As we mentioned in Part 1, Melanin is a natural pigment found in skin. Melanin partially protects the skin from sunlight’s harmful UV rays. As Spring warmth will soon give way to Summer heat, you have to know what to do to make your skin stay healthy in the rising heat. Although exposure to sunlight triggers increased melanin production, too much exposure to UV rays may cause many undesirable skin conditions such as dry patches, acne breakouts, dark spots, rough spots, sunburn and skin cancer. These skin conditions can be very worrisome. To break it down a bit, UVA causes skin changes associated with premature skin aging (photoaging), while UVB causes sunburn. Recurrence of these skin problems makes the skin to age faster leading to the affected persons looking older than they are.
To prevent exposure of your skin and eyes to harmful effects of sunlight’s UV radiations take the following precautions:
- Avoid or limit sunlight exposure between 10 am-4 pm when UVB radiations are strongest.
- Stay in the shade.
- Wear clothes that cover skin areas exposed to sunlight. Tightly woven fabrics with dark colors offer more protection.
- Wear wide-brim hat or use umbrella.
- Use broad-spectrum sunglasses to protect your eyes and surrounding skin areas from UVA and UVB radiations.
- Use broad-spectrum sunscreen containing SPF of at least 30 to block UVA and UVB.
