As someone who tans rather than burns in the sun, I have always had a very laid-back attitude about sunscreen. I figured that if it didn’t hurt, there must not be any damage – but I was wrong! Take a look at the image above. Notice how different the two sides look? This is not due to an accident or a disorder. The difference is due to sun exposure while driving! After 28 years as a delivery truck driver, absorbing the sun’s UV rays on his left side every day, we can easily see the harsh effects of this man’s sun exposure. UVA rays can pass through window glass, so even if you’re not planning on spending the day outside, you might want to think about sunscreen or a hat during your summer road trips!
