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.
