The sun's rays are generally good for the body. They promote the production of the happiness hormone serotonin, so the sun makes us happy. But UV rays can also have negative effects on our skin. UVB rays penetrate the upper layer of the skin, the epidermis, and are also responsible for painful sunburn.
The sun rays give us a beautiful glow and stimulate the skin’s vitamin D production which is particularly important for bone stability and our health in general. But you should always be cautious of the risks of UV rays. Because of their high energy levels, UVB rays can directly damage the DNA, which can lead to skin damage.
THE SKIN AGEING PROCESS
UVA rays penetrate the skin more deeply – all the way into the dermis. Although we are usually not aware of them because they aren’t painful, they form free radicals which are able to damage cells and DNA. This can lead to allergies and skin ageing: about 80% of wrinkles are caused by UVA light.
