    I enjoy going to the beach so much, I live in South Beach and I try to go get a tan at least once a week. I’m a 38 year old man with some crows feet but nothing so horrible. I use some anti aging products just for the sake of it (skinceuticals) but as I said I go to the beach every weekend and get enough sun to have a very nice tan already and been up until now my aging is not as bad as you’d think. I do believe it’s better to live life and enjoy it the most then to be worrying about not getting wrinkles in your 50s and what not. When I am in my 50s I’ll be glad to have lived up. I sure do use proper protection as I know skin cancer is very real. But seriously everyone. Live up, use anti aging creams and eat well but don’t stop enjoying life just to prevent a couple wrinkles, or delay them a bit. We will all get them regardless.

    Wow! I didn’t know the fact about your neck and chest skin getting burnt faster than your face. It does make sense to think about it, when people go to the beach and their face is red, the chest area is far worse. The shoulder area is another area that gets burnt so easily too, to the extent that going to bed and touching the blankets is quite painful! Also, I’ve never thought about chemical peels for my neck and chest before. That is great, good to know! Thanks for the information!!!
