Effect Of Sunlight On The Face
I want to ask … There are no side effects or effects when our faces are exposed to the morning sun … Thanks
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Basically sunlight contains ultraviolet radiation. Ultraviolet (UV) rays can cause various side effects on the skin, including:
darker skin (suntan)
aging of the skin (can be marked by the appearance of wrinkles, dry, and rough, can also be marked by the appearance of brownish / blackish spots on the skin)
increase the risk of skin cancer
Besides having side effects on the skin, exposure to UV rays can also affect the eye (accelerating the occurrence of cataracts in the lens of the eye, increasing the risk of macular degeneration, pterygium) and the body's immune system as well (immunosuppressive effects or decreasing the body's immune system).
Therefore, you are strongly advised not to bask in the sun, especially for a long time. When you go out of the house, you are strongly advised to use a sunscreen that has an SPF of at least 30 and if you continue to be outdoors for a long time, you are advised to re-apply every 2 hours. Besides using sunscreen, you are still advised to use other protectors such as hats, umbrellas, and sunglasses to protect your eyes.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
