What Is Sun Damage?
The term “sun damage” describes premature aging of the skin due to overexposure to ultraviolet (UV) rays. Frequent sun exposure hurts your skin’s ability to maintain antioxidants, hyaluronic acid content and vitamins. When these components decline, we tend to develop uneven pigmentation, brown spots and other such issues. Though this kind of damage does occur naturally over time, sun exposure tends to speed up the process.
What Causes Sun Damage?
Sun damage occurs when one is overexposed to ultraviolet (UV) rays. There are two types of UV rays that cause damage to the skin: UVA and UVB. UVA are longer waves that give you a tan, but they also activate the skin in an unhealthy way. UVA rays are not responsible for sunburns. They penetrate the skin much deeper than UVB rays and trigger premature aging. UVB rays are shorter waves that can also accelerate early signs of aging. UVB rays are considered the most common cause of skin cancers.
