The truth about sun and skin

It’s nothing new. We know that too much exposure to the sun’s UVA/UVB rays is detrimental to our skin. But what exactly happens and why?

Well, the sun can be helpful with the production of vitamin D, which is a nutrient needed for good bones and protection from free radicals. Yet, when the skin’s outer layer gets too much sun, as in prolonged exposure and sunburn, it can reduce the skin’s elasticity, causing fine lines, wrinkles, and dark spots –as well as skin cancer.

So protection from the sun is important. Staying out of the sun during peak daytime hours (10-2) is a good measure, as is wearing an SPF product on your skin. Lord & Lily’s SPF 25 BB Cream is one such product that protects, hydrates and brightens the skin – all without chemicals, preservatives and emulsifiers that can cause other damage. Finding a natural product that’s effective is important for good health, as are those that provide moisture and anti-ageing properties that can reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Also helpful is an eye cream that can add moisture to the eye area, while providing active ingredients such as Vitamin C, Collagen and Aloe Vera to help restore elasticity and the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles as well.
