Why is a Sunburn Bad?

Cynthia Bailey, MD|August 30, 2016

Did you or someone you love get a sunburn this summer?

Do you know the impact that sunburn will have on the future of your skin's health?

What exactly is a sunburn?

Is there anything you can do to help your skin heal faster if you get a sunburn?

Is there any way to reverse some of the long term effects from sun damage? 

Sunburns and summer are almost synonymous. Long hot days spent outdoors. Picnics, the beach, kayaking, inner-tubing down a river or floating on cool water, boating, cycling, hiking, ballgames, getting lost for hours gardening – in summer, you’re outside and you’re happy. I am too!

What is important to know is that you can enjoy lingering outdoors this summer and all year round without the burn. Those sunburns can unfortunately seal the fate of your skin for the rest of your life. Protecting your skin from this day forward will help to reduce your risk of the unwanted future consequences such as skin cancer, wrinkles, skin thinning and pigment mottling (including brown spots and blotches).

Even one carefree sunburn tells a story of what’s potentially ahead, and it’s not good. Learn more about sunburns, healing sunburned skin and repairing some of the damage from past sunburns. 

I cover it all in my new free ebook, which is now available for download: 

The Sunburn Guide: Everything You Need to Know About Sunburns.

Prevent sunburns for the rest of your life. That includes the end of this summer, fall's golden sunlight, and that sunny winter escape that you'll be dreaming about soon. The fate of your skin, and potentially your life, depends on it.
