Too much sun may only show redness, peeling and maybe even blistering on the surface of your skin.  The damage caused is deeper than the eye can see.  The sun spectrum contains both UVA and UVB.  The UVB rays cause damage on the surface. The UVA causes deeper damage. The more the skin is exposed to UV rays, the more damaged the skin DNA becomes which may lead to skin cancer.  Most of such damage happens by age 18 but what you do as an adult still counts.  The continued accumulation of sun damage steadily increases the risk of skin cancer.  Years ago, I usually saw patients with their first skin cancers in their late 30s.  Now I see young adults in their 20s with skin cancers, usually those who have deliberately continued tanning in tanning beds or prolonged outdoor sun exposure.  THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS A HEALTHY TAN !!
