Excessive exposure to the sun early in life can make a person look older than he or she really is. This premature wrinkling and skin damage from sun exposure is called photoaging. Photoaging, unlike natural aging, results in:
Coarse, dry skin
Freckling and skin discoloration
Deep wrinkles Blotchy, irregular pigmentation Broken capillaries and redness Wrinkles and lines Sun spots and freckles
HOW WE GET WRINKLES
UV rays can break down collagen and elastin, two proteins that keep skin firm and smooth.
HOW WE GET SUN OR AGE SPOTS
Your skin makes a chemical called melanin to protect itself against UV rays. Too much sun can cause a clump of it to form, which shows up as a flat brown or black spot.
HOW WE GET MELASMA
More than 6 million Americans get these splotchy brown or grey patches. Although experts aren’t certain of the exact reason for it, they know that sun exposure can cause melanin to go into overdrive and create the spots on the skin.
