Sunscreen, Anyone?

If you haven't seen this insanely truth-telling photo of the sun-exposed truck driver, listen up! The New England Journal of Medicine (NEJM) published an article back in April of a 69 year old man with gradual thickening and wrinkling of the left side of his face. Turns out, that after begin a truck driver for a long time, the sun was damaging his skin right through the glass of the window for all of those years. If this photo is not a wake-up call, I don't know what is!
My Daily Sunscreen..:)

Not to mention the obvious physical damage, this gentleman now has a skin condition that has pre-exposed him to skin cancer. Please...I'll say it AGAIN...stay out of the sun and WEAR sunscreen! It doesn't matter is you are white, black, yellow, purple or green...EVERYONE can get skin cancer!

If you must, print this photo and hang it up next to your mirror to remind you every morning to put on your sunscreen..:)

Just incase you were wondering, I use a moisturizer/sunscreen combo by can find it here...and it is fantastic!
