The Effects of Sun Damaged Skin
In the worst-case scenario, too much unprotected sun exposure can cause saggy skin, fine lines and wrinkles, sun spots, and premature aging – and those are just the cosmetic concerns!

Why You Should Always Protect Yourself from the Sun
You’ve likely already heard of the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) rays. But did you know that those rays are carrying radiation from the sun through car windows and clothing deep into the skin? So, even if you can’t see it happening, when you’re out in the sun, UV rays penetrate your skin and can cause skin cells damage.
Freckles and moles are examples of skin changes that occur due to sun exposure. Skin exposed to UV rays also ages at a faster rate, becoming tight and having a leather-like texture. Not only can you develop skin cancer, your immune system can take a hit, as well. All of these effects of sun exposure can occur no matter your age or skin color. For that reason, everyone is advised to protect exposed skin when in the sun.
Keep in mind that you may be getting sun even when you’re not expecting it, such as when traveling in a car. Certain medications like birth control pills can increase your sensitivity to sunlight and make sun damage to your skin more likely. And just because you feel cool (such as when you are in the water at the pool or beach), remember that UV rays reflect off water so your exposure may actually be more intense in those situations.
