Hello everyone today I will be looking at how the skin can be damaged by solar radiation.
Short term effects of skin exposures to ultraviolet radiation,particularly to UVB include surnbird,which is most intense 24hours later repeated exposure to ultraviolet radiation to obtain a deeper tan causes the epidermis to thicken which results to skin feeling dry.
Exposure to solar ultraviolet radiation can aggravate certain skin diseases and when combined with some commonly used medicine and chemicals,can cause the skin to react abnormally to light.It can also affect the immune system,and this may play a role in skin cancer and some infectious diseases.
Long term effects of skin exposures to ultraviolet radiation include skin cancers and photoageing. Ultraviolet radiation can cause two types of skin cancers namely; s 1.Non-melanoma skin cancers and squamous cell carcinoma from the great majority of skin cancers and solar exposures is the main factor in the development. 2.Melanoma skin cancer is much less common than non-melanoma skin cancers,but it is the main cause of death from skin cancers
