Why aged people should avoid prolonged sun exposure?
risk of age-related skin conditions
Aged people are more susceptible to the damaging effects of the sun, including skin damage and skin cancer. The skin of aged people is thinner and less elastic than the skin of younger people, which makes it more vulnerable to damage from the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) rays. Prolonged sun exposure can also increase the risk of other age-related skin conditions, such as age spots and wrinkles.
Additionally, aged people are more likely to have medical conditions that can make their skin more sensitive to the sun, such as lupus and diabetes. For these reasons, it is important for aged people to avoid prolonged sun exposure and take steps to protect their skin from the sun.
