Sunlight brings many benefits to our health as it helps to manufacture vitamin D and improve our sense of well-being. However ultraviolet rays in sunlight cause damaging effects to the skin. It also triggers the production of melanin, the pigment responsible for freckles, melasma, age spots and uneven skin tone. Long-term exposure to the sun will decrease skin elasticity, leading to the formation of fine lines, wrinkles, and premature loose skin.
Sun protection will help to reduce the risk of sun damage, however for pre-existing sun damage, The Lime Tree Clinic has effective treatments and products to reverse this and restore your skin’s health.
