UV Rays

Being exposed to ultraviolet radiation puts you at risk for many different skin cancers. The most common way to obtain UV rays is by tanning beds. They are at greater risk than people would don’t use tanning beds. UV rays damage the DNA of skin cell which is damaging to the skin growth. This is also what can cause premature wrinkles, skin damage and cancer. By being exposed to these ultraviolet lights it can speed up the aging process of skin since the light destroys the top layer of skin and can cause liver spots and can have an affect on how soon you get wrinkles.
