We all know that the sun is one of the best sources for vitamin D. This has a direct impact on our health and happiness. But too much sun exposure can actually damage your beautiful skin. Overexposure can also have serious health implications. And after a long, dark winter, we can overdo it very easily as we look to soak up all those beautiful rays.

The summer is almost here. Toronto’s outdoor offerings mean more time under the sun. From lounging poolside with a bottle of champagne and drinks with friends on your favourite patio to afternoon shopping excursions along Bloor Street, we know you’ll be in the sun a lot this summer.

We want you to look your best. You should be ready to flaunt your beautiful skin. Because who doesn’t want to turn a few heads along Yorkville Avenue?

The sun shouldn’t be feared or avoided. But sun damage is a reality. We just need to be a bit more aware of its impacts so we can keep our skin looking youthful and radiant.

How Does the Sun Damage Skin?

When it comes to aging, the sun can actually accelerate the process. It’s when you spend a prolonged period of time in the sun unprotected that the real damage takes place.

Skin damage and premature aging is caused by the ultraviolet and radiation in the form of UVA and UVB rays that penetrate your skin. This releases what are known as free radicals. These unstable molecules search to bond with electrons. Unfortunately, the only way this happens is that they steal from other molecules. This has a damaging effect on healthy skin cells and tissues.

Free radicals also attack your precious collagen and elastin. As these are broken down, the aging process becomes more noticeable. “Free radicals can also destroy lipids, which are critical to your skin’s health as they hold in moisture and act as a protective barrier,” said Dr. Ali Adibfar, one of Toronto’s best plastic surgeons and the medical director at Elements Wellness and Medispa – Toronto’s premier medical spa located in the heart of Yorkville.

Sun Damage: The Results

The results of unprotected overexposure to the sun aren’t pretty. It can accelerate the aging process and leave you with wrinkles, sunspots, sagging skin and blotches.

Sun damage can also have a significant impact on the confidence you have in your physical appearance and beauty. But there’s an answer.
