SHIELD YOUR SKIN FROM THE SUN

HOW YOUR SKIN REACTS TO THE SUN

People living in the tropics are blessed with sunshine all year round and tanned skin is seen as a sign of health. But did you know that your radiant tan may be hiding skin injury?

As the sun beats down on your skin, your body works hard to protect it from the heat and harmful rays. It produces melanin, a brown pigment that acts as an "umbrella" to cover your cells. However, even with melanin, your skin needs extra protection.
Overexposure to the sun can result in skin damage in the form of:

  • Uneven skin pigmentation in various forms1
  • Age or liver spots
  • Bumpy patches of rough skin, commonly found on the face, ears, hands and forearms
  • Wrinkles, creases and sagging skin1
  • Weaker immunity2
  • Skin cancer

EFFECTS OF THE SUN ON ACNE

Along with the issues above, preventing sun damage is extra important if you have acne because you'll need to use a product that protects yet doesn't aggravate

your acne-prone skin. Some effects of the sun on acne-prone skin include:

  • Formation of blackheads and whiteheads (comedones)3
  • Increased development of oil-producing glands4
  • Skin aging4
  • Acne scarring5
