With Singapore being very close to the equator, sunlight is plenty and thus the level of UV rays that is showered upon us is always in the High to Extreme Range.
So what are some of the harmful effects of UV Rays?
1) Premature Aging of the Skin
UV rays penetrate to the inner layers of the epidermis and slowly destroys structural cells. Slowly and eventually,this results in loss of elasticity, premature aging of the skin and wrinkles.
2) Sunburn & Skin Cancer
The shorter UV rays, also called UVB, is the cause of the painful feeling on your skin after you have been exposed to the harsh sunlight all day long. That painful feeling is sunburn, and at the same time makes you feel lethargic and could affect your immunity system.
Especially for young children whose skin are more delicate, a few instances of blistering sunburns in their childhood doubles their chances of skin cancer in their adulthood. Do not be fooled that there are no UV Rays in sunlight that are not as burning or on a cloudy day. It can still cause damage to skin cells and increase the risk of developing skin cancer. Regular exposure to UV radiation year after year can also lead to skin cancer.
