We have always talked about the effects of UV rays on skin aging and pigmentation. You may be applying sunblock religiously but it is really not enough to prevent photoaging, especially when Singapore lies just inches away from the equator.
Darkness and spots are some of the visible effects that are caused by UV damage, but do you know that there are also hidden damages that lurk beneath the skin surface? Hidden spots can take years before they appear on our skin surface. The hidden damages appear as 'clouds' within the skin, blocking the skin's natural aura and radiance.
Just when we thought that women only lose skin radiance from their mid-thirties onwards, a long term SK-II study discovered that women lose radiance most dramatically in their 20s. Hidden spots and clouds cause skin appear darker and less radiant.
