The summer season is here and we while we get all excited about everything from fresh fruits, juices, fashion and more, the hot weather brings with it a host of skin issues, tanning and sunburn being one of the most prevalent ones. The harsh sun rays during the summer season can damage your skin and dampen the glow. They can burn your skin and reduce its elasticity.
