Harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays from the sun  can also damage your skins DNA  which in turn affects the production of collagen and elastin fibers which are necessary to maintain a youthful look.

As we grow older, collagen production slows down and continuous exposure to UV rays will slowly but surely  damages the skin and about 90% of all abnormal skin conditions such as pigmentation, wrinkles and more may be caused by this exposure.

Well let's take a look at the simple and more elaborate ways of treating this naturally unavoidable situation. 

It is not impossible to achieve pillow-soft, airbrushed skin again but it requires more than just home remedies and skincare creams to keep your skin smooth and glowing.


“If there is only one skincare product you can afford, it has to be a good broad spectrum sunscreen,” says Dr. Siew Tuck Wah, Medical Director of Radium Medical Aesthetics.“Regular application of a good broad spectrum sunscreen will slow down the aging process significantly.”
