Because sun damage not only affects your physical appearance but threatens health, it’s important to treat your skin and also see a medical professional for regular checks, new moles and changing spots.
According to the Skin Cancer Foundation, overexposure to the sun’s ultraviolet rays can cause skin cancer and precancerous solar keratosis (sun spots) over time. However, regular skin examinations and proper care can reverse signs of aging and reduce your chance of getting sick.
