Sunburns are the bane of the summer, but can occur at anytime of the year. It is important to note that it is the UV light present in the sunlight which is responsible for sunburns. When your skin is exposed to UV light, it increases melanin production- a dark pigment present in the skin’s top layer- to form a protective layer against the UV light. However, this isn’t sufficient protection when the intensity or the exposure time of sunlight is too high & can ultimately lead to sunburns.
Sunburns are usually characterised by symptoms like- lack of hydration, skin aggravation, skin rashes, redness and extreme tingling in the skin and the eyes. It is important to take care of your skin in all seasons. But it’s extra important in summer as the best way to prevent this is ensuring that your skin is protected against the sun.
