Sun damaged holiday skin

14th September 2012  : 

We all know it's important to wear a high-factor sun cream when we go on holiday, yet a recent survey reveals that 44 per cent of holidaymakers use a lotion with an SPF of 15 or less and a staggering 13 per cent of us are still using tanning oils with an SPF of 10 or lower when they jet off abroad.

If you don't effectively protect your skin from the sun, then you will get sunburn, which can lead to wrinkles and sun damaged skin. In fact, a suntan itself is a sign of skin damage and too much exposure to the sun can cause you to look older before your time.

Repairing the skin damaged caused by holiday in the sun

Of course, this year the British summer has been awful, so it is all too tempting to skip the sun cream when the sun does come out or when you hit the beach on holiday. If you have been caught red faced and suffered sunburn this year, then don't worry because it is possible to repair the damage with beauty procedures such as laser treatments and microdermabrasion.

These non-surgical treatments are a fantastic way of turning back the clock without going under the knife and they can help to improve the look of wrinkles and acne as well as repairing sun damaged skin.

If you have sun spots and discolouration of the skin that have been caused by years of exposure to the sun, then laser treatments can be used to treat these as well as healing the damage caused by more recent sunburn.

It has been reported that 92 per cent of British holidaymakers have suffered sunburn at some stage of their life, so if your skin is stressed out from the sun's harmful rays, then beauty procedures such as these can help to repair your skin.
