Sunlight is made up of damaging UVA and UVB rays. 

The sunlight that reaches us comprises two harmful rays: long-wave ultraviolet A (UVA) and short-wave ultraviolet B (UVB). UVA rays penetrate deep into the dermis, the skin’s thickest layer.

Unprotected exposure can lead to premature skin aging and wrinkling (photoaging) and suppress the immune system. UVB rays will usually burn the superficial layers of your skin. It plays a crucial role in the development of skin cancer. UVB rays' intensity varies by season, location, and time of day, with 10 to 14 being the peak hours. Sunburned skin doesn’t just feel awful; it can cause permanent damage over time.
