Sun damage causes premature skin aging and skin cancers
If you were so fortunate to grow up in California, you've been getting a heavy dose of UVA and UVB sun rays your entire life. Tan addicts from the 1960's and 70's even concocted their own personalized frying oil made of baby oil and iodine.
You "cooked" your skin and its DNA and now the price to pay is dark spots, discoloration, actinic keratoses (rough spots that can be skin cancer if they're ignored) and an array of wrinkle depths that shout "help me!" Top that off with dry climate induced dehydration and no wonder your skin can sometimes feels and looks like crunched sandpaper.
Anyone can develop skin cancer regardless of skin color or ethnicity. Moles and melanoma can develop anywhere on your body including the scalp, back and even between your toes.
