Anti-Aging Benefits of Sunscreen

Eager as you may be to soak up the sun this season, it is important to remember that these rays can really do a number on your skin. As we’ve covered in past posts, sun exposure is the single greatest contributing factor when it comes to signs of aging like forehead lines and dark spots, so any woman who is already concerned about these creases has no excuse not to protect herself before stepping outdoors.

While common sense already dictates that using sunscreen can ward off these unwanted wrinkles by shielding your skin from harsh UV rays, a new study has only served to reiterate that fact. According to CNN, a team of researchers from England and Australia have produced quantitative proof that slathering on this protective cream really can enhance your appearance in the long term.

“We now have the scientific evidence to back the long-held assumption about the cosmetic value of sunscreen,” said study lead author Dr. Adele Green, adding that “young and mid-aged adults under 55” can especially benefit from daily application.

It always helps to know how to protect your skin from damage and accelerated aging, but what if your skin is already creased and blemished from too many years in the Tennessee sun?

That’s where Dr. Lett and his experienced Lebanon-based staff can help. The Lett Center offers cosmetic treatments including chemical peels, dermal fillers, Botox and fraxel lasers so you can reduce the appearance of wrinkles, restore your face’s natural volume and restore your youthful vitality.
