What are the signs of sun damage?
Spots, blotches, and wrinkles that show up over time are really signs of the sun’s damage to your skin. So is a suntan. The sun’s beams bring out a chemical in your body associated with melanin, which darkens your skin, part of an effort to protect it.
Sun exposure causes most of the skin changes that we think of as a normal part of aging. Over time, the sun's ultraviolet (UV) light damages the fibers in the skin called elastin. When these fibers break down, the skin begins to sag, stretch, and lose its ability to go back into place after stretching.
Sun damage can leave you with wrinkles, fine lines, spots and age spots but it can also lead to more serious conditions like cancer. It is so important to protect your skin from UVA and UVB rays
