Sun Damaged Skin Treatment Harley Street, LondonHaving an effective skincare routine is vital. Experienced dermatologists recommend applying a daily broad-spectrum sunscreen with a minimum SPF of 30. This will reduce long-term damage to the skin caused by UVA and UVB in sunlight. Failure to do so is likely to result in premature ageing (80% or more of which is thought to be due to sun damage), but may also lead to more serious consequences such as skin cancer. Premature skin damage often manifests as fine lines, wrinkles and uneven skin tone, especially in exposed areas like the face, chest and hands. Excessive sun exposure over the course of one’s lifetime can also lead to changing moles, as well as precancerous or cancerous skin lesions, all of which require medical attention.
