Just one day in the sun can cause about 100,000 DNA defects in every exposed skin cell. And DNA is genetic information that is vital to the body.

If the skin’s DNA monitoring system decides that the damage to the cells is too great, it tells the cells to self-destruct. Therefore, after sunburn, we see redness, sometimes blisters, we experience pain.

Interestingly, DNA damage occurs even if you don’t sunbathe. So, even a simple walk to a stop or hanging laundry in the sun can cause damage.

But how long does it take for a person to recover from such damage? Cells need about 20-30 hours to restore at least half of the damage. Therefore, you need to wait a few days after sunburn.

News cannot be equated with a doctor’s prescription. Consult an expert before making a decision.
