Sun block ’the most effective anti-aging product available’
Using sun protection is one of the best things women can do to delay the aging process, according to cosmetic surgeon Charles Nduka.
He said sunblock is more effective than any of the expensive anti-aging creams women can buy today.
"It is true that exposure to ultraviolet light, particularly UVA, is the major cause of wrinkles, sun spots and skin pigmentation issues," he explained.
"Use of sunblock from an early age, particularly for people with fair skin and fair hair, is important."
Mr Nduka said the ease with which people can travel to hotter countries has led to an increase in sun damage to women's skin.
"There has been an increase in foreign travel because of the accessibility of cheap flights to the continent," he stated.
"Therefore people are exposed to the sun much more than they used to be and that is having a very negative impact.
"We are now seeing women probably in their early 20s with evidence of wrinkles and sun damage, which really shouldn't be the case."
Referring to concerns that using sunblock could counteract the positive effects of vitamin D from sunshine, Mr Nduka insisted that people only need a small amount of the vitamin maintain healthy bones.
He also stressed the importance of moisturising the skin, noting that people with very dry skin tend to age faster than those with a plumper, oilier complexion.
In addition to using sunblock and a natural, deep facial moisturiser, women can boost their protection against harmful UV rays by taking daily Total Sun Complex tablets.
The nutritional supplements contain vitamin C and E, as well as beta carotene and other antioxidant phytonutrients which are known to increase the power of an external sunscreen by 25 per cent.

- The amazing Ashwagandha benefits for womenHi, great comprehensive article thanks. Does it stay in your system for a long time if you take it over a long period? Given what you're advising on not taking it during pregnancy, I was wondering if this should be taken while trying to conceive or if it should be avoided? Thank you.
- The Rosehip Oil Diaries- Entry 1Hi Ayesha. Oils start going off when they come to contact with oxygen. If your bottle was sealed properly, your Almond oil should be absolutely fine, also throughout next year. I hope this helps. :)
- Carrot Oil for Face Dear Gweneth, yes, don't worry --all normal. If the colour is too strong, I recommend you to do a gentle scrub in order to remove excess dead skin and a bit of tint. For next time, try to use a smaller quantity of carrot oil -- I use 1 drop Carrot oil per 4 drops Rosehip oil. I hope this helps. :)
