helps to block visible light which<br />

can contribute to pigmentation.<br />

It should be applied daily and<br />

reapplied every two hours, and<br />

used in conjunction with other sunprotective<br />

measures such as wearing<br />

a hat and seeking shade.<br />

With regards to reversing<br />

cumulative sun damage, there<br />

is nothing that will completely<br />

reverse sun damage and that’s why<br />

prevention is critical. The numberone<br />

ingredient I always recommend<br />

is sunscreen.<br />

Antioxidants such as resveratrol<br />

and Vitamin C are also great<br />

scavengers of the free radicals that<br />

damage DNA when skin is exposed<br />

to UV radiation.<br />

Retinol, a derivative of Vitamin<br />

A, also helps to repair damaged<br />

skin cells by encouraging cell<br />

turnover and increasing collagen<br />

production. It is the gold-standard<br />

anti-ageing ingredient which can<br />

help with correcting texture, tone<br />

and pigmentation and help with<br />

fine lines and wrinkles. Vitamin A is<br />

available in various forms, including<br />

over-the-counter retinol products<br />

to prescription-strength retinoids,<br />

which can be more effective but<br />

more irritating. It is best to start with<br />

a retinol which is ultra-stable but less<br />

irritating, starting with a couple of<br />

times a week, then bumping up the<br />

application if your skin isn’t irritated.<br />

Another way of addressing sundamaged<br />

skin is laser and lightbased<br />

therapies. Some of these<br />

technologies can target pigment<br />

and are great at fading sun spots.<br />

Others are great at targeting the<br />

redness and vascular changes that<br />

arise as a result of sun damage. We<br />

can also resurface the texture of the<br />

skin using certain types of lasers,<br />

which can help correct some of the<br />

signs of ageing and sun damage.<br />
