UVB, the main cause of skin reddening and sunburn, damages the skin’s superficial epidermal layer. UVB rays can burn your skin all year round, especially at high altitudes and reflective surfaces, such as water, sand and concrete, where these rays bounce back at 80 percent, and in so doing, hit your skin twice. UVC rays are the most destructive, but these rays are stopped by the Ozone layer.
Regular use of sunscreen can prevent aging, and reduce skin damage.
