Treatment For Sun Damage And Discoloration

Maintaining healthy, beautiful, youthful skin involves myriad factors. Easily the most important, however, is keeping your complexion smooth, even, and unblemished.

For those who like to spend time in the sun, this can often be more challenging. That’s where skin repair for sun damage and discoloration comes in. If you’re curious about the best skincare for sun damage, you’ve come to the right place.

What is Sun Damage?

Sun damage occurs when UVA and UVB rays hit your skin, causing it to burn and sometimes darken. This can happen anywhere on the body, but is most common on frequently exposed areas like the hands and face.

Sun damage can be temporary – when you get a sunburn, it fades and then heals. Other times, and especially as we age, the damage is permanent, and you will see discoloration, patchiness, or spotting that does not diminish with time.

Even if you don’t burn, damage can still occur in the DNA of your lower dermal layers. When this happens, those dark spots and areas of hyperpigmentation may not emerge for years. That’s why it’s sometimes confusing when your complexion presents you with discoloration you can’t account for.

The right healing tools can help reverse and prevent sun-damaged skin.

How to Heal Sun-Damaged Skin

If you have sun-damaged skin, take a two-pronged approach: Healing and prevention. One will return your closer skin to its previous youthful state, while the other will help prevent damage in the future.

Prevent Sunburn and Correct Skin Tone

First and foremost, don’t let any more damage occur. You should always use an SPF 50 sunscreen or greater. Also, make sure it’s a mineral-based sunscreen, as this is a much more natural approach for your body than the chemicals used in some formulae.

Mineral-based options will help you brighten your complexion, minimize discoloration, and even out your tone over time – all while shielding you from those damaging UV rays.

Make sure you choose one that will support the skin’s moisture barrier rather than sapping it. This will help lock in moisture, reducing fine lines and wrinkles. Voilà: youthful glow returned.

Use Moisturizing Cream Daily

The second step in maintaining an excellent complexion is to repair any damage you might already have done. For instance, a good hand repair cream can help you do this. The one from Sobel Skin helps you minimize hyperpigmentation, age spots, fine lines, and wrinkles. Plus, it helps to fight back against premature skin aging caused by UVA/UVB rays.

You should also take care to repair, smooth, and strengthen the skin on your face with a product such as Bio Hyaluronic Moisture Cream Extreme. Applying this to your face daily helps to lock in moisture, making lines and wrinkles less evident. Moreover, it will help to fade those dark spots over time – but only with regular use.

The truth is, the sun’s not your enemy –  so long as you take the right approach and have the best products to treat sun damage and discoloration!
