Heat Wave

We all know that UV rays from the sun and environmental pollution impact our skin health. But did you know that heat can too?

Heat’s Effect on Skin

A study in 2016 reported that heat (temperatures over 99 degrees Fahrenheit) destroy collagen and elastin fibers and induce dark spots and broken capillaries.

“The dark spots result as the body is trying to protect itself from environmental insults,” explains Dr. Carl Thornfeldt, a clinical dermatologist and founder of Epionce skin care. He recommends patients with dark spots or concerns about signs of ageing avoid extended exposure to temperatures above 99 degrees – including activities that are heat-focused, like hot yoga.

The Epionce Solution

Incorporate products from Epionce that help brighten the visible appearance of dark spots. This includes using the MelanoLyte Skin Brightening System to help diminish the visible appearance of dark spots on the face and body. Prevent sun spots and premature signs of ageing on your skin caused by UV exposure with Ultra Shield Lotion SPF50. This Epionce sunscreen is an effective broad-spectrum sunscreen.
