Did you know that sun can damage your skin, even on a grey rainy day? Up to 80 percent of the sun’s rays can pass through clouds! The depletion of the ozone layer has increased our risk of sun damage from harmful UV rays.
The sun’s UV light is the primary cause of premature skin ageing and pigmentation, not to mention skin cancer. It can leave skin looking leathery and result in the breakdown of collagen resulting in deep lines. Studies show that those below age 55 who apply sunscreen regularly have 24% less chance of developing these signs of aging than those who don’t.
The New England Journal of medicine published a picture of a man who drove trucks for 29 years without wearing sunscreen. It shows dramatic unilateral dermatoheliosis, or photoageing, caused by prolonged exposure to UV rays. Take a look at a video in the comments section that talks you through the best sunscreens. #PCAProsKnow: SPF Explained
