Mcjr20 saidYeah.. And sunscreen blocks Vitamin D synthesis as well.
You can have your vitamin D levels checked by a doctor, and if they're low you can take a supplement. Getting vitamin D from the sun isn't worth it. You don't want to have wrinkles when you're 30, especially since your peers who avoid the sun will be wrinkle free.
I agree that the sun can be damaging if you sunbath in excess. But really, moderation is the key to everything.
The sun can be incredibly healing if you get 20-30 minutes of pure sunshine, after that, then just hide in the shade or something.
Actually, you're wrong. People with minimal daily sun exposure have 25% more wrinkles than those who use sunscreen everyday. I'm 33, and people tell me I look like I'm in my 20s all the time. Not so for my peers who didn't wear sunscreen. My bff who is blond, like you, is two years younger than me, and literally everyone thinks he's a great deal older than me. It's not genetics either, as our parents look about the same.
Don't you think you're exaggerating a bit? I personally don't care if I have a few wrinkles ( I'm not talking about like.. a lot of wrinkles but like 1-2 fine lines or something like that) As long as I'm healthy I'm good.
Besides, what you describe as a result of minimal sun exposure sounds more like people who have been tanning for far longer than they should have.
The sun isn't the horrible evil monster that people from other companies make it sound like. It has a lot of benefits if you as I said, only expose yourself in moderation or very little that is. The only thing you really care about is skin that starts to sag and gets all wrinkly but you forget that the sun has benefits as well.
On a side note, there's a lot of chemicals in most people's sunscreen. And that isn't healthier for you than the sun is.
You'll feel differently about wrinkles in a few years, especially as a model. People will treat you differently, regardless of how you feel about yourself. That's just the world we live in. The fact is, if you look at guys like me or alphatrigger you can tell we've avoided the sun. As for the chemicals in sunscreen, I'm not sure what effect they might have down the line, but, if it's a damned if you do, damned if you don't scenario, I'd rather do, because the results are stunning.
That may be, but I think it depends a lot where you live. I mean I live in Germany, it's pretty close to Scandinavia which is the nordic countries. now, I live in Hamburg which is close to the border of Denmark and I can tell you that where I live, I get moderate-to-little sun exposure during Autumn, Winter and Spring while it's not as bad during the summer as it is in Texas or Australia. If I lived in those two locations for example, I would probably also use sunscreen on my face since I'm a blond and I can burn up quite well, faster than my other friends who are brunettes and are slightly darker than me. But I don't live in a location where the majority of people uses sunscreen because.. The sun really isn't that powerful enough here to use it. So I don't have the same problem as you may do. ( I don't know where you live)
But I think people in general are too quick to judge things for example the sun. Sure, if you continue to expose yourself to the sun you will get wrinkles but again. Moderation. I bet you could find tons of studies and articles about how healing the sun is. But as any other things, if you overdo it, the results won't be pretty.
