We had an amazing Summer. Beaches, festivals, family BBQ’s, and spending long days outdoors. The sun provides us with benefits like vitamin D, but it also wreaks havoc on our skin.  Excessive sunlight exposure causes the skin to produce more melanin which in turn causes us to darken and tan. Melanin is like the body’s own natural defense against damaging rays from the sun.  Negative effects from overexposure include acne, a breakdown in the elastin of the skin, leading to wrinkles and sagging, and hyper-pigmentation (dark spots) – especially in already dark skin.

We are heading into fall, the air is cooler, but our skin is still sun kissed and looking good. For now…

We haven’t seen the damage caused yet. Have you seen this video? It shows what our skin really looks like – what we can’t see, the sun sees!
