How do I keep my skin looking young?

How do I keep my skin looking young?

Over 90% of skin ageing is due to the cumulative exposure to the sun. It has been known for many years that routine exposure to UV radiation is responsible for skin ageing.

If anyone was in doubt that exposing your skin to the sun is the primary reason for skin ageing, then a study undertaken in Australia by Monash University in 2017 should put the matter to rest.

Greg Goodman, a leading Australian dermatologist and adjunct professor at Monash University conducted the study along with his colleagues in the US and Singapore. 1,472 women took part in the academic research aged between 18-75 years old. The women who participated in the survey were asked to compare their facial features. Australians reported higher rates of change and significantly more facial lines than women from other countries.

Professor Goodman noted “Australian women reported more severe signs of facial ageing... up to 20 years earlier than those in the USA".

The difference was attributed to cumulative UV exposure, Goodman added, “high UV levels put Australians at particular risk of photo-ageing, especially when combined with Australians traditionally outdoor, sun-seeking lifestyle and predominantly fair-skinned population”

Dermatologists recommend UPF 50+ sun protective clothing, broad brim sun hats as the best way to prevent sunburn, skin ageing and skin cancer.

As a teenager growing up in England my favourite summer pastime was sunbathing with friends. I have been extremely lucky to have not developed skin cancers (to date) and I am willing to start to take better care.
