Summer skin: the heat-wave continues but did you know some UV rays can and do get through to the skin and cause damage, even if you wear a high SPF. Although sunscreen allows one to stay in the sun longer, but doesn’t stop rays from penetrating the lower layers of the skin where they create more free radicals that would have occurred without lathering on the cream. It is not only crucial to always protect with sunscreen, but equally important to repair and restore skin against harmful free-radicals and UVA/B rays.
Over time, the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) rays damage the fibers in our skin called elastin, causing our skin to sag and stretch without the capacity to bounce back into place, causing wrinkles and fine lines. UV rays accounted for a huge 80% of skin ageing, including wrinkles, in a study of almost 300 women. The study also found that a two per cent increase in skin damage ages a face by three years.
Antioxidants eliminate free radicals and reduce cancer risk. Specific antioxidants have proven to be protective of the skin, acting as if it were a natural sunscreen. Our skin is so intelligently designed that when the sun’s UV rays hit it, the antioxidants that are in the body move upwards and form a protective shield that acts just like sunscreen. Naturally boost the epidermis’s resilience by consuming deliciously natural foods high in antioxidants, such as blackberries, avocado, red grapes and fresh fish.
