Fixing Sun Damage: What Are Your Options?

Sure, the sun feels great on your face, and many women view brown-tinted skin as a sign of beauty. Unfortunately, tanning only benefits your physical appearance temporarily. As the years pass, the beauty routine that used to make you feel young and healthy can leave your skin prematurely aged and wrinkled. It can also cause unattractive pigment changes or result in a mole becoming precancerous. While it’s too late to erase your old habits, sun damage can be reversed through a variety of treatments.


Nonprescription Medication

For skin with only minor sun damage, there are nonprescription options that could bring the youth and smoothness back to your complexion. Retinol, a form of vitamin A, can help soften your skin while also reducing the lines caused by too much sun exposure. Antioxidants such as vitamin C and E can also fight against UV damage by erasing skin discoloration. Treatments that contain all three vitamins will give you the best nonprescription approach to skin repair.


Prescription Treatments

Prescription treatments usually pack a bigger punch than over-the-counter options. Tretinoin and tazarotene are available only from a dermatologist. While these medications may use similar approaches as their nonprescription counterparts, with many of the same vitamins included, they often show better results in a quicker time frame.


Skin Repair Procedures

Even the fastest topical treatments can take months before a visible difference appears. For faster results, many of the latest skin repair procedures will tighten up your skin and reduce wrinkles quickly and effectively. Ranging from facial peels, which remove old damaged layers of the skin, to laser resurfacing and Botox, there is no reason why your skin can’t look years younger despite your past habits of baking in the sun.
