Harmful Effects Of The Sun

Wouldn’t you just love to head outside on a bright sunny day, just to enjoy the beauty of the great outdoors? Well, of course you would. However, too much sun can be very harmful to you. This is relevant especially during summer as you would be spending most of your time on the beach or just shopping. The exposure to UV rays can cause major health problems such as skin cancer, premature aging, skin damage etc. So here are some detailed harmful effects of the sun on you.Sun damage to the eyesThe UV rays can harm the retina causing blurred vision and blindness. The retina is the part that creates visual images and sends them to the visual centres of the brain for identification. You may also develop cloudy bumps on the cornea which may then enlarge and cover it, causing blindness.

Cataracts are also a common symptom of sun damage on eyes. Always wear protection over your eyes such as glasses frames Runaway Bay when you step out in the sun. carry and umbrella and do not look directly at the sun. The burning sensation you feel when you directly look means it is too much for your eyes to handle so prevent it.Heat strokeHeat strokes are very serious and can be life threatening. This is caused by prolonged presence under the sun.

Your body will soon give in to the immense heat and you will feel dizzy, while your body temperature rapidly increases in just 10 to 15 minutes. If not treated immediately, you may experience slurred speech, confusion and altered mental status, loss of consciousness, seizures etc. If you always feel weak even if you spend a minimal time under the sun, it means your body does not react well to the heat hence try staying indoors. WrinklesSunlight boosts the appearing of wrinkles in an early age. The UV rays harm and deteriorate collagen that keeps the skin intact. As it deteriorates, the skin becomes saggy and fragile, causing it to make you look older than you actually are. Also, wrinkles around eyes will appear as you keep squinting while under the sun. Well, you cannot hide behind sunglasses forever, so avoid going in the sun and see a dermatologist.Skin cancer
