Sunscreen Daily Turns Back the Hands of Aging

Sunscreens are common almost everywhere particularly in warmer climates, such as Southwest Florida, where this plastic surgeon practices.  
Now, there is bonafide research showing daily use of sunscreen can lessen wrinkles in skin.  Results of the study recently appeared in the Annals of Internal Medicine. 

This study involved 903 adults under the age of 55 living in Nambour Australia.  

All participants were given sunscreen of 15+ SPF.  Half used it daily and the other half were told to use it as you normally would.  Researchers took silicone impressions of the backs of the participants hands at the beginning of the experiment and after 4 ½ years.  

The results showed people instructed to apply sunscreen daily showed 24% less aging as measured by coarseness and fine lines.  There you have it!  Some concrete evidence that sun block helps prevent skin aging.
