6 Simple Habits to Prevent Skin Aging Caused by Sun Damage

Now before you think of going out and having that sexy sun-kissed skin this summer, never forget that too much sun can also be harmful to your health. One of these is damaging your skin and speeding up the process of aging and wrinkle formation. But this doesn’t mean that you have to minimize the fun…so here are some quick and easy tips to protect yourself and slow down skin aging:

1. Always wear sunscreen.
This is probably one of the easiest to do when you’ve decided to stay under the sun. Protect the most vulnerable parts of you—usually the hands and face. Remember to choose a product that has an SPF 15 or greater. As I have mentioned in one of my posts before, the higher, the better and the longer time you’ll be able to have fun without worrying skin damage!

2. Wear sunglasses
This is a simple way to block out some extra UV rays around your eyes, which is one of the places wrinkles first appear. It also has an added benefit of preventing UV rays to cause cataracts and macular degeneration. Choose one that will surely protect you…and make you look cool!

3. Wear a hat with a brim.
                To protect your eyes, it’s between this and the sunglasses (or if you’re a unique type of person, you can have both). Whether it’s a floppy straw on the beach or a fedora while strolling the city, a hat with a brim can protect your face from the damaging sun exposure.

4. Avoid exposing yourself to the sun between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. This is the time when its rays are the strongest.

5. Stay hydrated.
Dehydration is one of the major causes of skin wrinkles. Drinking a lot of water can help your skin to stay moist and elastic…plus the added benefit of making you look younger.

6. Use a moisturiser.
            Never underestimate the power of a simple moisturizer. This can help your skin stay hydrated and replenish the moisture elements in the upper layers of your skin. Most moisturizers nowadays have the added benefit of SPF so it’s twice the protection.
