Sun damage refers to skin conditions which appear as a direct result of sun exposure. Ultraviolet (UV) electromagnetic (light) radiation present in sunlight damages skin cells and can cause a variety of skin problems, some more serious than others. Even if you don’t burn, sun exposure can still damage your skin and a suntan is actually a sign of sun damage, despite the healthy-looking appearance it may give you.

What Causes Sun Damage?

Getting older is an inevitable part of life, as time passes, we age. However, looking visibly older is generally due to external environmental factors, particularly exposure to the sun. These external factors not only accelerate, but change the process of ageing for the skin, damaging and make it vulnerable to blemishes and diseases.

Skin sun damage is generally located in the most sun-exposed part of the body. In women, it is especially common on the face, hands and décolletage, while for men, on the back.

Photo-ageing is a particular state of skin ageing caused by chronic damage from UV rays and sun exposure. The latter, in the long run, causes long term damage to the DNA of skin cells, as well as contributing to biological ageing.

This harmful habit, repeated over time, will damage the collagen and ultimately speed up the ageing process, resulting in:

• Deep wrinkles
• Loss of elasticity
• Dry and rough skin
• The presence of dilated capillaries on the cheeks, nose and ears
• Dark spots
• Flaking
• Actinic keratosis
• Skin cancer
