Photoaging is one of the most prominent factors that influences the state of our skin. Although the sun is the source of life on earth, providing flora and fauna with heat and light essential for growth and proliferation, it also contributes vast amounts of UV radiation to our environment. This radiation comes in two forms: UVA and UVB rays. In layman’s terms UVA rays are the major contributors to the signs of aging; these rays only superficially penetrate skin and are responsible for indirect DNA damage. UVB rays are the major contributors to bad skin cell changes that lead to skin cancer; these rays penetrate deeper into the dermis and cause damage directly to DNA. When DNA is damaged it causes cells to lose the ability to replicate, repair and follow through with planned cell death. Ultimately this damage causes a deterioration of tissues and organs, or tumor growth. The good news is that by integrating antioxidants into your diet and skin care regimen you can fight some of the damaging effects of the sun. Essential ingredients like Bisabolol, Yucca Glauca Root and Phyllanthus Emblica Fruit are proven antioxidants that help repair skin cell function, while glycosaminoglycans bind water and phospholipids help strengthen the skin barrier
