Sun damage can cause premature aging, wrinkles and skin cancer. Sunlight may be one of the environmental agents promoting the appearance of BCCs in Gorlin Syndrome.
Whatever your age, the best way to enjoy the sun safely and protect your skin from sunburn is to use a combination of shade, clothing and sunscreen. Children and teenagers might need a reminder or a helping hand, but setting a good example yourself is a great way to help them learn and get into good habits.
