Tanning skin like sunburns attacks the skin’s DNA that produces genetic defects and can lead to skin cancer known as Malignant Melanoma.
Therefore it is essential to shield your skin against the harmful UV rays that can result to serious health issues
if you let yourself unprotected while frolicking in the beach or outdoors.
It is recommended to take precaution and regulate how often you get a tan because tanning skin can cause skin cancer. Getting a tan in daily basis is not good for your skin as it depletes your skin of its much needed moisture.
However, there’s a big contrast from some different cultures like Southern Mediterranean countries of Europe that still believe having tan skin play a significant role in terms of beauty. But countries particularly in Asia or some countries in northern part of the globe considered fairness of the skin indicates a person’s appeal or attractiveness.
Which means that skin color is associated with economic status and social roles in the society specifically in British and French elite wherein they became famous for their focus on keeping a lighter skin tone. Despite the fact that others disapproved those kinds of frivolous mentalities, still plenty of people agreed that skin color is still important but in totally different consequences and reasons.
Anyway, it is advisable not to overexpose ourselves to the sun or to the tanning beds in order to prevent premature aging of the skin as well as to minimize the potential risks from harmful effects of sun rays.
Make sure to protect your skin by wearing sunscreens that contain SPF 15 or higher especially during the time when the rays of sun are in the strongest level between 11 am o 4 pm. Furthermore, you can also protect yourself from sun exposure by using umbrellas, wearing hats and shadow places.
To avoid dehydration, drink plenty amount of water and determine your sunscreen’s expiration date to avoid dealing with sunburned or irritated skin later. Prevention is always the cure on this particular issue.
