Original Photo — What sun damage can do to you skin



Confused whether it’s original or not? Don’t be. It’s as real as they get. 

Published in The New England Journal of Medicine last year, the photo shows a 69 year old man who drove a truck for 28 years. His left side was exposed to the sun’s UV rays that caused his skin to thicken and wrinkle. 

This person should be the poster head for every campaign to raise awareness about exposure to harmful ultraviolet rays over an extended period.

So don’t forget to slap on some SPF next time you head out the door!
