Sunscreens can help. Sunburn occurs when strong UV rays harm cells in the skin’s outermost layer, the epidermis. Blood vessels in deeper layers dilate, turning the skin red: a sunburn. Regular exposure causes the epidermis to produce more melanin pigment in an attempt to absorb UV rays. If enough melanin accumulates, the skin darkens: a tan. Dark-skinned people have more melanin than light-skinned people and so don’t burn as readily. Active chemicals in sunscreen also filter UV rays, slowing injury and thus the sunburn and tanning reactions.
