I came across this article a few days ago, and it’s had me in a state of panic since then. I’m aware of the adverse effects the sun/UVA rays have on your skin, but this photo?….it elevated my fears to new heights.
Can you say, “a picture is worth a thousand words?”

The sun has turned truck driver Bill McElligott into the man with two faces.
The right side of his face looks like a healthy 69-year-old’s. The left side, the one exposed to the sun for 28 years, looks 20 years older.
McElligott drove a unairconditioned milk delivery truck to stores and gas stations in Chicago for 28 years on a nine-hour route during the day.
It wasn’t until his grandchildren a few years ago started asking why part of grandpa’s face was creased and full of bumps and broken veins that he went to a dermatologist.
Ultraviolet A (UVA) rays transmit through window glass, penetrating the top layers of the skin, dermatologist Dr. Jennifer R.S. Gordon wrote in the New England Journal of Medicine. She had treated McElligott three years ago and discovered he had a dramatic case of unilateral dermatoheliosis: One side of his face was ravaged by the sun, the other wasn’t.
Yikes! Pass me the sunscreen!!
Does this mean no more of this?? Say it ain’t so!
Have a wonderful weekend folks!!
