Sun, which is known to be the ultimate source of energy and the most dominating star our planet has a role to play when, it comes to our skin. Most of the people like to take a sunbath in cold days and believe me I know that it feels like heaven but the thing that we are not able to see is the way it might affects our skin and you are getting sun damage.
Effect of Sunlight
Over exposing the skin to the sun might decrease the natural moistening agents of our sweat gland and sometimes causing irreversible changes in the skin cell structure and leaving you with problems like dry skin and sun burns.
Most of the times when you feel that you are away and safe from the sun and the damage it is going to do to your skin but we are going to help you find the mirror to the reality of the situation of the unexpected sun damage you are facing.
1. Even Taking a Small walk damage your skin
While going out many a times you choose to opt for a four wheeler just to save yourself from exposing your skin to the sun’s harmful rays but what you are unaware of is the fact that how your car or even small walks are exposing you indirectly to the same problems.
2. Even in a Cloudy day
Clouds help to create an illusion where you think that you are free from suns exposure and cool breeze over it helping to sway your mind to let you stay out and going for a walk but as discussed in the case of window partial blockage goes with clouds as well and clouds block only a fraction of the ultra violet rays and being one of the major reason for indirect sun damage.
3. Even in a Snowy day
If you are living in a snowy region then you should be aware that the region is like the red light area for the sun damage as snow is the perfect reflector of the harmful UV rays and the rays reflected by the snow can even pass through the glass and harm your skin so the higher the altitude the more you will be exposed to the sun.
4. Sitting next to window
Some time we need to give extra hours to our work and we feel that we are working in a shadow of a window but even sitting next to window is harmful if that window is facing the sun rays because the rays crossing the window make it more powerful to burn the particular area and if its our skin then most dangerous. As we all heard the example that sun-rays can burn a paper if its crossing or passing through the lens.
Believe on the fact
The most controversial fact being the fact that exposure to sun rays in car can cause skin cancer and some studies shows sides of the body prone to skin cancer depending upon the left hand drive or the right hand drive and the noon time of the day being the worst for the case. The sun UV rays is made up of different and many ultra violets rays major being the UVA rays and UVB rays and windows are just able to block UVB majorly.
Solution is always there if we implement it:
We are here very clear with the fact that just thinking that you are away from exposing your skin to the sun is not going to help but applying sunscreen and proper type of clothing will surely.
According to a survey only a fraction of people have adopted for using good sunscreen on regular basis while it is the best way of avoiding the damage it creates to the sun exposed skin so just go for a change and try using sunscreen on regular basis and notice the difference.
