Summer is ending, but not your need to protect your skin from. While our skin cells regenerate every 3 to 4 weeks, the tans and sunburns that we get are signs of the damage that has already occurred to the DNA of our skin cells by UV rays.
The first reaction of the body to the damage is to slough off the cells that are damaged. This itchy process is the one that is being undertaken when you see your skin peeling.
But just because new skin is generated, this doesn’t mean that the damage produced by the initial sunburn has be reversed. These effects are cumulative.
So as you are heading out to the soccer field to watch your kids play, taking a long walk on a mountain trail, or any other activity that exposes you to UV-A and UV-B rays, make sure you put on the sunscreen.
