When I’m sitting in my living room at midnight eating ice cream right out of the carton in the dark, the LAST thing on my mind is, “Uh oh, I’d better watch out for getting sunburned.” But here ya go . . .
According to a new study out of the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, people who eat late night snacks are much more likely to get SUNBURNED.
Why? They found when you eat at strange times, it messes up your body’s internal clock. Then, during the daytime, your skin doesn’t produce as much of an enzyme that protects you against the sun’s UV rays, so you get sunburned easier. (Science Daily)
