UVA: The Trojan Horse of Premature Ageing of the Skin

UVA: The Trojan Horse of Premature Ageing of the Skin

Increasing evidence of the detrimental effects of ultraviolet A (UVA) impinging on the skin has emphasized the need for a new generation of skin care products that not only protect from UVB-induced sunburn, but rather provide effective protection throughout the UV range of sun radiation reaching the earth level.

The need is not restricted to products for sunbathers, whose primary concern is the conspicuous, acute effects of UVB and which do not take care of the hidden part of damage, the Trojan horse of premature ageing of the skin.

The need also applies to skin care products for daily use and exposure where UVA is a major factor whatever the season.

Aging solar exposure levels remain high throughout the year.

Presently the only solution for near perfect defense is to combine once daily use of topical antioxidants C, E and Ferulic Acid or another similar solution-stabilizing antioxidant with a "true" broad spectrum sunscreen such as Skinceuticals Daily Sun Defense SPF 20.

Anthocyanins, Lutein and Zeaxanthin are dietary constituents of the arsenal against premature skin, and general, aging.

Different sunscreens provide different kinds of sun protection and the periocular region requires different care.

Despite extensive education, most people still don't understand, choose to ignore or follow best practice anti-aging skin care recommendations only haphazardly.

This is disappointing, and suggests that the din of ineffective but aggressively marketed cosmetics generally overcomes the truths and concrete improvements dermatology represents while ensuring the perennial rise and fall of more or less identical misinformation.

Physician-endorsed skin care, where it is spurious, is a travesty of the medical profession, likely to degrade confidence and popularly expected standards of care.
