If you haven’t already put on sunscreen today, you’re about to!

Using an ultraviolet lens, people were actually able to see how damaged and aged their skin had become over time. Leveritt even shows some kids’ flawless faces to drive his point home.
Then, people slathered on the sunscreen and saw just how big of a difference it made!

There’s a British company out there called Superdrug that gives you a peek into your future. Well, your skin’s future.
The site has a burnometer app that allows you to see what you could look like in 5, 15 or 25 years if you don’t take care of your skin.
While it may seem like a dramatization, the results are actually based on research performed by the British Association of Dermatologists.

This is a huge hit to the tanning industry too because an estimated 70% of tanning salon patrons are Caucasian girls and women between the ages of 16 and 29. In fact, 2.3 million of the industry's active customer base is under the age of 18.
