You have definitely heard at some point in your life that you need to be protecting your skin from the sun. But do you really know why you need to do this? Protecting your skin from the sun is partly about prevention of skin cancer, but there are some other excellent reasons that you should protect your skin from the sun whenever possible.
Sunspots are brown spots that come up on the skin when it is exposed to too much sunlight too frequently. You might get sunspots on your arms, hands, or shoulders if you spend a lot of time outdoors. Sunspots do not go away once they appear, and they will continue to get darker the more you expose the area to the sun. Sunspots are frequently harmless, but they can greatly affect your appearance and self-confidence.
Damaging Skin Cells
Your skin is what protects your body from the elements, and it is important that you keep it healthy and functioning the way it should. When you expose your skin to the sun frequently without using adequate sun protection, you will risk damaging skin cells that could otherwise be protecting you from harm. Even a mild sunburn destroys the uppermost layers of skin cells.
Signs of Aging
The signs of aging that many people complain of, including fine lines and wrinkles, dry skin, and a loss of elasticity, are directly related to how much sun exposure your skin gets. When you limit your sun exposure and protect your skin when you are in the sun, it will help minimize how quickly or how deep fine lines and wrinkles form.
