Many skin conditions are due to an over-exposure to Ultraviolet light.

Ultraviolet rays consist of both UVB and UVA wavelengths; while UVB rays are most damaging, causing sunburn and skin cancer, you should also be concerned with the effects of UVA rays on your skin. Recently, scentists have found UVA to be responsible for photoaging (the premature aging or deep wrinkling of your skin) and a contributing factor in skin cancer.
