The warm rays of the sun, on a cold winter day – sounds so relaxing, doesn’t it? But as great as it might feel at the time, you do need to remember that the sun is not always your best friend and there can be some truly harmful effects of sun exposure. Did you know that you can get a sunburn in less than 15 minutes, and not know about it for almost six hours? If the sunburn is really severe, you could end up with second degree burns!
Long term exposure to the ultraviolet radiation can create a range of problems for your skin – starting with pigmentation or age spots to more severe problems like cancer. Here’s a slightly scary fact – if you have had more than five sunburns during your youth, the risk of you getting melanoma or skin cancer goes up by 80%!
You would think that on a day when the sun is hidden behind the clouds, you are safe – you might not bother much with sun protection. However, the ultraviolet rays of the sun can still continue to affect you and if you have not given your skin the protection it needs, you could still be at risk that come with the long-term effects of sun exposure.
What most people do not realise is that sunlight and the radiation that it brings with it, can reflect off of a range of surfaces too – anything from water, the cement sidewalk, the sand or even the snow can become a surface for the radiation and sunlight to bounce off of!
But you really want to work on your tan and now that you know that direct sunlight might be slightly off the list, what do you do? Well, there are always tanning beds and sunlamps, right!
Those have the same UV radiation, which means that you could face the same problems.
The answer to protecting your skin from the side effects of sun exposure is actually quite simple – all you need to do is invest in a really good sunscreen. One that will protect your skin, leave no white cast and leave your skin feel healthy and light, rather than bogging it down with that icky-sticky feeling.
