Skin care protection deemed essential after facial cosmetic surgery

Anti-ageing skincare and other protection is essential for those who have had cosmetic surgery treatments. This is according to television presenter Nicky Hambleton-Jones, who is best known for fronting Channel 4’s 10 Years Younger. In a recent interview, Hambleton-Jones said: “By wearing a good pair of sunglasses, you will protect your eyes from these rays and also stop squinting, which can contribute to developing crow's feet.”She insisted that sunglasses should be worn on both sunny and overcast days as harmful UV rays can be present on both – rays that are known to cause damage to skin and eyes. She also went on to add that a good anti-ageing moisturiser or eye cream was essential to keep the skin looking young.Blepharoplasty patients – those who have had cosmetic surgery to remove loose skin and excess fat from around the eyes – are advised to wear a moisturiser containing a high SPF (sun protection factor) as the area around the eyes can be up to 40 times thinner than that on the rest of the face.
