Sun exposure can have harmful effects.
The skin can be permanently damaged by excessive exposure to sunlight. Sunburn is short-term damage. If you continue burning your skin in the summer heat, it could lead to severe problems like skin cancer. Here are some sun-related issues and tips for skin care.
- Sunburn Short-term sun exposure can cause the skin to become red, hot, and painful. The skin that has been burned may start to peel after a few weeks. Cool showers or baths will help. Dabur Gulabari Moisturizing Lotion is a great skin care product to soothe your skin. It helps counteract skin tightness and dryness. Learn more about how to remove sunburn.
- Heat exhaustion When the temperature in the body reaches up to 40degC. The average temperature is around 37degC. You may experience headaches, nausea, excessive sweating, and faintness at these temperatures. The body loses water and becomes dehydrated. Untreated heat exhaustion may progress to heatstroke, which is a severe condition. Heat exhaustion can be treated quickly by moving to a cool area, away from direct sunlight, and drinking plenty of fluids. Recovery is usually quick, within 30 minutes. There are no long-term problems.
- Heatstroke/sunstroke: Heatstroke occurs when the core body temperature rises above 40degC. This is a potentially serious condition! Cells in the body start to break down, and vital bodily functions cease working. The symptoms include feeling sick, confusion, and rapid shallow breathing. If you experience any of these symptoms or notice someone else with them, call 911 immediately. In a hospital, heatstroke is treated by cooling the body to lower its core temperature and replacing the lost fluids with an intravenous drip.
- Skin Damage: Long-term exposure to the sun can lead to severe skin damage. Sun damage can cause premature aging, wrinkles, warts, and cell damage. Use Dabur Gulabari rose water to catch these problems early and replenish the skin’s moisture.
- Skin cancer:
- According to some estimates, sun exposure is responsible for 8-9 skin cancers out of 10. Everyone should protect their skin regardless of age. But protecting children is more important. Safeguarding your children from sun exposure is essential, even though skin cancer is rare in children. This increases their risk of skin cancer as an adult. Take extra precautions with children and keep babies away from the sun.
