WHY SUNSCREEN IS SO IMPORTANT
Sunscreen acts like a thin bulletproof vest, stopping UV rays before they can reach your skin and cause damage. It contains organic molecules that absorb UV rays, as well as inorganic pigments that absorb, scatter and reflect UV rays. So sunscreen reflects or scatters light away to prevent it reaching your skin.
But remember, sunscreen isn’t enough to protect you from the harmful rays of the sun. It’s also best to always wear a hat, sunglasses and loose-fitting, long-sleeved clothing, and stay in the shade as much as possible.
