External aggressors that stimulate skin aging

There are three factors that you must be aware of for their harsh effects on the skin:

  • UVA/UVB rays: When you are exposed to the sun without protection, you put yourself at risk in terms of accelerating skin aging. These rays stimulate the formation of free radicals that damage skin cells, which leads to the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines in addition to the loss of unified skin color. Also, medium-range radiation (UVB) can cause skin burns and is considered one of the most stimulating factors for cancerous tumors.
  • Infrared Radiation: These rays penetrate deeper layers into the skin compared to ultraviolet rays, damage cells and accelerate, the appearance of signs of aging by stimulating the production of free radicals. And if you are wondering about the source of these rays, you should know that a large part of the sun’s energy reaches the Earth in the form of infrared rays. So, it is necessary to protect yourselves from them!
  • Air pollution: The effect of the pollutants in the air can never be overlooked on the skin. They are like ultraviolet and infrared rays, a major catalyst for free radicals, which causes more damage to skin cells and faster appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.

The right combination to counter these external aggressors

After you got to know more with us about these factors that stimulate the aging of your skin, you cannot think to give up on them anymore! The specialist in dermatology and cosmetology, Dr. Yassine, will advise you on the best preventative method to face them: combine an antioxidant serum with a high-protection sunscreen.

What the antioxidant serum does is that it limits the activity of free radicals and prevents them from damaging cells. One of the most effective serums in this field is the one that is based on vitamin C at the appropriate concentration level.

The application of the serum should be combined with a sunscreen with a protection factor of 50 (SPF 50+) and above, which is designed to protect against long and medium-range ultraviolet rays (UVA / UVB) and it should be written on it “Broad Spectrum”.

When you visit Dr. Yassine at his Skin Expert Clinic, you can find exactly what you need, whether it is an antioxidant serum or sunscreen from the best medically trusted brands. By relying mainly on these two products, you provide a protective shield for the skin from all that it is exposed to on a daily basis!
