What Causes: Photo Damaged Skin
Skin that is photo damaged is caused by being overexposed to the sun’s harmful UV rays. This happens when a person spends too much time in the sun, without proper UV protection from suncream. When this happens, your DNA is changed at a cellular level. You may not think you’ve damaged your skin, but photo damaged skin can take many years to appear at a surface level as the initial damage occurs on the dermis – the skin’s deepest layer.
