Sun Damage and Sun Protection

0
519

We all love tanning, but with that pretty tan color comes damage. Even without intentionally tanning, exposure to the sun causes damage to your skin. This damage is irreversible, although some lasers and creams can reduce the appearance of wrinkles, the UVA and UVB rays penetrate deep into the skin causing premature aging, dark spots, and leathery skin.

The thing is, the damage creeps up on you gradually accumulating over time, so you don’t really notice the damage till later.

Also, that is not to forget that sun overexposure is one of the leading causes for skin cancer.

Protecting your skin from the damaging UV rays doesn’t end when the summer ends, the rays are still present all year long, so it’s important to use that sunscreen daily.

Not only does it protect your skin, but it also gives your skin the time to heal itself and to repair some of the damage that already happened. So it is highly recommended that you use SPF of 15 or above every day, regardless how old you are. The younger you are, the better!
