As we age, different things start to show up on our bodies as in wrinkles, sagging skin, age spots and freckles. So, what exactly is the difference between age spots and wrinkles?
First, lets say that most skin damage, comes from the sun.
However, there are spots that come from sun damage, and spots that are simply hereditary. I’ll tell you a little about both, but if you want a detailed explanation from top experts so that you can be knowledgable and safe, CLICK HERE TO SEE THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN AGE SPOTS AND FRECKLES.
Even on a gorgeous beach day, sunscreen, hats, glasses and protective clothing should be worn.
Of course, pure sunlight is necessary for the production of vitamin D, and that’s why so many of us suffer from the deficiency…we simply don’t get enough sunlight.
But…that doesn’t mean that extreme doses of the sun are not harmful to skin. Precaution is necessary if you’re going to be outdoors. And, if you are closer to the equator, have very light eye’s and skin tone, or burn easily, you have to be very careful.
You don’t want to burn as that puts you at a higher risk of skin cancer…and you want to be sure to use the right protection.
Your skin can remain beautiful and supple no matter what your age with the advances in skincare procedures and products available these days.
From skincare creams that reduce pigmentation…to lasers that are done in medical spas. There are preventative treatments so that you can ward off aging and regimens that can undo years of sun worshipping!
Find a reputable spa or dermatology office that is backed by science. Not just a place that pops up for weekend fixes as in home parties and offices that has a “specialist” there for the day.
Whatever you chose for your skincare regimen, be sure to practice your due diligence and educate yourself before applying something to your skin…or having a service done to you.
I personally have had microdermabrasion, peels, and lasers to combat years of tanning. My skin is darker in color due to my partial Mediterranean heritage, so I have to let the esthetician know that in advance.
Beautiful skin is a sign of a good life, healthy choices, and good skin care. It’s great to know that we have so many options! Whether it be age spots and freckles, or looking for a new skin care option. Be smart when you choose yours!
