Less is not always more!
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!

A secret tip I learned from Mama Mai:
In photo shoots, rather than moisturizer or body balm, use any SPF or sunscreen to lather up your skin. The protecting emollients act as a reflector to flash and result in a drop-dead JLo glow.

Lady GaGa is spilling the deets on how she keeps herself looking pretty.
Even though she goes to bed 7 days a week with makeup on, mom Cynthia Germanotta taught her before The Fame to wash her face with Ivory soap. It also doesn't hurt that she has good genes.
Another way Gagita keeps her skin looking young is applying sunblock, especially on her face. She explains: "I don’t like to tan my face because it’s bad for wrinkles."
Probably the most important beauty secret isn't something that can be bought. GaGa's final tip: "Just go with your gut. Whenever you try to be someone else, it’s boring."

We knew there had to be more to what she said!
Gisele Bundchen is once again having to do damage control, this time for calling sunscreen 'poison'.
Her publicist Amber Clapp explains:
"Gisele would never say not to use sunscreen because she has had family members who have had skin cancer. She simply stated that her all-natural skin-care line does not have SPF because there is not an all natural SPF available. When using sunscreens, she selects ones that are free of parabens, oxybenzone, PABA and retinyl palmitate."
And there you have it.

Don't expect Gisele Bundchen to appear in Marc Jacobs' "Proctect The Skin You're In" campaign because she refuses to use sunscreen with synthetic ingredients.
The supermodel said at the launch of her organic skincare line Sejaa: "I cannot put this poison on my skin. I do not use anything synthetic."
And surprise, surprise! Faster than you could say 'skin cancer', dermatologists leaped at the opportunity to condemn the supermodel's comment.
The head of Brazil's National Cancer Institute argued:
"Sunscreen prevents damage to the skin and is of fundamental importance for the prevention of cancer. This is not any poison, when a public person makes a statement like this, it creates confusion."
We have a feeling there's more to what Gisele had to say since her skincare line uses natural ingredients.
Besides, she's a model! Why would she want to damage her beautiful money making skin?

For those that are hitting up the beach and soaking up the rays and don't want to end up looking like a lobster you may want to invest in one of these.
The UVSunSense is a color changing bracelet that tells you when to re-apply your sunscreen. All you have to do is apply SPF 15 sunscreen or higher to the bracelet once you've finished lathering up yourself.
Once activated, the bracelet will turn purple and when it's time to go back for more sunscreen it'll be a dark brown.
Not a bad idea.
The bracelet will also turn a pink-ish color to warn you that you've had enough UV rays for the day.
However, UV exposure varies from person to person so don't completely rely on the bracelet to tell you when to go back for more sunscreen.
