The Importance of Sunscreen
The sun makes us feel warm and gives our bodies much needed Vitamin D. You can, however, get too much of a good thing and the sun’s Ultra Violet A and B rays can also damage skin, leading to premature wrinkles and carcinomas.
The UVB rays can cause skin to redden and burn within 15 minutes of exposure in some people, especially during the summer. The UVA rays penetrate deeper into the skin causing wrinkles and skin cancer in some people. Cancer cells are the result of excessive radiation that has actually altered the DNA of keratinocyte cells in the basal layer of the epidermis. Both A and B UV rays can contribute to cancer cells.
