The importance of sunscreen can never be underestimated and if you fail to believe us, well, this image of a 92-year-old woman is clear proof.
You may have heard health experts warn against going in the sun without sunscreen. And now, an image of a 92-year-old female who chose to cover her face in sunscreen and not her neck is going viral.
The image is putting the consequences of skipping sunscreen on display and it’s scary, to say the least.
Many doctors claim this image is perfect evidence of what the sun’s damaging ultraviolet rays can end up doing to her skin. And that’s why it’s a clear reminder to act before it’s too late.
The picture was recently shared in the Journal of the European Academy of Dermatology and Venerology recently. It put the prolonged effects of exposure to the sun’s rays on display, if and when it’s not being protected.
The woman in the image can be seen to have a consistent history of using sunscreen on her face but she often neglected her neck for decades. The reason was simple, she felt it didn’t make any difference. But the images prove otherwise.
Her face appears so much smoother and clearer than her neck, in general, which clearly proves to have been exposed to harmful elements. And that’s exactly why it appears the way it does.
Dr. Christian Posch claimed sun cream is required to protect skin from disease and many don’t realize it until it’s too late.
While the process of aging can’t be stopped, it can definitely be slowed down through sunscreen, the doctor continued. And the day people use this image as an example to bring a change in their lives, he feels they will truly thank themselves.
