Skin care during the summer months
Keywords: lip care, skin care, Summer, sunburn
AbstractSunlight can induce a feeling of well-being and is needed for the formation of vitamin D. However, sunlight can also have negative effects on the skin, the most serious of which is skin cancer. Sunburn may occur when the skin is exposed to ultraviolet radiation (UVR), most often after being in the sun for too long. Although most cases of sunburn are not severe, a lifetime of sun exposure and/or frequent sunburn increases the risk of developing skin cancer, wrinkles and other cosmetic skin concerns such as an uneven skin tone, freckles and sun (age) spots. Sunburn and ultraviolet radiation can also increase the risk of developing cataracts (when the lens in the eye becomes cloudy).
