Yes the sun damages skin causing aging, but my question has been does the sun really cause the cancer, or do the chemicals from the sunscreen and other cosmetics and lotions cause cancer? I have my theories. What are yours? And while you are thinking about it, here is a nice place to read for more information.
Why do you suppose that with so many more products available, and so much more attention paid to this topic, skin cancer is still on the rise?
So, have fun in the sun and be careful!
