There’s no doubt you’ve heard the warnings about sun exposure and sun damage. The trouble is, we don’t always follow the “rules.” Sun damage can cause hyperpigmentation or brown “age spots”. It thins the skin and lengthens collagen and elastin fibers which result in folds, wrinkles and fine lines. The sun can also cause angiomas or an ongoing “flushed” look, due to weakened blood vessels. The face, hands, chest and neck are especially susceptible to showing sun damage earlier than other areas of the body.
