Your Skin and Summer Sun Exposure

1310604226__Intellishade SPF 45 MatteThe sun’s rays or a tanning booth make us feel good, and in the short term, make us look good.  Over time the sun’s ultraviolet light damages the elastin fibers in our skin.  When these fibers break down, the skin begins to sag, stretch, and lose its ability to go back into place after stretching.  Sun exposure causes most of the wrinkles and age spots on our face,  accelerating the effects of aging and increases your risk for developing skin cancer.

Luckily there are many precautions you can take to avoid sun damage while still enjoying outdoor activities.   A floppy hat is a point on trend for summer while keeping your face protected.  It’s hard not to notice a woman’s fashion sense with Tom Ford sunglasses, a great sunhat,  dress or crop pants at any outdoor activity, it speaks sophistication and style.   For sheer coverage while protecting your skin I apply Revision’s Intellishade three in one moisturizer, sunscreen, and tinted makeup.  Sold only by physician and produced in Dallas, Texas.  This broad band spectrum UVA and UVB protecting coverage matches every skin tone, while evening out skin tone and diminishing small skin imperfections.  Revision Intellishade contains pore minimizing technology with powerful wrinkle reducing peptides.  Great for women on the go this one step product is an essential key to fighting sun damage in summer months not to overlook; exposure to sunlight during the winter months puts you at the same risk as exposure during the summertime.
