The UV rays from the sun damage the skin if they are not protected


There are people who love the summers but then there are people who do not prefer to go out in the sun. Those who do, often become the victims of the sun with skin problems.

2. Proper diet – One must have a diet that is rich in anti-oxidants that reverse the sun damage and fight against free radicals that cause damage to the skin cells. Some of the fruits like berries, citrus fruits and vegetables protect the skin against the sun and the induced allergies and damages.

3. Skin care regime – Apart from regular moisturizing, cleansing and toning, one must also regularly exfoliate the skin. The exfoliants help to remove the dead skin, dry dead skin cells and toxins that are deposited. It allows the new skin to surface. You can also use a night cream that speed ups the repairing of the damaged skin.
