While the sun's UV rays provide us with necessary vitamin D, excessive exposure can be harmful to the skin, leading to premature aging and pigmentation. THANN's skincare presents a holistic approach to protect and repair your skin from these harmful effects.
How Prolonged UV Exposure Causes Skin Damage
Sunlight contains UVA and UVB rays, both of which can damage the skin. UVA rays, responsible for aging, penetrate deep into the skin and damage collagen and elastin - proteins that give the skin its firmness and elasticity. On the other hand, UVB rays, responsible for sunburn, directly damage the skin's outermost layers, leading to redness and inflammation.
Apart from visible changes like wrinkles and sunspots, UV exposure can also cause DNA damage in skin cells. Given these effects, it's crucial to protect the skin from excessive UV exposure and take steps to repair any damage already caused.
How THANN's Shiso Skincare Can Help
Shiso, the key ingredient in THANN's Shiso skincare range, boasts potent antioxidants such as rosmarinic acid and luteolin. These antioxidants protect and restore skin health in the following ways:
Fortify Skin Barrier
Shiso extract, particularly its rich concentration of linoleic acid, a crucial fatty acid, enhances skin's barrier function. The skin barrier is responsible for retaining moisture and keeping out harmful substances. Excess UV exposure can lead to transepidermal water loss - causing dry and damaged skin. Linoleic acid helps to fortify this barrier, maintaining the skin's hydration and resilience against the environmental stressors like UV radiation.
Rich in Antioxidants
Shiso is abundant in rosmarinic acid, which is a potent antioxidant. Antioxidants are crucial in combating the oxidative stress caused by UV rays. By neutralizing free radicals, which are unstable molecules that can damage the skin cells, Shiso extract helps prevent wrinkles and sun spots.
Prolonged exposure to UV rays can also cause inflammation and redness of the skin. Shiso extract exhibits strong anti-inflammatory properties that can help to resist such inflammation. Thus it helps to maintain skin integrity and prevent the breakdown of collagen. This, in turn, keeps the skin looking youthful and healthy.
With a potent blend of antioxidants and skin-nurturing benefits, THANN's Shiso skincare can help counter the damaging effects of UV rays. Including our skincare into your routine can result in healthier and more radiant skin. However, skin protection is an ongoing commitment. Always remember to apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen like Thann's Shiso SPF30 Sunscreen before heading out. Even if you'll be indoors most of the time. Let THANN to be your ally in your journey towards healthy, glowing skin - under the sun and beyond!
