What Is Sun Damaged Skin?

Sun damage is a state of the skin being comprised by sun exposure. The sun emits ultraviolet (UV) radiation that can damage skin cells and cause numerous skin complaints. Although the skin may not appear physically burnt, sun exposure can damage the skin on a deeper, cellular level. 

Over-exposure To Harmful UV Rays

When the skin is exposed to the harmful UV rays of the sun, it produces a protein called melanin to protect the skin from burning. Therefore, when the skin becomes more tanned, it is as a result of excessive sun exposure for the individual's skin. Sunlight is essential for providing the body with the source needed to produce vitamin D. 

However, when the skin is unprotected, it can result in cellular damage, which can cause the following: 

  • Pigmentation
  • Age spots
  • Wrinkles
  • Thread veins
  • Sunburn
  • Skin cancers
