Those of us in our fifties or sixties grew up without being fully aware of all the harmful long-term effects of sun exposure. Often, we spent all day laying by the pool without any protection, and many of us even used tanning or baby oil to achieve a deep, lasting tan. Sun exposure causes most of the skin changes that we think of as a normal part of aging. Over time, the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) light damages the fibers in the skin called elastin. When these fibers break down, the skin begins to sag, stretch, and lose its ability to go back into place after stretching, causing wrinkles. The flat brown and black spots that occur due to exposure to the sun are called age spots or sun spots. Sun damage may also present in the way of increased visible vascularity in the skin including general redness or visible small vessels, in addition to a rough skin texture or dull-looking skin.
