Here is our selection of skincare products that work well to repair sun damage to the skin. You'll find serums and even skin oils that promote healing. Our best advice is that you use an effective sunscreen to prevent UVA (UV Aging) of the skin. Use an SPF15 or higher daily even when walking about to do errands.
Sun damage can occur at any age, but the effects on the skin, especially premature wrinkling and pigmentation problems, become most apparent as we grow older. Prevention is the key. The most important measure to take is to limit your exposure to the sun, which is thought to be accountable for as much as 90 percent of skin aging. In fact, 70 percent of sun damage occurs without our even trying - while we ride our bike, walk our dogs, even drive our cars. These aging rays are present during all day light hours and tend to make us more susceptible to the shorter UVB rays that tan surface skin. Research shows that sesame oil decreases the impact of the sun's burning rays by about 30 percent. Olive, coconut and peanut oils, along with aloe vera, block out a good 20 percent. Helichrysum essential oil also screens ultraviolet rays (use a 2 percent dilution). The Xienta Institute for Skin Research in Pennsylvania reports that vitamin E in a 5 percent dilution not only reduces burning, but retards cell damage to underlying skin by decreasing oxidation. Phytotherapist Paul Duraffourd points out the cleansing virtues of carrot seed oil, as well as its positive effect on abscesses, ulcers, and even on epithelial cancers. Carrot seed oil can be used to treat cellular irregularities such as moles. A study done in 1990 shows that caraway is anti-carcinogenic when used topically. There is evidence that the same is true for citrus oils (which also have photosensitizing effects, so we are not recommending these oils for this purpose until more is learned about them). For a facial routine, follow the directions for dry skin. Sun-damaged skin also benefits from many of the suggestions for mature skin. - information came from the book, "The complete guide to aromatherapy." We have the items that are suggested for use.
