Gravity, genetics, and age all play a role in the development of wrinkles, lines, and lax skin, but sun damage or “photo-aging” is the main culprit. UV rays enter your skin, affecting the DNA and altering skin quality and appearance. For those with very fair skin, it takes only five to ten minutes exposed to the sun for the damage to begin. While sunlight provides your body with needed vitamin D, the damage caused by UV rays may cause you to rethink how much time you spend in the sun with your skin unprotected.
What are the symptoms of sun-damaged skin?
The damage to your skin structure can include any of the following:
- Dry, flaky skin
- Fine lines, wrinkles
- Sagging skin
- Lax skin
- Age spots
- Sun spots
- Actinic keratosis
- Uneven skin tone
- Rough skin texture
- Crow’s feet
- Laugh lines
- Frown lines
- Creases on brow
