Applying lotion: Those who protect their skin from the sun’s rays consistently, and with the right sun protection factor, will avoid the appearance of age spots – or at least delay them. Sun creams are a must, especially in sunny months. This applies in particular to the parts of the skin that are not protected by clothing: such as the face, décolleté, forearms and hands.
Tip: Avoid midday in summer, when the sun shines most intensely. Then find a spot in the shade. Sun hats and parasols are also recommended as additional protection against UV radiation.
Avoid solarium: Artificial UV radiation in the solarium also promotes the formation of age spots and skin aging in general. By the way: Even a single visit to the sunbed increases the risk of skin cancer.
Rely on antioxidants: UV radiation creates free radicals. These in turn lead to oxidative stress, which ages the skin and causes age spots to form. The counter-program: antioxidants. In skin creams, they help to neutralise free radicals in the form of vitamin C or Q10 .
Tip: You can also support the regenerative properties of your skin with a healthy diet. In particular, foods rich in antioxidants ensure healthy and glowing skin. Therefore, eat too much fruit, vegetables and legumes.
