Why you should Shield Your Skin From the Sun

People living in the tropics are blessed with sunshine all year round and tanned skin is a perceived sign of health. But did you know that your radiant tan is really a sign of skin injury?

Our skin produces melanin, a brown pigment that’s designed to protect us from the sun’s ultraviolet (that’s UV) rays. But even melanin won’t shield your skin from the sun’s harm if you don’t use extra protection. And if you have acne, you’ll need to love your skin even more.

What Sun Exposure can Cause

1. Uneven skin pigmentation, which may appear in various forms such as:

  • • Irregular skin colouring
  • • Age or liver spots
  • • Dark brown spots on the lips
  • • Irregular reddish-brown areas, most commonly seen on the neck and chest
  • • Bumpy patches of rough skin in varying colour, commonly found on the face, ears, hands and forearms
  • • Dark flat spots that will get bigger and darker, commonly seen on exposed body parts, including face, hands and legs
  • • Redness or mottling of the skin

2. Premature aging, such as wrinkles, creases and sagging skin

3. Weaker immunity

4. The big one that everyone talks about is of course,skin cancer.

Sun on Acne-prone Skin can Cause:

  • • Formation of blackheads and whiteheads (comedones)
  • • Increased development of oil-producing glands
  • • Skin aging
  • • Acne scarring.

Protect Your Skin

  • • Do avoid lengthy exposure to the sun, especially at midday
  • • Do apply sunscreen
  • • Do consume less carbohydrates
  • • Do use the correct cosmetic products to ensure your skin is properly cleansed and moisturized.
