At the heart of your anti-aging skin care routine: protection from the sun!
As you know, when it comes to anti-aging and your beauty routine, the first step is to protect your skin from the sun and UV rays. Therefore, throughout the summer months, you were meticulously applying every skin-protecting recommendation, right? Well done!
Now that autumn has arrived, we tend to forget about these types of good habits. Do we think we’ll just pick things up again in spring? That would be a mistake. The dermatologists approved by Health Canada recommend protecting your skin throughout the entire year.
Why is it important to protect your skin from the sun all year long?
Even if UVB rays, which cause sunburns, are weaker in autumn and winter, UVA rays do not waiver. In fact, UVA rays are responsible for premature aging of the skin. The World Health Organization explains that UVA rays penetrate deep into the skin and cause tissue to lose elasticity. As a result, skin begins to wrinkle.
UVA rays easily find their way to your skin
It is therefore essential to protect your skin every day, throughout the entire year. Clouds only block a small proportion of solar radiation, so don’t let your guard down on a gray day. Furthermore, snow, water, sand and cement act as reflectors and can even amplify the effects of the sun. And you know what? Even your car’s windshield or the windows that allow you to enjoy spectacular views of autumn foliage… well, UVA rays can penetrate those surfaces as well.
If your exposure and activity levels call for wearing sunscreen, it is recommended that you use one that is approved by the Canadian Dermatology Association.
In short, take full advantage of the autumnal sun, but make sure only the apples are turning red!
