A sunburn occurs when too many thymine crosslinks occur to repair and the skin cells, leading to the skin becoming painful and dying to leave dead skin cells. Thymine dimers are the reason for melanoma formation, tumors and skin cancer. Reducing sun exposure, using Vitamin C Serum and covering up when in the sun can help to reduce thymine dimers. Ferulic Acid found in the popular SkinCeuticals CE Ferulic aids in repairing thymine dimers.
