Sometimes we cannot tolerate the direct sun beams and causing sun burns.Sun burns are burns caused by exposing your body to too much ultra violet light from the sun rays causing sunburn and wrinkles. Sometimes it lead to skin cancer. Limited exposure ultraviolet rays produces beneficial vitamin D when skin exposed to ultraviolet light. It speed up the production of melanin. Melanin give protection and normal colour to the skin. Too much malanin causes the darker colour of a tan. A tan means body's first line of protection against sunburn and damage of skin. But most people can't produce enough to protect to skin means the skin can't protect itself causing sunbrun. The southern United States, equator regions and places with high altitudes are generally having higher risk of sunburn than the other places. Certain antibiotics and birthcontrol pills can also make your skin more sensitive to the sun.
