With the onset of spring, sunny weather sets in on the peninsula, and the human body begins to intensively produce vitamin D, accelerating biological processes. But is the sun really useful?

Unfortunately no. There are many downsides as well. For example, malignant skin diseases. Sunburn of the skin is considered by many people to be an unpleasant but harmless phenomenon. However, unfortunately, every time a person burns in the sun, his risk of melanoma increases — the most insidious form of skin cancer, which is also called the queen of oncology , — quotes the press service of the assistant of the Department of Dermatovenereology and Cosmetology of the Medical Academy of the Crimean Federal University, doctor of the highest category Gennady Nikolashin.

According to him, people with a large number of moles on their bodies are at particular risk, which, under the influence of sunlight, can degenerate into malignant tumors. In addition, excessive exposure to the sun causes premature aging of the skin.

The skin is dehydrated, the oxidative processes of subcutaneous lipids are activated, the content of vitamin E in the body, which is considered the main element of youth, drops sharply. As a result, the body cannot cope with free radicals, and a person begins to age at an accelerated rate , — the specialist notes.

In order to protect yourself from the harmful effects of sunlight in the spring and summer, doctors recommend that you always use sunscreen with a high protection factor, wear protective clothing and visit a dermatologist regularly.
