The Harmful Effects of Sun Exposure on Your Skin

sun damaged skin and wrinkles

While the sun's warm rays may feel inviting, prolonged and unprotected exposure can have detrimental effects on your skin. UV radiation from the sun is a leading cause of skin damage, including premature aging, sunburn, and an increased risk of skin cancer. Over time, the sun can break down collagen and elastin fibers in your skin, leading to wrinkles, fine lines, and sagging. It can also cause hyperpigmentation, sunspots, and uneven skin tone. Protecting your skin from the sun's harmful effects with sunscreen, protective clothing, and shade is essential for maintaining its health and youthful appearance.
