Exposure to sunlight causes tan. Sun rays have harmful ultraviolet (UV) radiation and exposure to this radiation stimulates the skin to produce melanin which is a skin pigment that gives colour to the skin, hair and eyes. Then effect of increased production of melanin causes the skin to become dark within 48 hours. Enhanced melanin production protects the skin from damage as melanin contains sun protection factor from 2 to 4, although SPF 15 is at least required to protect the skin from harmful UV radiation. Preventative measures need to be taken before exposing yourself to direct sunlight. Although tan does not cause any discomfort, it is advisable to remove the tan as you are at increased risk of developing skin cancer if you have a tan.
