Summer may be behind us, but the effects it has on our skin are not. The summer sun accelerates the photoaging process, meaning a "healthy tan" is really a sign of sun damage.
Dr. David E. Bank tells us that anti-aging is a year-round commitment and there are three key tips to achieving and maintaining younger, healthier looking skin.
Avoid Direct Sunlight
The first step in preventing photoaging is to avoid direct sunlight, particularly during peak hours.
Daily use of an SPF of at least 15
Because not all exposure can be avoided, daily use of an SPF of at least 15 is an essential step for protecting your skin from the sun’s aging rays. Be sure to select a broadspectrum formula that protects from both UVA and UVB rays.
Look for Products with Active Ingredients
Anti-oxidants such as Vitamin C or E, Green Tea or Grape Seed extract may have a synergistic effect when used with sunscreens.
There are many anti-aging procedures and treatments available to fight the signs of photodamage. For an effective topical treatment, Dr. Bank likes to prescribe Renova because it's clinically proven to reduce fine lines and wrinkles when used as part of a comprehensive skin care regimen. It's also been shown to increase pro-collagen.
