How does one identify their skin type?
It is always advisable to visit a skin care professional to understand your skin type. An expert diagnosis will reveal whether your skin is oily, sensitive, dry, acne-prone or a combination of two or more types. Basis this, use products that are specially formulated. Additionally, observe your skin on a day to day basis to understand how it reacts to skincare products.
How harmful can sun exposure be to skin?
The ultraviolet radiation emitted from the sun can be divided into three kinds of rays – UVA, UVB, and UVC. Out of these, UVC rays are the shortest rays and don’t reach the earth due to ozone absorption. It is the UVA and UVB rays that are the most damaging to skin. UVA rays account for 95% of the UV radiation that reaches the earth. They affect the top layer of the skin and can cause premature ageing; leading to visible effects such as wrinkles. UVB rays, on the other hand, can cause tanning, sunburn and damage to the DNA cells in as little as 15 minutes!
