Up to 80% of visible ageing is caused by exposure to UV rays emitted by the sun. UV radiation can be broken down into three components: UVA, UVB and UBC. Each component has different wavelengths, the longest being UVA which can penetrate skin, damaging to deeper layers.

Both UVB and UVA cause sunburn, inflammation, skin cancer and DNA damage as well as premature ageing (medically known as photoaging).

The major signs of sun-damaged skin include pigmentation, lines and wrinkles and a change in skin texture. Excessive (and unprotected) sun exposure is also known to cause sunspots and skin cancer, which is why annual skin checks are important.

Especially living in Australia, you need a skincare solution to help reverse the after-effects and prevent further damage from the sun’s harmful rays.
