Sun care products are generally known to be used for fighting damaging effects of sun exposure.

Sun protection products work as a shield for the skin, creating a layer on the skin which reflects these rays from the surface of the skin, restricting them from penetrating. These include lotions, sprays, gels and other topical products. These are also available with additional benefits such as anti-ageing components, fragrances, vitamins, glittery effects and rapid-drying effects.
