Short term skin damage is caused by UVB rays which are high intensity rays absorbed at the skin’s surface and long term skin damage is caused by lower intensity UVA rays which penetrate the skin more deeply and contribute to those dreaded wrinkles, acceleration of aging skin and even skin cancer.
While suncreens offer help, they often contain toxic ingredients such as oxybenzone and methoxycinnamate that you don't want on your skin. Nothing other than sun-blocking clothing and zinc will completely eliminate sun rays from penetrating your skin and in actuality you want to expose your skin in moderation to the sun because the sun's ultra violet rays create Vitamin D which is essential in supporting:
the immune system
protection against dementia
the healing effects of skin disorders (ironically) such as psoriasis, acne, eczema and fungal infections of the skin.
Since sunshine is one of the joys of life and compels us all to go out and "play" it is best to encourage your body's natural defenses with the antioxidant power of vitamin C. Exposure to the sun rapidly depletes our skin of vitamin C and breaks down collagen so a consistent and sufficient supply of vitamin C throughout your day, can help protect your skin and support collagen production!
How Much Vitamin C Is Enough?
"If you start to get the rumble “down there” in your gut, that’s the point. That’s called loose stool. At this level, you’re at oral saturation and that’s where Vitamin C has its therapeutic benefit.
If you’re healthy, 15,000 mg a day is great. If you’re sick as a dog, then take more.
