Repair a sun-damaged complexion with these dermatologist-recommended skin care products.
If you’ve spent any time outside over the years, it’s likely that your skin has sun damage to some degree. Sun damage causes skin to develop wrinkles, dryness and can also lead to dark spots caused by excessive melanin production. These spots, also known as hyperpigmentation marks, can be troublesome to lighten and need specialized treatment products. These dermatologist-recommended sun damage products repair and rejuvenate your complexion for that youthful glow you’ve been missing.
Sun exposure is one of the most influential factors when it comes to skin aging. Ultraviolet and infrared solar energy, when absorbed into the skin, can lead to a breakdown in collagen and elastin fibers, and can even lead to DNA damage and an increased risk of skin cancer. When you notice that your skin is losing its elasticity, developing fine lines and wrinkles or dark spots, it’s time to look for products that combat these signs of sun damage.
While there is no product that can reverse the effects of sun damage overnight, you can repair your complexion with a combination of specially formulated anti-aging products and smart sun protection habits. First, look for products that contain brightening and collagen-boosting ingredients like vitamin C, and choose hydroquinone treatment products to actively lighten stubborn spots of hyperpigmentation for an even skin tone. We recommend the Obagi line of skin care products for hydroquinone-based skin lightening, vitamin C products and effective sunscreens. Once you have an anti-aging skin care regimen started, you also need to protect your skin on a daily basis with sunscreen. Always apply sunscreen generously (about 1 ounce is necessary to cover all exposed skin), and limit your time outdoors between the hours of 10 AM and 2 PM.
