What Is Sun Damage?
Sun damage is an umbrella term that refers to the premature aging of the skin due to overexposure to ultraviolet (UV) rays. Frequent sun exposure hurts your skin’s ability to maintain antioxidants, hyaluronic acid content, and vitamins. When these components are negatively affected, we become more susceptible to developing uneven pigmentation, brown spots, and other such issues. Though this kind of damage does occur naturally over time, sun exposure tends to speed up the process.
What is the Difference Between UVA and UVB Rays?
Sun damage occurs when our bodies are overexposed to ultraviolet (UV) rays. There are two types of UV rays that cause damage to the skin: UVA and UVB. UVA are longer waves that give you a tan, but also activate the skin in an unhealthy way. UVA rays are not responsible for sunburns. They penetrate the skin much deeper than UVB rays and trigger premature aging. UVB rays are shorter waves that can also accelerate early signs of aging. Though less penetrating than UVA rays, UVB rays are the more common cause of various skin cancers.
