It is no secret that direct, unprotected sunlight exposure plays a major role in prematurely aging our skin. The sun emits three different wavelengths of Ultraviolet (UV) light, UVA, UVB and UVC, all of which are absorbed into the skin. In the short-run, exposure to each of these types of rays causes tanning, freckles and mole development, and sunburns. In the long-term, UV exposure can manifest as skin cancer, hyperpigmentation or melasma (skin discoloration), blood vessel dilation, skin dullness, and wrinkle development.
