So many people do their best to look young, but one thing they forget to take care of is their skin when they are outside. And it is easy to do. Unprotected sun exposure is the leading cause of premature aging skin.
While a sun kissed look may be attractive for some, skin imperfections start early when sun exposure comes into the picture. It does not happen overnight, either, it creeps up on you instead. In fact, once it surfaces it can add on years.
Skin care professionals break premature skin aging into two categories: intrinsic and extrinsic.
While intrinsic is related to things like genetics, extrinsic comes from the environment. A prime example of this is not having a solar defense. Reports estimate that nearly 80 percent of extrinsic premature skin aging is caused by ultra violet rays.
Along with the sun, other extrinsic reasons for early skin damage may include:
Repeated facial expressions
Sleeping positions face down or fetal
Since sun damage is a leading cause for premature aging skin, these side effects can include age spots, blotchy pigmentation and tone, facial spider veins, wrinkles, freckles, loss of tone and firmness, and roughness.
These are examples all photoaging. It is a word often used among skin care professionals. Photoaging determines how much sun damage a person has sustained over their lifetime with their skin.
With every year that passes, skin gets weaker and succumbs to more damage from sun exposure. For those who work and play outdoors, signs of photoaging can pop up in their twenties.
Obagi Nu-Derm Blender is a fantastic pick to correct pigmentation issues. Its potent hydroquinone reverses signs of aging by improving skin texture at the cellular level. Obagi Nu-Derm Blender works best when coupled with Obagi Tretinoin Cream. The beneficial ingredient in this cream is Retin-A.

Last, but certainly not least, remember to incorporate a sun protection routine to fight off premature skin aging. Sunscreen along with a treatment regimen will keep skin looking renewed.
