Exposure to the sun’s UV radiation can not only cause signs of aging to appear on your face and body, it can also increase the risk of possible skin cancers. Sun damage can take a serious toll on the quality of one’s skin, causing it to lose its volume and elasticity, developing wrinkles and generally losing its lustrous, youthful glow.
How Does Sunlight Damage My Skin?
Everyone is familiar with the coveted “healthy tan,” but many of us might not realize that over time, spending all those hours basking in the sun’s UV rays can start to take a cumulative toll on the quality of your skin. While a bit of sunlight can feel good, too much of it can start to negatively impact the way your skin actually reproduces on a cellular level, dehydrating it and causing it to take on a wrinkly and leathery appearance.
- When your skin is exposed to the sun, it protects itself by generating melanin, which darkens your skin.
- Excess sun exposure can allow dangerous UV reays to reach deeper layers of the skin, causing cells to be damaged, die off, or become cancerous.
- Melanin can cause skin cells to clumb and form freckles or moles.
- Sun exposure can also cause your skin to gae faster than normal, taking on a wrinkled or leathery appearance.
