Sun damage and how to undo it

Skin uses sunlight to help manufacture vitamin D, which is important for bone formation and daily functions in our body. However, over-exposure to these ultraviolet rays are extremely detrimental to the skin. Prolonged exposure to UV rays causes skin to produce more melanin in a bid to protect against sunburn. Over time, this might show up as dark brown spots or pigmentations that can be extremely difficult to remove. The radiation from the sun could cause skin to lose elasticity and collagen, resulting in dryness and premature wrinkles. Here are some skin loving ingredients and treat that you could consider to reverse the damage and help your skin repair itself:

Retinoids

Dermatologists often recommend Retinoids (a form of vitamin A) as they are extremely helpful in reducing wrinkles and others signs of sun damage. However, a potential downside is that Retinoids can actually make your skin more sensitive to the sun and is less than ideal for prolonged usage.

Vitamin C

Vitamin C is one of the safest and most effective ways to counter discoloration and lighten those pesky pigmentations! Did you know that taking vitamin C in the form of tablets or fruits orally is only 10% as effective as applying it topically? However, the flipside of topical vitamin C is that it is ultra-vulnerable to light and heat, and loses effectiveness extremely quickly. Look out for Summe Cosmetics Cell C Line of products (available for retail at all Fresver Beauty outlets), that pack a punch of stabilised Vitamin C for superior radiance and brightening!

Aloe Vera

The well known cure-all plant calms the skin and has natural healing properties! (Quick tip: For a dehydrated and sensitive skin, mask up the flesh of an aloe plant and apply directly to your skin. Rinse gently after 15min and experience smooth baby-skin!)
