What is solar elastosis and why does it occur on the skin?

Finally the good weather begins! I admit it... I am a lover of the sun, of the heat and of going to spend the day at the beach. However, what can happen to my skin if I expose it to UV rays without sun protection?

What is the connective tissue of the dermis?

The skin is made up of different layers and, although the most common thing is that I always talk about the epidermis (the outermost layer), today we are going to focus on the dermis (the deepest layer) and its connective tissue .

The connective tissue of the dermis is made up of collagen and elastin fibers and is responsible for supporting and giving firmness and support to the skin , as well as joining and supporting other tissues (such as bone, blood or lymphatic).

But what happens if the connective tissue of the skin is broken ?

That is what happens when a person suffers from elastosis or flaccidity . As we have already mentioned, our skin loses collagen and elastin over time . This fact causes the visible signs of aging to appear on our face and makes our epidermis feel more rigid and rough .

What is solar elastosis?

However, our dermis can also undergo structural changes as a result of factors other than time, such as ultraviolet rays . In this case, if the connective tissue of our skin is broken due to exposure to UV rays , we would be talking about solar elastosis .

So, when we suffer from solar elastosis, our skin loses all its elasticity because the rays reduce the amount of fibroblasts (cells that help form connective tissue), so much less collagen is produced .

Due to this, symptoms such as deep wrinkles , spots , roughness or a more yellowish tone appear in our epidermis . These types of signs are called premature aging of the skin .

How to treat solar elastosis?

It is necessary to take into account how solar elastosis is cured … In truth, the only 100% definitive solution is prevention . It is important to apply high sun protection every day, especially when we are going to be progressively exposed to the sun . In addition, the consumption of beta-carotene and antioxidants also come in handy when it comes to avoiding solar elastosis .

Are solar elastosis and skin cancer related?

On the other hand, it should be noted that being a skin problem caused by ultraviolet rays , solar elastosis increases the risk of skin cancer , since both are caused by the same reason.


Therefore, as we have said, take into account protecting your skin from the sun and keeping it hydrated with a Revitalizing Moisturizer adequate to provide you with the collagen and elastin you need.
