I just came across this photo today of a truck driver who exposed only half of his face to sunlight over the years. The results are pretty unbelievable. 



Clearly- you can see the difference. Are you sunscreen wearers?

Wow! I better start wearing sunscreen! I normally don't because I cannot stand the smell of sunscreen lotions but I would rather tolerate the scent than this happening! Thank you for the wake up call :)

Yikes!

That's a huge difference. I'm actually someone who doesn't wear sunscreen much, and I really should start. This picture will definitely help push me in the right direction!

I've only recently started wearing sunscreen since having my kids, this year we've started wearing SPF 100!! Bought it in Texas works great!

Everyone should know UV rays can penetrate windows and clouds, so even if you're in your car on an overcast day, you can still get sun damage.

There's also a common misconception that those with dark skin can't get skin cancer.. which is completely untrue. EVERYONE should use sunscreen!

This would actually be a great advertisement campaign to encourage the use of sunscreen from a very early age!

What a wake up for some people, I'm sure!
I wear sunscreen all the time but can't seem to convince my boyfriend or mother to.
Maybe I should show them this!
