It’s never too late – four steps to improving sun damaged skin

The sun…it feels so good, how could it be bad??  Unfortunately, that warmth also means uneven skin tone, dark spots, wrinkles, and sagging skin.  If you were an irresponsible youngster like me you had a misspent youth, baking yourself all summer long with nothing but baby oil between your skin and the sun.  In fact, unless you never ever venture outside, you probably have sun damage.  The good news is that it is never too late to improve sun damaged skin.

As a RoC Ambassador, I have access to some excellent products and I particularly love their sun protection products.

1.  The first step to repairing sun damaged skin is proper cleansing and exfoliation.  Dead skin cells inhibit the health of skin, and dead skin holds onto the pigmentation that causes uneven skin tone.  Two products I recommend include RoC Max Resurfacing Facial Cleanser, with micro-spheres that smooth skin and exfoliate dirt, oil and dead skin, and RoC Daily Resurfacing Discs. These are soap free, oil free, hypoallergenic disks that are great for reducing fine lines and wrinkles while cleansing.

2. Treat skin with tons of antioxidants.  Antioxidants fight the free radicals that cause skin damage, including skin cancer. RoC’s Hexinol products, such as the Multi Correxion 5 in 1 Restoring Night Cream, are exactly what skin needs to look, feel and act younger.This awesome night moisturizer is the result of 7 years of research and it is a dream date for dry skin. Not only does it moisturize, it also firms skin and evens out skin tone. It is a wonderful treatment for mature skin and skin that has been damaged by the sun.

3.  Use retinol to reduce discoloration and fine lines and wrinkles.  Retinol is the best anti-aging ingredient around for repairing collagen, reducing pore size, evening out skin tone, and reducing fine lines and wrinkles.  Retinol is the answer to turning back time for sun damaged skin.

4. Be hyper vigilant about sun protection!  You want broad spectrum protection from both UVA and UVB rays, and an SPF of 15 at the very least.  RoC has two awesome products that I highly recommend. Roc Multi Correxion 5 in 1 Daily Moisturizer contains both Broad Spectrum Sunscreen SPF 30 and anti-aging ingredients.  This covers both your skin treatment and your moisturizing for the day, along with the much needed SPF protection your skin needs.

RoC Retinol Correxion Deep Wrinkle Daily MoisturizerRoC Retinol Correxion Deep Wrinkle Daily Moisturizer is perfect for those with normal to dry skin. Not only is this a retinol product, it also has an in-part avobenzone sunscreen for daytime sun protection. The cream is smooth and sinks in quickly, leaving a satin finish. It reduces the look of expression lines and also provides you with your sunscreen needs at the same time.

So don’t despair…even if you already have sun damaged skin, you can start the recovery process right now and still enjoy those lazy summer days.  – Lisa
