Why is sun defense important?
Protect yourself from the sun and maintain younger looking skin with the comprehensive sun protection.
According to CDC, the sun’s UV rays can damage the skin in as little as 15 minutes. It can increase the rate the skin ages. It can cause lines, wrinkles, brown spots, pigmentations, skin discolorations, moles, skin cancer, and many more. It is one of the major contributors to the many skin problems that we see today. Thus, it is highly important to protect your skin and have a great sun defense regimen.
Photodamage is therefore sun light induced skin changes of accelerated aging and disease formation such as wrinkling, inflammation, redness, dyspigmentation, and skin cancer. Light from the sun damages the skin via three parts of its spectrum: UVA (320-400 nm), UVB (290-320 nm), and infrared (760-1 mm) bands of light. Of these bands, the largest contribution is infrared light, followed by UVA, and last by UVB. UVA, the predominant form of ultraviolet radiation, penetrates deeply into the skin. As such, UVA promotes reactive oxygen species and free radical formations. On the other hand, UVB, the minor portion of the UV light, causes sunburn and damages genetic material. Both UVA and UVB light thus cause photoaging, premature wrinkling, skin cancer. Meanwhile, infrared, a often ignored source of sun exposure, also has been shown to degrade cellular proteins, leading to premature wrinkle formation.
Want the most comprehensive sun protection?
Consider the following treatment options.
The most comprehensive sun protection uses both topical, oral, and office-based photoprotection.
- Topical protection refers to the liberal use of daytime sunscreens, DNA repair enzymes, redness reduction spray, and nighttime natural anti-inflammatories to reduce the daytime damage. During the daytime, sunscreen needs to be applied liberally every four to six hours, before sun exposure. At nighttime, natural anti-inflammatory moisturizers are also essential.
- Oral photoprotection refers to consumption of natural anti-inflammatories, which reduces inflammation and free radical induced by sunlight. Oral photoprotection should be used prior to sun exposure, during outdoor activities, or hasten sun tan or sunburn recovery. Important natural anti-inflammatories include: polypodium leucotomos, grape seed extract, beta-carotene, vitamin C, and vitamin E.
- Office based photoprotection refers to office based treatments which further and more quickly replenish internal body natural anti-inflammatories with external low-level light therapy aimed to reduce inflammation. Office based photoprotection therapy may be utilized prior to, or after excessive sun exposure. One example of office-based treatment is SkinCalmSM, a rapid, effective, gentle external and internal combination anti-inflammatory treatment for sensitive, red, dry and inflamed skin without downtime.
