It has been several weeks into summer and it has been getting hotter ever since. The danger of too much sun is normally sunburn. When you see a sunburned skin under a strong microscope you would see that the cells and blood vessels have been damaged. If the sun damage is continued, the skin will start to look dry, wrinkle and, discolored. Although the skin appears to be thicker, it actually has been weakened and, as a result, it will bruise more easily.
However, the sun’s most serious threat is that it is the major cause of skin cancer, which is now the most common of all cancers. Doctors believe that most skin cancers can be avoided by preventing sun damage.
TIPS FOR YOUR SUMMER SKIN
Always wear sunscreen! it is the best way to be protected while you do your outdoor activities. Make it a habit to wear your sunscreen everyday even during winter because UV is basically anywhere the sun is.
Avoid sun in the middle of the day, from about 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. The ultraviolet rays, which cause sunburn, are strongest during this time.
Wearing UV protection clothing also helps, especially for long periods in the middle of the day. Long sleeves and slacks, as well as a wide-brimmed hat, help protect your body against the sun’s harmful effects. The only annoying thing is that you’ll have to cover your whole body while sweating.
