SUNSCREENS protect your skin from the harmful effects of the sun and help to prevent sunburn. There are 2 different kinds of sunscreens called ‘physical sunscreens’ and ‘chemical sunscreens.’ Physical sunscreens reflect the sun’s UV radiation. Chemical sunscreens absorb the sun’s UV radiation. All physical sunscreens give UVA and UVB protection. All chemical sunscreens give UVB protection. Some chemical sunscreens give both UVA and UVB protection. Limiting the amount of time you spend in the sun and using sunscreens can help prevent wrinkles and skin damage, such as skin cancer.
