The Negative Effects Of Excess Sun Exposure

A small amount of sun is good for you, but excess sun exposure can result in health problems.

We all love the warm weather and soaking up some sun from time to time. A small amount of sun actually has benefits, giving your body calcium and vitamin D. However, too much sun exposure can be dangerous. The ultraviolet light rays that come from the sun are what can potentially cause damage to our skin and health. Here are some of the negative effects of excess sun exposure. 

Lowered Immune System

Your immune system is made up of white blood cells that work to protect your body from various illnesses. If your skin gets sunburnt, the white blood cells have to help create new cells, which means they won’t be able to work as hard to keep you protected from other illnesses.

Skin Changes

Excess sun exposure can cause skin cells with melanin to begin to clump and form together. These clumps eventually create freckles and moles. While most of them are harmless, some can develop cancer over time.

Eye Injuries

Excess sun exposure can damage the tissue in your eyes. The cornea is the outer layer of your area and can be burnt by the sun. The sun can temporarily blur your vision and cause cataracts to develop over time. If cataracts are left untreated, blindness can result.

Early Aging

When you spend too much time in the sun, it damages your skin. However, it doesn’t stop at just temporarily burning the skin. The sun can also cause you to develop premature wrinkles, tight skin, and can even create dark spots as well.
