Fight Anti Aging Wearing UPF Clothing
For most of us skin aging will become a fast roller coaster ride, because most of us do not know how to slow down the aging process. Everyone would like to stop the skin aging process, but that is impossible. But slowing down the aging is possible, by adapting a few guidelines and smart sun awareness tips.
Sun UV Radiation (UVR) Cause Skin Aging
The number one reason for skin aging and all the skin disorders is the exposure to sun Ultraviolet Radiation – UVR. This radiation cause most of the skin cancer issues and most of the skin aging side effects we all want to prevent. The Examiner has quoted some facts from the AAD:
The American Academy of Dermatology has these frightening stats on their web page:
* Current estimates are that 1 in 5 Americans will develop skin cancer in their lifetime.
* By 2015, it is estimated that 1 in 50 Americans will develop melanoma in their lifetime. Melanoma is the most serious form of skin cancer.
But most of us do not worry from skin cancer, we worry about our looks. The same sun awareness tips will prevent aging signs and help prevent skin cancer of many kinds.
Preventing Skin Aging By Sun Awareness Tips
The main signs of skin aging can be noticed during the age of 30-40. Many women will notice that their skin is not as it used to be, the shine, smoothness and elastics is decreasing. The skin becomes thiner, and suddenly other aging signs appear.
Women in their 35-45 will begin to notice wrinkles, skin pigments, age spots and sagging skin. These are all symptoms of sun UVR damage which begins to take effect. The good news is that most of the UVR can be reduced to minimum thus preventing most of these signs from expending over larger skin areas or getting worst.
Anti Aging Sun Protection Golden Tip
Women who do care for their skin apply SPF creams daily. But it is can deal with less than 10% of the daily radiation the skin absorbs. SPF in creams or make up usually used for the face and neck, or hands and arms. But 90% of the body is not protected! This means that the skin is getting large doses of UVR daily because UVA (long UV rays) penetrates most of the clothes and fabrics we wear.
Only wearing UPF labeled clothing can block 99% of the incoming UVR on a daily basis. UPF clothing are clothes and fabrics which have been tested to check their ability to block UVR (Ultra Violet Radiation). UPF clothes which carry the ratings 40-50, can block 98%-99% of the UVR.
Regular clothing do not block UVA, so the skin gets lots of radiation during daylight hours.
Wearing UPF tagged clothing can reduce the UV radiation your skin is exposed to, every day. Unlike SPF creams which need to be renewed every hour, wearing a UPF jacket (like this Coolibar UPF 50+ Women’s Water Jacket) or a UPF shirt and pants can block away most of the radiation throughout the day even when standing in direct sun light.
Wearing a UPF hat, can lower and reduce the UV rays your facial skin gets, and cover the delicate skin of your neck.
