Next up for discussion in our “Why is Noni So Special” series is noni as a natural sunburn treatment.
Being exposed to sunlight is good and bad for the body. Exposure to UV light from the sun helps the body make its own Vitamin D (which is good), but too much sunlight can result in a sunburn damaging the DNA in your skin cells (which is bad). When the sun damages the DNA of your skin cells, it can put you at higher risk for these types of cancer:
- Basal-cell carcinoma
- Squamous-cell carcinoma
Did you know? If you get sunburned 5 times in your life, your risk of melanoma doubles!
