Too much sun exposure leads to sun damage. Sun gives off ultraviolet (UV) radiations that damages your skin and causes sunburn. These UV rays can damage your skin in two different forms, UVA rays (the ageing rays) and UVB rays (the burning rays). UVA rays deeply penetrates into the skin-damaging the fibres in your skin called elastin and collagen causing wrinkles, age spots, scaly patches and even possibility of skin cancer. While UVB rays mostly affect the outer layer of the skin causing sunburns and tanning.Terms you need to know
Sunscreen, the product to prevent sun’s UV rays from reaching the skin.
The broad spectrum sunscreen protects you from both UVA and UVB that may harm your skin.
Sun protection factor (SPF) is the UVB protection offered by product to the skin.
PA stands for protection grade of UVA rays. It tells amount of protection offered by product from UVA rays.
The “+” sign in sunscreen signifies the level of UV protection. The more “+” signs means higher level of UV protection.
Sunburn: A type of skin burn resulting from too much exposure to sunlight. Repeated exposure increases the risk of other conditions such as wrinkles, dark spots and skin cancer. Symptoms include red, painful, itchy skin that’s hot to the touch. Skin may also blister.
Photoaging: Premature aging of skin caused by prolonged sun exposure, specifically UVA and UVB rays.
Age Spots: Age spots are caused by overactive pigment cells. Ultraviolet (UV) light accelerates the production of melanin. On the areas of skin that have had prolonged sun exposure, age spots appear when melanin is produced in high concentrations.
DNA damage: Direct DNA damage can occur when DNA directly absorbs a UVB photon, or for numerous other reasons.
Skin cancer: Too much UV radiation from the sun or sunbeds can damage the genetic material (the DNA) in your skin cells. If enough DNA damage builds up over time, it can cause cells to start growing out of control, which can lead to skin cancer.
