How many times do you have to beg your kids to use sunscreen? I know that my teen agers nod their heads but hate my pestering them to apply it during the summer.  But the truth is it makes a difference! I am happy to have read that a new study can back this up with real research! In fact, daily use of sunscreen has been shown to significantly slow the aging of skin caused by the sun’s ultraviolet rays. The study showed that when adults used broad spectrum sunscreen, which protects against both ultraviolet B and ultraviolet A rays, they were less likely to show increased wrinkling over a four-and-a-half-year period than adults who used sunscreen less often.  So don’t give up on your kids, or on yourselves, it is really important to protect our skin with sunscreen!
