What Is Sun Damage?
Sun damage describes premature aging of the skin and skin cancer due to exposure to ultraviolet (UV) rays. There are two types of UV rays that cause sun-damaged skin: UVA and UVB. UVAs are longer-wave rays that activate the skin in an unhealthy way and will give you a tan. These rays are not responsible for sunburns. They penetrate the skin deeper than UVB rays and trigger premature aging and skin cancer.
UVB, on the other hand, are shorter-wave rays that are responsible for sunburns, but they can also accelerate early signs of aging. UVB rays are considered the most common cause of skin cancers.
