Fountain of youth

Ok, ok, so maybe it’s not the actual “fountain of youth”, but recent research has highlighted that daily sunscreen use can slow the signs of aging. For reals. The recent Annals of Internal Medicine study demonstrated that study participants (adults younger than 55) who used sunscreen daily showed no detectable increase in skin aging after 4.5 years. As another plug for daily sunscreen use, the study showed that skin aging from baseline to the end of the trial was 24% less in the daily sunscreen group compared to a group of adults using sunscreen at their discretion. As with most data, additional research should be done to further investigate results, but in the meantime if you are looking to maintain those youthful good looks, try adding sunscreen or moisturizer with sunscreen into your daily routine and make it a habit.
See you in the shade!
