Habit Hack: Understanding and Protecting Against Photoageing

Understanding Photoageing

Photoageing refers to the premature ageing of the skin caused by prolonged exposure to ultraviolet (UV) radiation from the sun as well as high-energy visible (HEV) light and infrared light. This type of damage accelerates the natural ageing process, leading to various skin concerns.

Signs of Sun Damage

  • Hyperpigmentation: Sunspots, age spots, and uneven skin tone are common signs of sun-induced damage.
  • Wrinkles and Fine Lines: UV radiation breaks down collagen and elastin fibres, resulting in wrinkles and sagging skin.
  • Dry, Rough Texture: Sun exposure can cause your skin to become dry, rough, and leathery over time.
  • Dullness: Accumulation of dead skin cells can make your skin look dull and congested.

How to Shield Your Skin from Sun Damage

  • Daily Sunscreen
  • Protective Clothing
  • Seek Shade (between 10 AM and 4 PM)
  • Antioxidant Skincare
