Can Skin Lightening Products Erase Sun Damage?

Sun damage plays a role in how the skin ages.  If you expose the skin to a lot of direct sunlight without sun protection ie. without sunscreen or using an umbrella or sunhat, sun damage is inevitable.  Unfortunately, not everyone knows about how the sun ages and can damage the skin so, they may seek alternatives later on in life.

Best Sun Damage Removal Products

The best skin care products combine quality anti-aging ingredients with skin lightening ingredients to make the ultimate in sun damage removal technology.  Getting the best results possible however, does require some effort on your part in the way of consistent application of skin lightening skin care products and protecting your skin from the sun's harsh rays.

How to Remove Sun Damage from the Face and Body

Exfoliating is important when removing sun damage.  For the face, using a facial scrub with natural ingredients once a week is recommended.  For the body using an exfoliating cloth and natural skin brightening bar is recommended at least once every other day.  Exfoliating is an important step to ensure cell turnover which involves removing dead skin cells from the surface of the skin so that you can get both faster and better results from your skin care products.

Cleanse the skin twice daily with a gentle facial cleanser that contains aha's and begins the process of sun damage removal.  This will make sure that the skin is clean and prepped, and ready for the next step which is application of the facial cream.

For the face, apply a skin lightening facial cream containing natural ingredients.  Make sure to apply this cream on clean skin and to apply it twice daily in the morning and at night.  Use a dime sized amount and rub into the skin until all traces of the cream are thoroughly absorbed.  For the body, apply a skin lightening body lotion to the sun damaged areas, also twice daily after cleansing.

Protecting your skin from the sun is of course another very important step in your sun damage removal journey.  This is important because while trying to remove hyperpigmentation or sun damage, avoiding tanning and more damage to the skin is essential.  For the face, applying sunscreen daily is the best form of sun protection, but it is important to note that even if you apply sunscreen, standing in direct sunlight for long periods of time.  If you'll be out and about in the sun, especially while trying to correct and remove sun damage, use a sun hat, protective clothing, or a parasol to ensure that you don't tan and negate any progress you may have made towards being rid of sun damage once and for all.
