The days are longer, the weather is slowly warming up, and many of us are out in the sun enjoying the fresh air. Spending time outdoors in the sunlight is a great way to obtain the vitamin D your body needs, but you need to protect yourself from harmful ultraviolet (UV) light.
Too much sun exposure leads to skin damage. Sunburn is an example of severe skin damage and a painful reminder that little to no protection from UV light can be harmful to your skin. Even if you have a darker complexion and your skin doesn’t burn easily in the sun, you are still exposed to UV rays and need proper skin protection.
