Exposure to the strong ultraviolet rays from direct sunlight is one of the main causes of skin cancer. UV rays are not only present under the sun, they can infiltrate sheltered offices, homes and schools. UVA penetrate deep into the dermis, leading to early skin ageing, eye problems and affects the immune system negatively while UVB creates sunburns and excess melanin production. To avoid premature wrinkles and fine lines, remember to use a sunscreen to protect against the sun all year round!
