The combination of sunlight and pollution can have a negative impact on the skin. The rays from the sun are categorized into UVA and UVB rays. These rays cause damage in different ways. UVB rays are mostly responsible for causing sunburns, dark skin, freckles, and dark spots. UVA radiation penetrates farther into the skin than UVB rays. UVA rays are the leading cause of long term skin damage, aging and wrinkles, and a major contributor to skin cancer.
Protecting your skin from the harsh effects of the sun is important for reducing the effects of aging and skin cancer.
