The Dangers of Sun Damage

Daily and proper use of the correct sunscreen is one of the most powerful anti aging tools for keeping your skin looking young and healthy and reducing your risk of skin cancer.  Use of sunscreen should be a daily habit regardless of the season or weather.   When purchasing a sunscreen ensure that it provides both UVA and UVB protection.  My favorite sunscreen is the Control Correctives Aroma Matte sunscreen SPF 30.  This product provides great protection while at the same time a very pleasant experience to use.  It gives nice hydration without feeling too heave and has a great soft watermelon scent.

Antioxidants need to be used in tandem along with sunscreen to enhance the skin’s ability to fight off free radical damage. Free radical damage is caused by exposure to environmental factors such as the sun and pollution.

Not only are topical antioxidants important but the skin is the bodies largest organ so a diet rich in antioxidants is also vital for optimal health.  Colorful fruits and vegetables are a rich source of antioxidants but with today’s hectic lifestyles it can be hard to obtain all we need.
