It is almost impossible to live your normal live and or engage in your normal daily activities without coming under the sun. This is especially true when you live in places where there is abundant or long period of sunlight. For example, the tropical regions of the world and summer in the temperate regions are regions with high sun heat and longer sun duration.
It is common to find people out on sunny days. Too much exposure in the sun causes serious problems for the skin. Some of the common problems caused as a result of too much sun’s exposure include sunburn, cancer, dehydration, as well as wrinkling of the skin and so on.

Most of the skin aging is caused by the sun’s rays. The sun’s UV rays is harmful as it can penetrate deep into the skin damaging the collagen in the skin thereby causing wrinkles to develop early and quickly on the skin. That is why people whose job or activities require they expose their skin in the sun without protection develop wrinkles quicker than those whose job is to work in an office or places shielded from the sun’s rays.
The key to avoid wrinkles caused by too much exposure to the sun is to protect your skin from the sun’s rays especially the areas of your body that is always expose to the sun such as your face and neck.
Some of the ways to protect yourself from the sun’s rays is to wear sunscreen whenever you are out in the sun irrespective of how cloudy the weather is outside. Wearing sun’s protection clothing, hat, sunglasses, etc. and also seek refuge if the sun becomes intense.
