I am sure for many of you when you were younger it was the popular thing to lie out in the sun with no sunscreen or minimal protection. Unfortunately you were not aware of the damage done to your skin. There is still time to reverse the aging process.
1. Exfoliate your skin. Chemical exfoliation is one way to bring brightness and luster to your face. Chemical exfoliation dissolves dead skin cells instead of scrubbing them like buffers and granule cleansers do. A recent article in Women’s Health magazine recommends when choosing a chemical exfoliant, opt for a product with a 5 to 8 percent concentration of glycolic acid. Remember to always use as directed.
2. Use Antioxidants. Antioxidants help protect the skin’s DNA to prevent cancer while also protecting the collagen and elastic tissue from free radicals that can cause wrinkles and sagging skin. Of course you can eat food that is rich in antioxidants, but you should also apply creams or serums or both to your face which will absorb quickly into your skin. Vitamin C based antioxidants are the best for reducing uneven brown pigmentation.
3. Get rid of those brown spots. There is a remedy for the brown spots that appear on skin as we age. The product you will need is called “skin bleach.” (It’s not real bleach, never put bleach on your skin). It works by stopping the skin’s uneven production of melanin (brown pigment) that your skin produces when it tries to fight UV radiation. If you choose to use this product, use only as directed. However, you must wear sun screen if you are going to be out in the sun. Of course it would be best to avoid the sun while you are using this product, but if that is impossible, then you need to wear a high SPF when you are outside. Avoiding a sunburn is imperative when using skin bleach for brown spots.
I hope you all have a great week and remember to make healthy choices!
