01 February 2016

Summer is here again. It is very nice to get the benefits of the sunlight (Keep right our vitamin D levels, enjoy outdoors activities with family and friends.) However, staying out in the sun too frequently or for too long exposes our skin to multiple harmful consequences.

These consequences include:

  • Sunburn
  • Photoaging
  • Sun-related rashes such as photodermatitis.
  • Pigmentary changes due to chronic sun exposure (white/brown spots)
  • Worsening of skin conditions such as Lupus, Rosacea
  • Premalignant skin lesions such as Actinic keratoses
  • Developing a skin cancer.
