The sun has been implicated in multiple negative consequences, but we must not forget that its positive effects are much more, when exposed to it safely! Our skin has a specific defence mechanism against the sun and this is none other than the melanin! When exposed to sunlight we produce melanin resulting tan!
Pros VS Cons
The sun has been implicated in multiple negative consequences but we must not forget that its positive effects are much more, when exposed to it safely, such as:
- Production of vitamin D is essential for calcium absorption, antioxidant and care of our bones!
- Secretion of serotonin - the hormone of happiness - and endorphins - Wellness and optimism.
- Production of white blood cells - immune system enhancement
- Regulation of melatonin produced - insomnia
Overexposure can cause severe redness, pain, blisters, burns, dehydration, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, lentigines, dilated vessels, premature ageing.
