Summers in India are all about sweat, dust and germs that overpower the skin and affect the health of the person. Even winter sunlight contains more UV rays, and your skin needs to be protected.
Balanced hydration levels and proper skin care routine is the only savior of this condition Sunscreen is the best savior that protects the skin from the damaging UVA and UVB rays of the sun during the hot summer months.
These rays can damage the skin by either tanning the skin or by leading to aging of the skin. These can produce unwanted fine lines, wrinkles and crow’s feet. The best way to keep the skin healthy is to use a sunscreen.
