The most damage to our skin is caused by excess exposure to the sun (UV rays) which causes deep wrinkles, dry, rough skin, spots and makes the skin vulnerable to cancer and skin tumors. Besides sun, even dryness due to lack of moisture in skin or natural aging process leads to the wrinkling of skin. It deprives your skin of its youthfulness and glamour.
