Unprotected Sun Exposure Increases the Processes of Skin Aging


The natural processes of aging cause many changes in the body. One of the most noticeable problems is when decreased exfoliation and collagen production cause skin aging on your face. This causes wrinkles and sagging in key locations on the face. It can also be significantly increased by unprotected sun exposure.

Without the benefit of protection from a high SPF-rated sunblock, it will eventually lead to sunburn. When this happens, the skin cells in the upper and even middle layers of the skin start to die. The healing and regeneration process can be slow, thus accelerating the process of skin aging. While a single sunburn might not be catastrophic, the effects can compound to accelerate skin aging, making you look older than your years.

If you know you are going to be exposed to the sun for an extended amount of time, you should apply one of the antioxidant sunblocks offered at Cascade Cosmetic Surgery Center and Medical Spa. Not only do they help protect your skin, but the antioxidant ingredients also help nourish your skin and maintain its natural repair processes. It’s a good idea to reapply the sunblock frequently and use a lip balm with an SPF rating.

If you want to nourish your skin and protect it from the effects of sun exposure in Utah County, Utah, you should call 801-762-8989 to talk to your cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Trenton C. Jones, M.D..
