Most of us don't want to get sunburned, right?
However, even when we talk about "sunburn", each person has their own skin type, such as a skin type that "turns black instantly" or a skin type that "remains red but doesn't turn black". to black".
We will now explain why different skin types change color after a sunburn.
The main keyword is "melanin pigment"
People with naturally fair skin often get red when exposed to the sun, but rarely turn black. People with darker skin often turn red when exposed to sunlight, then quickly turn black and difficult to correct their original skin color.
The difference in this "skin color" is the amount of "melanin pigment". If the skin is light, the amount of natural melanin will be low, and if the skin is dark, the amount of natural melanin will be high.
When exposed to sunlight (ultraviolet rays), the skin, which is naturally rich in melanin, produces more and more melanin to prevent damage caused by ultraviolet rays.
In contrast, skin with less natural melanin pigment produces less melanin, making it more susceptible to UV damage and turning red like "skin burns". In other words, darker skin is said to be "more tanned", but in reality fair skin turns red who suffer the most from sunburn.
Sensitive skin and dry skin are more likely to get sunburned
If you find yourself getting sunburned more easily than before, regardless of your skin type, which is abundant in the natural pigment melanin, your skin is likely to be more sensitive to external aggressors.
For example, in the case of "dry skin", the amount of moisture in the keratinocytes and the intercellular spaces in the upper part of the skin is insufficient, resulting in impaired barrier function due to cleft formation. . This means that external agents such as ultraviolet rays cannot be repelled from the surface of the skin, allowing foreign substances to penetrate deep into the skin.
So, if you feel your skin tends to darken or red more easily than usual, you should consider that your skin is weakening and take precautions against external agents, including UV rays. (enhanced moisture-retention and UV protection measures).
If you are sensitive to sunscreen or other ingredients applied to your skin, we recommend wearing sunglasses, a hat and protective clothing against UV rays.
UV damage builds up over time
If you think you have high levels of melanin from birth, what's the point of UV protection? But don't confuse "dark skin" with "skin aging".
UV damage is not only a matter of appearance, but also accumulates in places deep within the skin that cannot be seen. A few years or even decades later, that subjectivity can have dire consequences. As a result, your skin will age, wrinkle and sag.
UV rays not only cause appearance problems like brown spots and wrinkles, but also more serious cases like skin cancer.
Whether your skin is prone to darkening or turning red, to protect your precious skin from damage, take UV protection measures not only when you go outside, but also indoors. (UVA rays can pass through window glass).
