Young people think UV rays only make their skin turn a darker shade. But the effects of UV rays go deeper. They even affect skin functions at a cellular level.
The ultraviolet rays of the sun primarily cause instability in melanin production. Melanin is produced as our body’s way of reversing the negative effects of radiation. But it will eventually lead to the appearance of age spots. Moreover, ultraviolet rays also damage collagen fibers and break down Vitamin A. In doing so, wrinkles and fine lines show up prematurely.
I am sure you do not want to see these aging problems plaguing our skin. Here are some ways to counteract negative radiation:
1. Get lots of sleep.
Unsurprisingly, sleep can really rejuvenate integumentary system functions. When we sleep, our body undergoes a repair stage. The vitamins and minerals needed are replenished. Moreover, the brain produces essential growth hormones that can speed up collagen reproduction and can correct damaged fibers.
Melatonin is one of the hormones that help counteract radiation. This hormone lessens the negative impact of UV rays to the dermis.
2. Take vitamin C supplements daily.
Vitamin C is not only beneficial for our immune system. This vitamin is also essential for core skin functions. It actually corrects damaged tissues. It also normalizes the excessive production of melanin. This vitamin also strengthens the functions of other vitamins such as Vitamin E. As a result, you can have young looking skin for a longer period of time.
3. Use a good natural moisturizer
To correct damages to your cells and tissues, you should look for a more reliable moisturizer. Search for a product with natural ingredients such as CynergyTK, Phytessence Wakame and Nano Lipobelle HEQ10.
CynergyTK is an ingredient that has been extracted from the wool of sheep. This ingredient supplies keratin to the skin. Functional keratin is imperative for collagen lubrication. Phytessence Wakame is a type of sea kelp that can help prevent the sudden loss of hyaluronic acid. This acid prolongs collagen life because it supplies moisture to collagen fibers. Nano Lipobelle HEQ10 gobbles up harmful free radicals. This free radical scavenger is made up of smaller molecular structure. Compared to other antioxidants, this works better topically because it can penetrate the various layers of the skin better.
4. Hydrate your skin using a good skin mask
I can vouch for the efficacy of avocado mask. Avocado is made up of linoleic acid and vitamin E. These are anti aging nutrients. Linoleic acid can bridge gap in damaged tissues and cells while Vitamin E can help nourish skin layers. It keeps skin cells healthy and supple.
Use these simple ways to prevent permanent damages caused by ultraviolet rays. Make sure you keep your dermis protected from the sun.
