How is the Sun Hurting Your Skin?

Overexposure to the sun's UV rays is damaging your skin


Summer is here and nothing is more important that protecting your skin at all times. While we all want to look younger and feel better about ourselves, overexposure to UV rays is damaging our skin.

That being said, lying out in the sun is relaxing, but too long is hazardous. When you feel your skin heating up and you start seeing redness occur, make sure you put on some extra sunblock or completely remove yourself from the sun. Too much exposure can lead to skin cancer, sunburns and sun poisoning.[slideshow:87053]

Stop harming your complexion and protect yourself from the sun. Here are a few ways the sun is damaging your skin.
