Skin Damage – Protection and Prevention

Protecting from skin damage

Our skin is one the most important parts of the body as it can help prevent infection, helps regulate body temperature, and balance bodily liquids. It is important to always protect the skin as much as possible to prevent damage skin, or to enhance the healing process of previously harmed skin. Damaged skin can lead to further infections and skin disorders with longer effects, which is why prioritizing your skin is a must. Damage can occur due to excessive sunlight exposure, substance use, lack of sleep, stress, diet, using harmful facial products, and poor hygiene habits. Skin damage can also occur from injuries such as burns, radiation, electricity, chemicals, and sunlight exposure. 

The long-term effects of UV exposure include skin cancer, infections, nerve damage, and even eye damage or eye diseases. There are also artificial Uv rays from different types of lasers, fluorescent lights, and mercury-based lighting.
