How you rank in photoaging?

by | Jun 5, 2018 | Wellness & Prevention | 0 comments

The middle layer of our skin, the dermis, contains collagen, elastin and other fibers that support our skin structure; UV radiations (UVA and UVB) cause damages to these elements and trigger photoaging.
Exposure to ultraviolet light (either UVA or UVB rays) from sunlight accounts for 90 percent of the symptoms of premature skin aging, including wrinkles. The most important skincare product that’s available to prevent wrinkles is sunscreen, the proper use of sunscreen to block both UVA and UVB radiation is an important weapon in the battle against wrinkles and photoaging. Unfortunately, most people do not use sunscreen correctly and on daily basis.
Skin damage is classified according to a special scale that help dermatologists and health professionals to choose the right treatments: the GOGLAU Classification. Mild damages can start in your late twenties and show minimal pigment change, but the evolution might speed up if you do not apply appropriate protection and safe habits.
