A sunburn is a form of skin injury that is caused by overexposure to the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) rays. It can also be from artificial UV light like tanning beds. A sunburn is an indicator that damage has been done to the skin. The degree of damage basically depends on the melanin present in the skin and how much time you have spent under the sun.
Melanin is a skin pigment that determines and identifies one’s complexion. The more melanin present in the skin, the darker one’s complexion. The more important function of melanin is that it absorbs and dissolves UV light. When the skin is exposed to UV light, melanin starts to multiply to protect the body. It creates a tan. This is the reason why those with darker complexions do not get sunburned as much and as often compared to those who have a fairer complexion.
More melanin does not equate to skin protection, especially from more harmful UV rays like UVA that can penetrate deeper into the skin’s layers. All skin types or complexions are susceptible to skin damage from the sun including skin cancer! Also, hazy and cloudy days can cause sunburns too because surfaces like water, sand, snow, white and bright painted surfaces can reflect UV rays into our skin!
The signs of sunburn usually appear just a few hours after unprotected sun exposure. Even areas not exposed can burn if the protection is not enough to block UV rays from entering and penetrating the skin. Exposed areas like the ears, lips and scalp can also suffer sunburn.
The following are some of the more common signs and symptoms of a sunburn:
After a few days, the top layer of the skin begins to peel to slough off dead skin cells. This is the body’s way of trying to heal the damage in the skin. Repeated and more intense exposure that causes sunburn may result in premature skin aging, lesions and skin cancer.
Not only sunburns, but the accumulated periods of repeated and unprotected sun exposure, damages our skin on a whole new level. It destroys collagen in our skin, the protein that makes our skin strong, firm, healthy and elastic!
If we are not scared of sunburns because we think they are no big deal then the thought of premature skin aging and having leathery, wrinkled skin should at least make us want to protect our skin from sun damage! Just imagine looking 10 to 20 years older than your age because of the sun?
