Outdoor activities and exercise are very important components of a healthy lifestyle. But with cumulative exposure to the sun, especially over the years, our skin begins to show signs of damage and aging, called dermatoheliosis. A 3-part basic skin care regimen can help prevent and fight such damaging skin changes. This includes:
A repair cream that is best applied at bedtime. Retinoid creams are used for this purpose (tretinoin, tazarotene, adapalene). They fight signs of previous sun damage, stimulate new collagen, correct fine lines and wrinkles, and can have a preventive effect on the development of precancer lesions known as actinic keratoses.
A preventive cream to be applied in the morning. These creams are typically antioxidant molecules (especially vitamins C and E) that are able to fight free radical damage in the environment, and thus prevent future or ongoing sun-induced skin damage and aging. Antioxidant creams, most notably those with vitamin C, should be dispensed in a specially sealed tube, as opposed to jars, to avoid oxidation of the active molecules and therefore loss of its beneficial effects.
Sunscreen! It should be applied every morning, just before the make-up, if the latter is being used. An SPF of 30 offers excellent protection, blocking more than 97.5% of harmful sun rays. Use a light powder or paste-type sunscreen that reads noncomedogenic, to prevent acne flares.
