Sun Safety For Your Skin

Sun is actually good for you because some some exposure helps to produce vitamin D which helps calcium absorption for stronger and healthier bones. However, the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) rays can cause damage to the eyes, skin, and even the immune system. The skin can be damaged by a sunburn and excessive UV light exposure that will not only prematurely age skin but also can lead to skin cancer. It is important to make sure that you know proper sun safety.

The Impact of Skin Tanning

The tanning of the skin is a response to UV light. When the UV rays reach the skin, the skin makes melanin. Melanin is the pigment, or color, that causes tanning to take place. It is important to understand that tanning does not prevent skin cancer. The melanin is the first defense that the skin has against the sun because it absorbs the dangerous UV rays. A sunburn develops when the amount of UV damage exceeds the protection that the skin’s melanin can provide. Proper sun safety can help to get enough sun to remain healthy.

Protecting the Skin Against The Sun’s Harmful Rays

The best way to protect the skin against the sun’s harmful rays is by limiting the exposure and by applying sunscreen and wearing protective eyewear. Make sure to choose a sunscreen that has a minimum of 15 SPF and apply it regularly to the skin. All skin types need protection from the UV rays. Even darker skin tones can have painful sunburns and get skin cancer from the sun’s rays.
