People think that crinkly skin, liver spots and wrinkles are all part of normal aging. They’re not-they’re just signs of sun damage. The most beautiful women in my practice have the “secret” of using sunscreen and big, beautiful hats to protect their face. We would all do well to copy their example.
The American Academy of Dermatology has changed its recommendation and now calls for a minimum SPF (sun protection factor) of 30, so for daily use a sunscreen with SPF 30 is fine. Remember, sun damage is cumulative; even ten minutes of exposure a day over the course of a lifetime is enough is to cause major problems.
