There is nothing more frustrating than seeing and feeling the effects of over exposure to the sun. For many, over exposure can happen in a matter of minutes, instead of hours. Even with highest level of Sun Wise education and prevention, sunburns happen. After all, we are only trying to enjoy the outdoors, but at what cost is the damage of over exposure causing to our skin.
Most of us are familiar with the typical signs of a sunburn, which include redness, hot skin, pain, itchy or tight skin, blisters, dehydration and peeling. These signs are dependent on the severity of the sunburn and some of these signs may come after you have already removed yourself from direct exposure to the sun's rays. Whether you see the signs while in the sun or after you remove yourself, the result is still a sunburn and therefore damage to your skin.
If you looked at sunburnt skin under a strong microscope, you would see that the cells and blood vessels have been damaged. Over time, the sun's UV light damages the fibers in the skin called elastin. When these fibers break down, the skin begins to sag, stretch, wrinkle, thin and lose its ability to go back into place after stretching. The skin also bruises and tears more easily, while taking longer to heal. Sun damage may not be as obvious and apparent when one is young, however by accelerating the effects of aging, this damage shows later in life.
