6. Protect Skin from Harmful Sunrays
Exposure to the ultraviolet rays of sun can damage your skin’s collagen leading to wrinkles. The best thing would be to not go out when the sun shines at its best. However, that’s not always possible. So, the choice limits here to protecting yourself. Here are some ways to protect yourself and your skin from these harsh sun rays.
- Use a sunscreen with an SPF of at least 15 whenever going out in sun. Better if you can use a broad-spectrum sunscreen having an SPF of 25 to 30. It is effective in protecting you against UVA and UVB radiation from the sun. Enhanced sunscreens containing vitamin E or soy isoflavones can also shield and strengthen your skin barrier by assisting in reproducing collagen.
- Take along accessories like hats, scarves, umbrella. When you are out for longer, you should re-apply your sunscreen and if that’s not possible, use anything that will block sun-rays from penetrating your skin.
- Wear sunglasses to avoid eye wrinkles when going out in the sun. Eyes are sensitive and so is the skin around them. Strong sunrays make you squint which also leads to wrinkle formation around eyes. So prevent these fine lines, invest some money on quality sunglasses. Cheaper brands can damage your invaluable eyes!
