Leave your blotches and dark spots here. Environmentally Damaged Skin can come from exposure to too much sunlight, hot or cold winds, chemicals, pollution, or radiation. Free-radicals are formed when damage occurs. These free-radicals start to break down collagen and elastin in the skin, and can also start the formation of premalignant keratoses. If not stopped wrinkles, blotches and skin cancer can result.
Sunscreens and antioxidants can prevent problems if used in time. They can also, treat early damage and reverse some signs.
