The sun brings benefits to the skin, it synthetizes Vitamin D and creates well-being. The sun can also have negative effects on the body not only on short term, like sun burns and insolation, but also on long term, being caused by the prolonged exposure to the sun, without using sun protection products, according to the skin type. Thus, we may add to the list DNA lesions, which can lead to skin cancer.
Photo-aging represents another effect of chronical sun exposure, without using sun protection products, the UVA rays distroy collagen and elastin fibers. The consequence is that the skin structure is affected.
