Extended time outside, whether you’re playing a sport or not, puts you at risk of sun damage, which in turn can cause sunburn, skin cancer, and premature aging. Athletes are a particularly important risk group, as many forget to apply sunscreen, wear uniforms that don’t adequately protect them for the sun, or even feel that sun protection directly interferes with their performance.
Certain signs can make a person look older than their age a lot earlier than they should! Both wrinkles and skin texture are influenced by the natural aging process and photoaging depending on your attitude to the sun and how much you are exposed.
Sun damage contributes to the faster development of the early signs of aging such as lines of expression, lack of elasticity or wrinkles. Aging, of course, is a natural process, but sun damage can be prevented and even reversed in some cases – but how?
Believe it or not, in the majority of cases, the sun is the culprit in making us seem older than we really are. An incredible 80% of facial aging is related to UV exposure1 through a process referred to as photoaging. But what exactly is photoaging, and why is it so important?
ISDIN visited Dr. Paloma Borregón, head of the Dermatology Unit at the Beteré Clinic in Madrid, Spain, where she talked to us about what the exposome is and the effects it has on our skin. She gave us her expert advice on the importance of protecting ourselves against the sun every day, and how to combine ISDIN products to create an effective anti-aging routine.
