What will happen to our skin if we do not apply sunscreen?

Being exposed to a little sunlight in the morning is good for your health to receive Vitamin D. However, if the light exposure of the sun is too much or the sunlight is too strong, especially the sunlight in Thailand, it is not good and you should avoid it immediately. Today, ACU PAY will show you what will happen to your skin if you do not apply sunscreen.

1. Burnt red skin because the skin cells are destroyed.

There are UVA and UVB rays in the sunlight. If the skin receives UVA radiation concentration too much, it can cause darkening, wrinkling of the skin, and facial blemishes, and UVB rays also cause skin burns as well.

2. Dark and uneven skin.

When our skin receives too much sunlight, our skin begins to produce more melanin pigment to prevent sunlight entering the skin. This results in darker skin color, visible black spots, and uneven skin color.

3. Melasma, freckles, and dark spots

Receiving the UV for a long time is a trigger for the cells under our skin to cause too much melanin pigments and will result in visible melasma, freckles, and dark spots. Especially parts of our face which are often exposed to the sunlight such as forehead or cheekbones. The older you are, the more visible of melasma, freckles, and dark spots on your face. Even though you are in the room and are not exposed to sunlight, the light from the light bulb is as scary as the sunlight. The light bulb and blue light from computers and smartphones have penetrating particles that penetrate the surface layer or inner skin. It stimulates collagen, elastin, melatonin, skin cells, and life clocks to malfunction. It can also be a factor that causes melasma.

4. Cause wrinkles which make you look older than you should be

Apart from the time that makes us older, an important precursor to aging our skin is UV light. For example, a very famous picture of a 69-year-old man who has been driving a truck for 28 years, the left side face getting sunlight through the glass and hurting his skin. The difference is very clear compared to his right face which is rarely exposed to sunlight. Or observe that the back of our hands is rougher and easier to wrinkle than other underclothes because UV rays destroy collagen and elastin that help tighten the skin.

5.Be at risk for skin cancer

UVB rays not only burn our skin but if received over a long time, subcutaneous DNA may also be activated into skin cancer cells.

How to Prevent the Dangers of Sunlight

The best way to do that is to apply sunscreen with SPF 50+ and squeeze the cream about two knuckles of your fingers. If it is water-based sunscreen or lotion, it should be squeezed to equal 1 – 2 coins with the size of the 10 baht coin. If you have to do activities in the sun, apply sunscreen again every two hours. The other way to prevent it is to use an umbrella or a hat to protect the skin.

The sunlight is more dangerous than you thought, isn’t it? If you understand its danger, apply your sunscreen every time before you go outside or you can also apply sunscreen when you are at home. Don’t forget to apply sunscreen regularly, everyone. You will be safe from sun damage.
