“This man was a truck driver for most of his life and never put on sunscreen. “We thinks that the sun exposure that is only on one part of his face is the cause of the damage,” said dermatologist Jennifer Gordon from the Northwestern University, according to LiveScience.
This example can be a lesson to you. Exposure to ultraviolet rays (UVA) can easily go through glass window, even if the vehicle you use uses window films to prevent sunlight.
Experts warn ultraviolet rays can cause damage on the skin, affects connective tissues of the skin, such as collagen and elastin.
“The result will cause the effects of aging, like wrinkles,” explains Gordon.
Exposure to sunlight can also lead to skin cancer. American Academy of Dermatology recommends using a sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30 that provides protection against the effects of UVA and UVB.
This does not mean you should not always avoid sunlight, because sunlight has many health benefits as well, like as a source of vitamin D. It was also known that sunlight helps couples have children faster. For children, playing outdoors is also good for eyes.Tagged with:
