Long-term exposure to the sun's dangerous UV rays can result in sun damaged skin. Skin damage from the sun's UV rays can result in a variety of skin conditions, such as hyperpigmentation, age spots, fine lines, wrinkles, and even skin cancer.
The degree of sun damage determines how it should be treated. Topical creams, lotions, or serums that contain antioxidants or other helpful elements to help the skin heal can be used to treat mild instances. More invasive treatments, such chemical peels, microdermabrasion, or laser therapy, may be necessary for more severe cases.
Premature aging, such as the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and age spots, can be one of the long-term impacts of UV damage to the skin. Sun damage can, in more severe cases, raise your risk of developing skin cancer, including melanoma. Wearing protective clothes, finding shade during the hottest parts of the day, and applying broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30 are all critical ways to protect the skin from the sun.
