Sunscreen use. Sunbather applying sunscreen to her legs as she lies on a beach. When sunbathing, sunscreens should be applied to protect the skin from the effects of ultraviolet radiation present in the sunlight. Repeated overexposure to the sun causes premature ageing and may also increase the risk of skin cancer. Most sunscreens protect the skin by absorbing the ultraviolet radiation. The typical compound used is para-aminobenzoic acid (PABA). Other sunscreens use compounds such as titanium dioxide and work by reflecting the Sun's rays.
