The first step to your beauty regime is to protect your skin from the sun. To do this, you need to wear your sunscreen everyday whether you are indoors or outdoors. The harmful UV rays of the sun can damage your skin badly. UV rays are present throughout the year so don’t assume that winters and monsoons are safe to step out without sunscreen. Application of sunscreen is a must, round the year.
