What happens to your skin while exposure to sun light?
While you expose your skin to sun light without protection, the damaged pigment cells will leak pigment into the deeper layers of your skin. Not only it causes discolouration, the sun’s heat will also dry your skin out. Stripping it from it’s natural oils, that were meant to keep your skin moisturised. On top of that the sun’s UV ( ultraviolet) radiation can burn your skin and cause long term changes in your skin’s structure.
