As the sun has been appearing more frequently after these welcomed rains have disbanded, the summer heat has slowly begun to rise. Sun damage and skin care are once again at the top of the health and wellness concern. Years of sun exposure can be tough on the health of your skin. But fortunately, the years of a lifestyle that is unconducive to total well-being can be treated, and in some ways, reversed.
Sun damage takes its toll on the skin. It can leave your skin spotted, reddened, and flush. Skin tone may appear more harsh and uneven across larger areas. Even greater concern are serious medical conditions that may arise with prolonged exposure. Fortunately, this summer is the perfect opportunity to have those unslightly blemishes and skin discoloration that comes from years of sun exposure.
