Environmental Aggressors

The skin has natural protection protection against some environmental aggressors, however, as it comes into contact with more environmental aggressors, the skin can find this to be more of a challenge, affecting both its overall appearance and condition.

Some environmental factors that contribute to skin damage are sunlight, pollution and hot and cold temperatures.

Sun Damage & Sun Protection

The sun is the source of energy that sustains life, but accumulated exposure without adequate protection can have negative consequences on the skin. The main types of rays that damage our skin are UVA, UVB, and recent studies show now indicate perhaps Infrared rays (IR) too, all of which have the ability to penetrate the skin and cause damage. On the surface, this damage manifests as the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, sagging and loss of density, and an un-even looking skin tone, however beneath the skin's surface there is additional damage.

To adequately help to protect skin from the damaging effects of the sun, sun protection needs to be a part of an every day skincare routine. Options include ingredients that help to reflect the UV light, or ingredients that help to absorb UV light, or a combination of both.

It is also important to understand if the sun protection is deemed "broad spectrum". This indicates a level of protection from both UVA and UVB rays, all Skinceuticals sun care protection have a UVA logo. Whereas SPF (sun protection factor) only indicates your protected from the UVB rays.
