UV-irradiation induces structural and cellular changes in all the compartments of skin tissue. The incidence of sunlight-induced skin-aging and skin cancer has been increasing in many parts of the world. The UV-B rays from sunlight are absorbed epidermally and are responsible for causing erythema and excess skin pigmentation. UV-A rays can penetrate deeper into the skin with their much lower energy levels, causing long term effects, such as accelerated skin aging.
The damage caused by UV exposure is not only visible on your face, but lurks under the skin’s surface, making your complexion appear dull, sallow, uneven and aged. Much of the appearance of environmental aging is visibly reversible.
