No and seeing that we are approaching winter, definitely not. Most of us love being outside in the summertime. Sunshine not only makes everything look better, it makes us feel good too. But ultraviolet rays in the sunlight can damage the cells in your body. You should do everything you can to avoid getting burnt by the sun. This is because over time small amounts of sunburn damage can build up, which may lead to the development of skin cancer or melanoma. Tanning is a natural process. Your skin creates the brown-coloured pigment called melanin to protect it against the harmful UV rays in sunlight. This means even the lightest suntan is evidence of skin damage. While a tan is your body's way of protecting itself against UV rays, if the damaged skin cells can't repair themselves, they can become cancerous. You should be particularly careful in spring when your skin is pale. A tan doesn't guarantee that you will avoid skin cancer later on in life. Sun exposure is a key factor in skin cancer, and the number of cases has doubled over the last few decades. Maybe I can try one of those "fake n' bake" tanning salons. Who knows, after doing that for awhile, I can end up with dark leathery skin like this guy:
Have a great day.
