The feel of the sun on your skin can undeniably make us feel good. In the short term, a healthy glow of a tan makes us look good too.
However, the cumulative effects of sun exposure are not healthy at all. Skin cancer is highly dangerous and a known risk of sun exposure.
In addition, the sun is generally regarded as the number one enemy of young-looking skin.
The harmful UVA and UVB rays can break down the skin’s internal collagen, leading to premature ageing. In addition, pigmentation problems such as age spots, freckles, hyperpigmentation and melasma are related to sun exposure.
Sun-weathered skin also often appears to lose its texture and radiance. It can seem dry, dehydrated or even leathery in appearance.
Sunburn is skin damage from the sun’s UV rays. Most sunburns result in redness, heat to the touch, and mild pain, affecting only the outer layer of skin (first degree burns). Sunburn usually appears within hours after sun exposure and may take several days to weeks to fade. However, even after the redness, soreness and peeling have healed, the damage to the skin can be long-lasting.
While prevention is better than cure, most of us have been over-exposed to the sun at some time in our lives.
