This is a perfect example of what can happen to YOU if you don't wear sunscreen!

The 69-year-old man (above) suffers from dermatoheliosis or photodamaged skin, but only on one side of his face.

Why? It turns out he was a delivery driver for 28 years and only caught rays on the left side of his face through his truck's window.

According to medical experts, the "Ultraviolet A (UVA) rays transmit through window glass, penetrating the epidermis and upper layers of dermis".

With that said: Wearing sunscreen can protect you from all those evil UVA and UVB rays that can cause your skin to thicken, lose it's elasticity, and age quicker!

So next time you're in the sun, make sure you put on sunblock! We wouldn't want you to flaw!
