Over exposure to UVB rays will result in red, sunburnt and skin darkening while constant exposure to UVA rays weakens the elasticity of the skin and causes the outer layer of the skin to thicken, dry and become leathery.
After a while, skin starts to sag and deep wrinkles would form. Therefore, sun protection when you are going for long hours of outdoor activities is necessary to maintain healthy looking skin.
