Preventing Signs of Aging in the Sun

May 1 2011

During the summer months, it is of utmost importance that you protect your skin from the signs of aging. There are procedures that can treat these signs of aging and create a more youthful appearance, but prevention is also beneficial. It is most important to do this during the summer months due to the high UV rays.

Summer Tips for Youthful Skin

  • Apply sunscreen – a minimum of SPF 30 is recommended and should be applied daily. Applying sunscreen only when making trips to the beach will not be beneficial.
  • Cover up – even when hitting the beach, make sure that you wear light, loose, long clothing that keeps your skin covered up. A hat to protect your head and face is a wise idea.
  • Moisturize – a consistent skincare regimen focused heavily on moisturization can help prevent the development of lines and wrinkles as a result of the sun.
  • Consistent face washing – when you have been applying sunscreen and other products to your face, it is important that it is removed before it clogs the pores.
