If you have fair coloured skin, there is a very good chance you will burn very easily in the sun. You will also be more prone to irreversible skin damage by the sun, if you don’t take the proper precautions.
Freckles, sun spots, leathery skin, and early onset of wrinkles, are the least of worries for those with lighter skin. The big danger is skin cancer in its many forms. It can be triggered but very few exposures to damaging ultraviolet light, it does show up immediately and that’s what makes it dangerous. Thinking you can run the gauntlet but getting a tan and over doing it, on the odd occasion catches up with you fast.
Always be smart in the sun slip on a shirt, slop on sunscreen, and slap on a hat. Always!!!!
