Dermatologists say there are many benefits of using sunscreen
Sunscreens have significantly developed over the years and have been proven to help reduce the risk of skin cancers. While sunscreen is on the skin it stops the UV rays before it penetrates the skin and inflicts damage. These rays are absorbed, scattered and reflected away from the skin. The use of sunscreen also acts as a moisturizer and can help regulate the natural state of the skin and reduces premature aging.
