The Three Dimensions of the Sun Debate
Summer is the happiest time of year. The beaches are packed, we have a chance to work on our tans, and we have an excuse to lie about on the sand for hours while the sun is out. However, we are only starting to understand the effects of UV exposure and although there are some positives we should be much more guarded against our exposure to the sun. Let's break it down:
One of the greatest elements the sun passes to the human body is frequently left unspoken. That is, short UVB rays are a chief deliverer of Vitamin D. So why is Vitamin D needed? Vitamin D protects and increases the survival rates against a wealth of internal cancers such as colon cancer, lung cancer, breast cancer and prostate cancer, as well as many other diseases.
To balance the leader, it would be bias not to mention that exposure to ultraviolet light, UVA or UVB, from sunlight accounts for 90% of the symptoms of premature skin aging, along with a plethora of other skin changes.
UV radiation is the chief instigators of:
Collagen breakdown - causing the formation solar scars and increasing the appearance of wrinkles
Free radicals - which destroy cell function and alter genetic material such as RNA and DNA of the cell, which in turn increases wrinkles.
Texture Changes Caused by the Sun - causing a thickening of the skin that enhances coarse wrinkles and yellow discoloration of the skin; in addition to a thinning of the skin that causes fine wrinkles, easy bruising, and skin tearing.
Pigment Changes Caused by the Sun - multiplies the development of freckles, and age spots or liver spots on the backs of the hands, chest, shoulders, arms, and upper back.
Whereas the more extreme effects of UV radiation include:
Skin Bumps Caused by the Sun - put another way, an increased number of moles and precancerous lesions called actinic keratoses, in addition to seborrheic keratosis which appear as warty lesions stuck onto the skin.
Skin Cancer Caused by the Sun - such as the 3 main skin cancers: melanoma, basal cell carcinoma, and squamous cell carcinoma. All of which have the capacity to be fatal.
PROTECTING SUN DAMAGED SKIN
The most indisputable form of guarding against sun damaged skin is to avoid any unnecessary exposure to the sun's harmful rays. Furthermore, there are a number of natural skincare creams available that assist in reversing the harsh damage caused by the sun.
