The sun may feel amazing on your skin while it’s happening. There’s nothing better than a day at the beach or in the garden with the sun shining down on your face. Unfortunately, there’s nothing worse when you get home and look in the mirror. Sun damaged skin is not only unsightly, but it can be quite dangerous as well.
What is Sun Damaged Skin?
Initially, sun damage can take a number of forms. It could be a bronze tan around your face but a paler space where you had sunglasses on. It could also be a sunburn. You might also notice that you look quite a bit older after you’ve been in the sun. That’s because UV light can damage the elastin and collagen that naturally occur in your skin. When that’s damaged, your skin might sag or stretch too far.
No matter how the sun damage began, the result is almost always the same – uneven skin tone. Some areas of your skin will suddenly appear darker while others look much lighter. The problem here is that the UV light can create permanent change when it comes to the small blood vessels in your face, and that may mean a red look in various places around your face.
