Skin Threats from SunburnsSunburn can be a serious health concern – did you know that the dangers of sunburn go beyond the cosmetic problems of redness and irritation? For example, sunburn increases your risk of skin cancer and it can make you look old before your time. When your skin is damaged by the sun’s UV rays, the skin cells are broken and the blood vessels damaged. Sunburn takes a few hours following sun exposure for the effects to show, but during this time the skin is being affected. Here’s how sunburns damage your skin and what you can do to prevent sunburn occurring.

  1. Sunburn: Cosmetic Effects

Sunburn does not look great. For a start, the redness and blistering is unattractive and painful. But when this redness has faded, the skin is still marked – sunburned skin turns leathery and is usually drier and can remain discolored. Sunburn can cause skin conditions like psoriasis to get worse.

  1. Premature Aging From Sunburn

When your skin is burned the cells and tissues are damaged, making them less elastic and weaker. You see fine lines, deep wrinkles, freckles, age spots, sagging skin, and rough patches on the skin. When you repeatedly burn your skin it looks older than it actually is.

  1. Skin Cancer and Sunburn

The biggest health problem to come from sunburn is skin cancer. If you are never sunburned and you protect yourself from exposure to the sun then you reduce your risk of suffering from skin cancer. While you may not want to stay out of the sun completely, if you prevent sunburn then you help protect your skin from cancer in a big way. It is especially important to keep children safe in the sun – repeated sunburns in childhood dramatically increase the risk of skin cancer as an adult.

  1. Sunburn: Infection

You may also suffer from an infection if you have sunburn because the skin is broken and blistered. Prevent infection problems by protecting broken skin with a wound dressing and keeping the area clean and dry.

  1. Eye Damage from Sunburn

Your eyes can also get burned by UV rays. Prevent eye problems by wearing sunglasses that block UV rays and keeping out of the sun when it is at its strongest.

In order to prevent sunburn from occurring, make sure you wear sunscreen, a wide brimmed hat, sunglasses, and long-sleeved clothes. Stay out of direct sunlight when the sun is at its strongest.

    I had been yo-yo dieting for several years after having kids, trying to lose the extra weight I had gained when pregnant. I tried just about every diet out there and failed at each one of them because they weren't sustainable. I was introduced to the Ketogenic diet in June of 2018 and thats when my weight loss journey truly began. I give credit to Innovative Health & Wellness by keeping me accountable in my weight loss journey with weekly weigh ins, support from the entire team and educated coaching. I'm loving my new lifestyle and finally feel comfortable in my own skin!

    “Love this place! Stefania and Valerie at the front desk are so sweet:) They always have smiles on their faces, and are so helpful! I came here at the recommendation of a friend after being rear ended in a wreck, and having awful neck pain. I have to admit I was a little nervous at first because I am a very private person, and it is difficult for me to have people in my personal space, but the whole staff made me feel so comfortable! Dr. Orlando is so kind and gentle. He really puts your mind at ease, and just makes you feel better!!! I don’t know how they do it, but no matter what kind of day I’ve had at work, I always leave this place smiling:) Thanks for taking such great care of me!!!”*

    “I have been going to Innovative for almost 7 months for weight loss and it has been an awesome experience! I have lost 60 pounds and definitely could not have done it without the support and encouragement of the staff! I go there every week for weigh-ins and blood pressure checks, and they have become like family to me. They go through my highs and lows with me, and keep me on track. It has been a life-changing experience, and I would highly recommend Innovative if you are ready to lose weight and lead a healthier life!”*
