Why do we get wrinkles? There’s many different factors that determine this but the main ones are your skin tone, genetics and history of sun exposure. Fair skin people who have a history of UV ray exposure are especially at risk of wrinkles and skin damage. In fact, 90% of aging is attributed to sun exposure.Age Spots
Age spots (lentigines) are caused by sun exposure and usually appear on the face, chest, back and hands. You should use extra caution to avoid excessive sun exposure if age spots run in your family. Anti-aging Treatment
- The most effective anti-aging products that you can buy are sunscreen and moisturizer. By moisturizing, you’re trapping water in the skin which can help reduce the appearance of some fine lines making your complexion brighter.
- Anti-aging products that you can buy is broad spectrum so it blocks UVA and UVB rays. Any time you use sunscreen it should also be broad spectrum.
- Try an anti-aging serum to soften wrinkles. Most products like this can take up to 6 weeks to notice a difference so be patient and give the product time to work.
