How to protect your skin from sun damage this summer

With summer in full swing, most of us are soaking up the warm weather in a move to achieve the ultimate sun-kissed glow. However, according to our therapists at endota spa, Surfers Paradise, the sun can seriously damage the collagen in our skin.


This can result in the loss of skin firmness, as well as wrinkles and pigmentation – which, unfortunately, are the top telltale signs of premature aging.

Not only will sun damage affect your beauty, but it also has the potential to impact your health and drastically so, with melanoma (a dangerous type of skin cancer caused predominately by sun exposure), now one of the most common forms of cancers in Australia.

So, whatever your reasoning – whether you want to protect your health or prevent signs of aging – endota spa Chevron Renaissance shares their healthy steps to take care of your skin during these extra hot summer days.

Lather up

Protect your skin daily with a broad-spectrum sunscreen such as the New Age Daily Defence Cream SPF 50 to hydrate your skin and protect you from sun damage.

Stay covered

In addition to wearing sunscreen, ensure you wear a hat to cover your face from harsh sunlight to avoid damaging your beautiful complexion. With such an extensive range of on-trend wide brimmed summer hats, you are spoilt for choice. So, being sun smart doesn’t mean you can’t be stylish at the same time.

Fight pigmentation

Did you know pigmentation in the form of discolouration or sunspots can add years to your age when it comes to your looks? The therapists at endota spa recommend applying brightening and vitamin-rich serums to protect and reverse pigmentation, such as Powerful C Complexion Booster and Multivitamin Treatment Oil from endota spa’s New Age range.
