How to reverse summer sun damage

Can you reverse the signs of sun damage?

"Yes! If you know how."  says Claire Williams, WOW facial founder & CEO

What does sun damage look like?

Claire continues, “It’s safe to say we’ve had a rather hot summer, and whilst it’s been amazing, sun exposure wreaks havoc with our skin! From sunburn to sunspots, pigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles, redness or even a rough uneven skin texture, overexposure to the sun is damaging and in the worst case scenario, plays out as skin cancer.” 
"An estimated 90 percent of skin ageing is caused by the sun, so it's no surprise that sun damage is a top concern when it comes to our skincare."

So, now that Autumn is on the horizon, it’s time to restore and replenish your skin back to health and reduce any visible signs of sun damage, ready to face the colder temperatures. Whilst not all ageing is reversible, there are many ways to reduce signs of overexposure from the sun with chemical peels, microneedling and mesotherapy, and an intelligent SPF.

WOW facial Bright Peel

The WOW facial Bright Peel combines powerful acids such as Lactic, Mandelic, Citric, Glycolic, Pyruvic, and Kojic all with excellent brightening properties to improve uneven skin tone, hyperpigmentation, and dullness creating a perfectly flawless complexion. 
Stage two of our revolutionary six-stage WOW facial is a chemical peel; there are an array of options for your skincare specialist to choose from, so depending on the damage from the sun and other concerns, the Bright Peel may be used. Claire adds, “this incredible peel diminishes visible skin imperfections caused by overexposure to the sun, softens, smooths and, moisturises the skin leaving you with a radiant complexion with instantly visible results.” 

Protect Your Skin with SPF 50

Prevention and cure go hand in hand, and intelligent ingredients can play a huge part in assisting healthy skin. Intradermology Synergy 6 NX-Gen SPF 50 expertly blends a powerhouse of antioxidant and growth factors including peptides to stimulate collagen and elastin, and keep your skin looking supple and youthful.
Claire says, “protect your skin from harmful UVA and UVB rays which can still penetrate and damage your skin year-round, even on the most cloudiest of days! An SPF 50 should be part of your daily skincare routine and an essential item in your beauty bag all year, despite the weather.”

“Available in both 50ml and 100ml bottles, our 6 filter blend Intradermology Synergy 6 SPF 50 improves skin cell health and the skin barrier function, and increases hydration, all leading to a reversal in the appearance of ageing and preventing future skin damage too”, Claire concludes.
