Been expose to the sun has its own advantage and disadvantage to the skin depending on the intensity of the sun. Mild sun intensity on the skin triggers the production of vitamin D, which in turn increases the calcium level in the body and thereby helps in strengthen the body skeleton or bones. Constant exposure to high sun may over time cause sun damage on the skin. Recently, I wrote an article on sun damage and products that can help you fight sun damaged skin. In this post, I explain some natural ways to repair and fix any sun damaged skin using natural readily available products.
The sun damages seen on skin are as a result of the sun’s effect on certain proteins of the skin. That is the sun denatures these proteins. Collagen, Elastin, Keratin and some other proteins are essential in keeping skin smooth and flexible. For example, collagen has evolved to provide strength. Loss of any of this proteins result to the appearance of wrinkles, skin discoloration, skin dryness, and it gives skin a rough, leathery texture. There are several natural ingredients which are readily available in your surrounding that will help in the repair of sun damaged skin, below are four natural ingredients:
Premium omega 3 fish oils work to repair the skin best when they have added antioxidants like astaxanthin and lycopene.

Phytessence wakame comes from a type of exotic kelp. Phytessence wakame can be eaten or mixed as an ingredient in skin care products. Phytessence wakame works by fighting off a harmful enzyme called hyaluronidase.
Hyaluronidase attacks the hyaluronic acid in the skin. Hyaluronic acid keeps collagen and elastin glued together so that skin stays smooth and supple. Phytessence wakame plays an important role in skin repair and also keeps dark under eye circles away.
