Why You Should Care About Sun Damage

Everyone spends time outdoors in the sun. It is actually very important for your overall health for you to get direct sunlight every day, but too much exposure to the sun can damage your skin, sometimes irreparably. To keep your skin looking its best and protecting you like it should, you need to take steps to prevent and treat sun damage.

The sun causes photoaging.

If you spend too much time outdoors, your skin could age prematurely. This can cause changes to skin texture and tone, as well as the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The only way to stop or prevent photoaging is to take skin care and UV protection seriously, making it a regular part of your daily routine.

Frequent and extended sun exposure increases cancer risk.

There is no doubt that the UV rays of the sun can cause skin cancer. In fact, there are over 5 million cases of skin cancer diagnosed each year. If you take measures to protect your skin from the sun, as well as to repair the skin from sun exposure, you will decrease your risk of skin cancer.

The sun significantly dries out skin.

Exposure to the heat of the sun can cause your skin to tighten and dry out. If you don’t keep your skin hydrated, it won’t be able to do its job of protecting your body from intruders like viruses and bacteria. Your skin plays an important role in supporting your immune system; and if it is dry, it cannot perform this function effectively. Dry skin can also look terrible, itch uncontrollably, and flake.
