How to Reverse, Protect, and Heal Sun Damaged Skin with Light Therapy
With summer ending, you might be heading into the Fall season with a little sun damage. Sunburns and peeling skin never looked good on anybody. All the extra exposure to the UVA/UVB rays may have attacked your glowing appearance. Here are some ways you can recover, heal, and reverse this summer’s sun damage:
Add light therapy to your skin care routine
Long, unprotected sun exposure slows collagen production and increase the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Anti-aging light therapy devices revive and stimulate collagen production, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Red, infrared, and amber lights increase circulation, reducing the appearance of redness and encourage cellular repair.
Protect skin with broad spectrum sunscreen
According to the American Cancer Society, traditional sunscreen only blocks UVB rays and allows UVA rays to penetrate deep into the hypodermis, leading to signs of aging, sagging skin, and uneven skin tones. When skin is protected with broad spectrum UVB/UVA applied sun screen, less sun damage occurs. Be sure to reapply at least every two hours.
Exfoliate to reveal youthful skin
Removing dead skin cells may help reveal smooth, bright, lustrous skin. By scrubbing gently with a textured cloth, extra layers of dead skin holding on to brown pigments can be removed, resulting in an even skin tone.
Green tea moisturizer
UV exposure encourages early onset of wrinkles and skin aging. Treating skin with a green tea moisturizer can provide antioxidants and anti-inflammatory responses in the skin, which slow the signs of aging. Pro tip: after cleansing facial skin, apply green tea moisturizer before anti-aging light therapy treatment to increase the green tea’s effectiveness up to 10 times.
