Enjoy The Summer and Sun with PEACE

Sun Exposure and its effects on our skin

Sunlight is essential for our life. It has different positive effects on our body and life. It enhances our mood, threat seasonal depression, releases stress, improves sleep and maintains healthy bone strength. On the other hand, exposing to the sun without protection has harmful effects on our skin.

Sun could cause premature aging for our skin. The sun’s rays have the immediate effect of drying out the skin. Overexposure to sun can lead to loss of moisture and elasticity, creating lines and wrinkles.

Another effect of sun on skin is hyperpigmentation. The appearance of dark spots is directly linked to exposure to ultraviolet rays. The spots are the result of the over production of melanin. These often stubborn spots, accumulate over time.

The other serious side effect of sun on skin is skin cancer. A connection between sun exposure and skin cancer has been clearly proven. The more a person has been exposed to the sun during lifetime, the higher the risk of developing skin cancer she/he has.

So by over exposing to sun, UVA rays penetrate deeply into the skin layers, damaging collagen and cells which leads to wrinkles, hyperpigmentation and loss of elasticity. UVB (burning) rays mostly effect on the outer layer of the skin. They cause sunburns and tanning that increase the risk of skin cancer and other disorders.

UVA penetrate deeper to the skin and play a Major role in photo aging & loss of collagen.

UVB is more superficial and is the main Cause of sunburn and tan.

Now the question is:

How we can protect ourselves against sun’s harmful effects while enjoying it and receive its benefits? Much of the damage to our skin caused by sun exposure, can be prevented., you can protect yourself with UV filtering sunglasses, long sleeves or a brimmed hat. If you are going to be outside for long periods, sit under a cover of a building, an umbrella or a tree that has dense shade underneath. Also having the right sun protection and applying it correctly is really important.
