Sunburns & melanoma…Warning!

  • by

UV rays from the sun actually alter how skin cells create chemicals, causing the breakdown of collagen & preventing skin from repairing itself. In fact UV rays account for 80% of skin ageing. If one sustains 5 or more sunburns BEFORE THE AGE OF 18 they increase their lifetime chances of getting melanoma by 80%. If you sustain 5 or more sunburns in a lifetime you will DOUBLE your chances of getting melanoma.
