The depletion of the ozone layer has increased our risk of sun damage from harmful UV rays. It Helps Maintain an Even Skin Tone: Sunscreen helps prevent discoloration and dark spots from sun damage, helping you maintain a smoother and more even skin tone.

This review concludes damaging and harmful effects of UV rays, types of UV radiations along with brief information on role of sunscreen and advantages of various herbal remedies as sunscreen.
