Skin Care Tips During the Summer Season . [Part - II]

Why is it necessary to cover your body completely during the summer season?

 

  •  Wear full sleeved cotton clothes so your arms are protected from the sun.
  •  It is a well known fact that the sun really causes damage on our skin. When the ultra-violoet rays from the sun get in touch with our skin
  • It will cause collagen to break down at higher rate when compared to the naturally occurting chronologic aging.
  • This happens in the second layer of the skin a.k.a dermis.
 
As described above, sunlight damages collagen fibers and causes the accumulation of abnormal elastin.
When this elastin accumulates, enzymes called metalloproteinases are produced in larger quantities.
 
This process does not always work well and some of these metalloproteinases in fact do break down the collagen.
This would then result in the formation of solar scars which are disorganized collagen fibers. Wrinkles formation takes place when the skin repeats this imperfect rebuilding process.
 
As a follow up to the above mentioned solar effect on the skin, it can be said that the safest time to be out in the sun is the early morning.
 
Minimize sun exposure between 10 - 4 p.m. when the worst and greatest quantity of UV light exists.
