Awareness was lacking in the old days regarding the importance of sun protection. Kids played and did sports in full sunlight almost all day long, without any sunscreen. As a result, the effects may cause a breakdown of collagen in our skin and the damage to appear later in life. People in the their 30s, 40s and up, may see an increase in dark spots, uneven skin tone, and deep (premature) wrinkles. It's not too late to minimize the risk!
Remember, it is U.V. that causes wrinkles in most cases...not aging! We CAN age well and take steps to maintain healthy skin and body.
Kids: Sunscreen in the morning before school and outside activities! Re-apply as needed.
Adults: Moisturizer or a sunblock with a minimum of SPF-15 (Makeup may have sunscreen, as well). Extended sun exposure requires an SPF of 30 or higher. Hats and protective clothing are best!
Get an ANNUAL skin check by a Board Certified Dermatologist. If you have a sketchy U.V. history, you would do well to take that first step and get a skin check-up!
