Watch the clock of your own skin!

Shortly, summer will be at its peak and it is no secret that the sunlight will lead to myriad effects on the skin ranging from sweat, dehydration, characteristic skin allergies, harsh sunburns, deep tanning and other problems. There have been numerous studies to prove that direct heat from sunlight can cause acute and chronic cumulative effects, which include mild or severe tanning, hyper pigmentation to ‘ageing’, among others.

There is very little you can do about the heat from sunlight. However, there is a lot you can do about the glow of your skin. Many imagine that this would not be a source of worry, if they were young. Instead of worrying about the change in weather, or even the age factor, there are some anti aging skin care measures you can take, to keep your skin young and healthy, the most crucial being limiting your exposure to the sun.

For those who are still in their 20s, there is not much to ponder over skin maintenance. However, the main goal is to prevent future skin damage and good skincare habits will help preserve your beautiful skin for a long time. However, those who are on the wrong side of 30s need to think seriously on ways such as anti aging treatments to maintain your skin and keep it glowing. Some of the largest international skincare clinics in Middle East have reinforced their commitment by offering the world’s best anti-ageing and skin maintenance services.

It is common knowledge that exposing the skin to UV sunrays causes age spots, which lead to wrinkles, loose skin and damage over the years. It is essential that you follow an appropriate anti aging skin care routine, to take care of your skin and protect it from the adverse effects of the sun. Harsh sun rays, environmental damage, internal stress and disease are reasons why your skin is the first to fall prey to ageing. Besides, your skin is exposed to harmful UV radiation and it undergoes damage due to sunrays.

As we age, our skin’s ability to replace damaged collagen cells diminishes. Dermatologists at clinics have an entire range of anti aging treatments specially designed to help everyone reverse the clock on ageing skin. Sunscreen should be applied at least 20 minutes before sun exposure; and then re-applied every 3 to 4 hours for ideal skin protection, across all exposed skin areas like the face, neck, ear, hands, etc.

Similarly, those in their 40s gradually begin losing the tightness of their skin, which starts having a dull texture, making their pores far more evident. People in this age group need to follow a stringent skincare regimen, which includes the use of a cream-based cleanser, twice a day. Most importantly, people in their 40s should use a high-quality night cream which contains retinol.

By age 50, skin renewal slows down to once every 9 weeks, which results in wrinkles, loss of elasticity, radiance and may also lead to discoloration. To make your skin glow, using products that contain alpha hydroxyl acid is the best bet, as it helps in cell renewal through exfoliation. Spare some time and attention this summer to get that flawless look, which differentiates you from the rest of the sweaty dull faces. A step taken for anti aging skin care right now will be worth millions saved in the long run for beauty and health.
