Reader: In many parts of the world, people like to be out in the sun. They flock to the beach and other outdoor places to take in the sunshine. Despite the problems that long-term sun exposure can have on the skin, many people fail to properly protect themselves.
Reader: There are two types of ultra-violet rays that harm the skin: UVA and UVB. UVA rays can cause the skin to age. They go deep into the skin and damage the substance that makes skin elastic and smooth. This can cause your skin to age faster. UVB harms DNA and causes sunburn. The skin becomes red and swollen. Cells which cannot be repaired die off and cause the skin to peel. Unrepaired DNA damage caused by UVA or UBA rays can build up and result in skin cancer.
Reader: Skin cancer affects one in five people making it the most common cancer globally. People need to recognize the early signs of cancer. Check skin for any spots that change in shape or size. Look for any growth that gets bigger and is brown, clear, or multi-colored. Other signs include a spot that hurts, itches or bleeds. Any marks that change colour or grow larger than 1cm should be looked at by a doctor.
Reader: Sunscreen protects the skin from UVA and UVB rays. It forms a barrier on the skin by absorbing or reflecting UV rays. It should be applied every two hours and again after being in the water. People should also avoid the sun from 10am to 4pm when the sun is most intense. It is best to cover any exposed skin such as wearing long trousers and shirts while out in the sun. Also wear a hat that protects the back of the neck and ears. Be especially careful with young children as their skin can burn much faster than an adult.
