According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), more than 1/3 of adults and 70 percent of children were prone to sunburns last year. Quite often we will be outside unaware of the damage the sun's rays can cause. Summer is a favorite time of the year and we all like to spend it at the beach or enjoying outdoor sports.

In the perspective article I am trying to explain the following:

1) Reason behind sunburn
2) Signs and symptoms of sunburns
3) How to prevent sunburn naturally?
4) The natural ways for sunburn relief

Reasons Behind Sunburns

In the most simple words, when your skin gets exposed to sunlight for a longer period it gets burned, eventually turning red and irritated.

According to the American Cancer Society, exposure to ultraviolet (UV) radiation is a major risk factor for most skin cancers. Sunlight is the main source of UV rays. Tanning lamps and beds are also sources of UV rays. People who get a lot of UV exposure from these sources are at greater risk for skin cancer.



Even though UV rays make up only a very small portion of the sun’s rays, they are the main cause of the sun’s damaging effects on the skin. UV rays damage the DNA of skin cells.
