sunglasses for eye protection.
Apply High-Quality Sunscreen Religiously

Choose sunscreen that offers UVA and UVB protection and has an SPF of 15 or higher. You can determine whether sunscreen offers broad-spectrum protection by checking whether it contains sulisobenzone, titanium oxide, zinc oxide, avobenzone, cinnamates, salicylates, and benzophenones. Sunscreen that doesn’t contain these agents may only filter UVB light. UVB light is responsible for skin cancer and sunburn, but UVA light can also lead to the development of skin cancer and cause premature aging. In addition, be sure that the sunscreen you select is water-resistant so that it cannot be easily removed by sweat or water.
Protect skin collagen by boosting Collagen Levels with Ingestible Collagen Supplement Drink

Hydrolyzed Collagen has been shown  to delay or minimize the effects of skin aging. Clinical studies shows ingesting collagen drink that contains 10,000mg hydrolyzed collagen daily helps to increase skin collagen density, hydration and reduce wrinkles.   Choose a collagen drink that also contains hyaluronic acid , which preserves the skin’s moisture level, firmness, and elasticity.  
Take a Vitamin C Supplement

Vitamin C plays an important role in maintaining healthy skin and aids in the production of collagen. Exposure to UV light, pollutants, and cigarette smoke exacerbate the decline of vitamin C and contribute to premature aging. The good news is that you can replenish your body’s vitamin C levels by taking a vitamin C supplement. While a vitamin C supplement cannot replace sunscreen, it can be used in conjunction with sunscreen to protect against and potentially repair UV damage, such as fine lines and discoloration.
Exfoliate

Exfoliate your skin once or twice a week if you have dry skin and three to four times a week if you have oily skin. Exfoliation helps shed dead skin buildup and stimulates new collagen production. This leaves the skin looking softer and brighter.
Use a Collagen Mask to Relieve the Effects of Sun Exposure

A collagen drink can restore youthful skin from within, but it’s also helpful to target the signs of aging on your face with a topical solution. Collagen mask tones, brightens, and hydrates your skin while protecting it from the harmful effects of the sun.
Collagen mask packs a punch, delivering essential nutrients directly to your skin. Regular use of a collagen mask offers the skin and its collagen significant protection from sun damage when used in conjunction with sunscreen. Over time, collagen mask can reduce the size of your pores and diminish the appearance of wrinkles. For the best results, apply collagen mask two to three times per week.

If you’ve searched for anti-aging solutions at any point in the last few years, you’ve likely come across some sort of collagen product promising smoother, firmer skin. Like kale was the powerhouse health staple in the early 2000s, collagen is the new “it” ingredient—particularly in the skincare world. That’s because collagen is to skin like calcium is to your bones or vitamin C is for immunity. Why? A whopping 75% to 80% of our skin is made up of collagen , and it lays the groundwork for youthful, uplifted, firm and bouncy skin.

But here’s the thing—consuming any food source or supplement containing collagen won’t bestow the results you can see and feel. People are flocking toward bone broth and collagen powders without considering one crucial factor: the collagen’s ability to actually reach the skin and effect visible change once it’s consumed. You see, collagen molecules in their natural state are too large to be digested and absorbed—and they’re certainly not getting to the skin.

In simple terms, your body can’t deliver regular collagen to where it needs to be. What you need to look for is a very specific type of collagen with excellent bioavailability; in other words, you need collagen that actually enters your body’s circulation system so it can effectively work its magic.

Most of us take sleep for granted as sleeping is a basic human need, like breathing, eating, or drinking water.  You've probably heard it a thousand times, from your mom to your doctor, why it's important to have quality sleep as it will affect the way you look, feel, and perform throughout the day. 

Getting sufficient sleep is vital to your health and well-being, as the body works to repair and restore itself while you sleep. If you don’t get enough sleep, you secrete fewer hormones and slow down the body’s repair  processes. Unfortunately, many of us lead busy, over scheduled lives and don't get the amount of sleep time we need each night. We probably won't even notice the difference until the signs of aging shows up on our skin, hair and body.

Chronic sleep deprivation has been linked to cancer, diabetes, obesity, immune deficiency and most recently, it has been scientifically proven that can also result in premature aging.

To understand how and why lack of sleep has such a significant impact on our body, it's important to understand what happens when we sleep.

I grew up just outside of San Francisco. We lived in a nice cul-de-sac of newly constructed homes. I remember being in 3rd grade moving away from our smaller, older home in the Sunset district known for its side-by-side houses and fog.

To me, the other families around us seemed to be normal and happy—young families creating lives together.

Two girls who went to the same elementary school as my brothers and I lived a few houses away with their parents. From the outside, their lives seemed perfectly happy. They went to school just like us. Their parents would wave to us as we drove by and would stop by if we were outside and talk with my parents.

Then it all changed. We would hear arguing once in a while. Then the arguing became more frequent and more intense. Eventually, we stopped seeing the father doing normal household chores like taking out the garbage or washing the cars. Word spread that the parents had separated and gotten divorced.

Overnight, their mother looked like she had aged 10 years. What was once jet black hair had gone gray. What was once a youthful glow in her skin became a shade of drab.

How did she age so quickly? How was this possible? This was one of my first memories seeing stress drain the youth out of someone’s appearance.

Now that we got that out of the way, what causes this rapid aging?
