There’s no running away from ageing—we all start spotting signs of ageing once we hit 25. While we might do it all to prevent further damage, how many of us know that the sun plays a pivotal role in ageing skin? While you might argue that the sun gives us our dose of Vitamin D, truth be told, too much exposure to harmful UV rays can lead to ageing and take the form of pigmentation, fine lines, wrinkles as well as dark spots. Want to know how these problems take a turn towards the worse during the summer? Read on to find out...
 

Pigmentation

Pigmentation

Pigmentation or discoloration of the skin is caused due to constant sun exposure. The sun triggers the production of melanin in the skin. The pigment called melanin in your skin acts as a barrier to protect your skin from the ultraviolet rays. This is why your skin might suffer from patches. To avoid this skin problem, application of sunscreen is vital. Make sure you don’t step out without the Lakmé Sun Expert UV Lotion SPF 50 PA+++. This shields your skin against 97% UVB rays that can cause sunburns while the PA+++ saves your skin from UVA rays that can cause premature ageing.

 

Crow’s feet

Crow’s feet

Crow’s feet are a type of photoageing that is caused due to excessive sun exposure. Crow’s feet are tiny wrinkles and fine lines that are formed around the eyes. To tackle the formation of crow’s feet you can use the POND'S Age Miracle Firm & Lift Eye Contour Lifter. You can revive your fragile skin around the eyes with the cooling application head with this anti-ageing product. This will not only firm up your under eye area but also protect your skin from the harmful rays of the sun.

 

Dark spots

Dark spots

Commonly known as sun spots, dark spots are a problem caused due to the UVA and UVB rays of the sun. Excessive sun exposure can multiply and darken these spots in no time. These spots can make you look older than your actual age. Hence, regular usage of SPF is crucial for your skin care routine. Make sure you keep reapplying sunscreen every few hours since the effect of sunscreen wears off after an hour.

 

Wrinkles

Wrinkles

UV rays cause the production of harmful free radicals, which lead to wrinkles. Moreover, as we age the collagen levels in our skin deplete. However, the sun accelerates this process and only weakens the elasticity of your skin leading to wrinkles and fine lines. To help with ageing skin issue, you should use the POND'S Age Miracle Cell ReGEN SPF 15 PA Day Cream and POND'S Age Miracle Cell ReGEN Deep Action Night Cream. These anti-ageing creams contain advanced CLA4 and Retinol boosters that help hasten the cell renewal process, stimulating your skin from within. By incorporating these two anti-ageing creams in your skincare regime, you will slowly see your skin changing for the better with time.
