It's very painful when you get sunburn, but it's not just the pain that can hurt you ~ there are other harmful things too! The reason why some people get sunburn is because the Ultra Violet rays from the sun hit your skin and the skin cells literally burn. Sun Burn hurts because like anything that is burned, is burned to a crisp and your skin gets tight and hard to move. People who are fair-skinned or have light features mostly get burned worse then others because the color of their skin is so light that the UV rays have more of an affect on it.

Although every one knows that wearing sunscreen is the best way to protect you from sunburn, you should also wear a hat, and sunglasses to protect you from the harmful rays of the sun, especially at midday when the sun is at its highest and hottest.
The sun's rays are so strong they can cause serious damage to your skin. Some affects are wrinkling, aging skin, pigment changes, immune problems, and pre cancerous skin disorders, skin cancer, including melanoma. All of these things are cause by simple sunburn! Clouds don't protect you from sunburn you are vulnerable for sunburn all year around, even in the winter months.
Snow, sand, high altitude, and water make the risk of sunburn and skin damage even worse. Wearing the color white prevents sunburn by reflecting the light back away from your skin.. The best way to protect you in the colder months is by wearing waterproof sunscreen, with an SPF 15 or higher and reapplies every 30 minutes.

If you spot a spot or freckle on your body that doesn't look right contact your local doctor or dermatologist. Studies show that the childhood sun exposure that causes sunburn can be an important role in the cause of non-melanoma skin cancer. In the first 18 years of your life you can lessen the risk of getting a non-melanoma cancer. Remember, most people with light skin, freckles, and light hair, are at a greater risk then others, so take notice to the moles and figures on your body. Keep an eye on moles or marks that change color, shape, or size. The best advice to reduce your risk of sunburn is to stay out of the direct sunlight and always wear skin protection when you are outdoors.
