Sunburn is caused due to overexposure of body parts to the harmful ultraviolet rays, which leads to inflammation of the skin. It is obvious that people who visit beaches often also get sunburns very frequently. People who sunbathe and deliberately work on getting a tan on their skins have a high risk of sunburn.
