A viral image highlighting the visible impact of UV rays serves as a crucial reminder to apply SPF not only to your face but also down your neck. A dermatologist based in New York recently shared a compelling photograph on Twitter, showcasing a 92-year-old woman who constantly used SPF moisturisers on her face but neglected her neck over the past four decades. Since the tweet’s posting on September 1, it has garnered over 236,000 likes and 42,000 retweets, sparking conversations about the significance of SPF.
Examining the close-up picture, a stark contrast is evident between the areas where SPF was applied to the woman’s face and the unprotected neck. Notably, the neck displays visible signs of sun damage, emphasising the importance of consistent use of SPF, even in the winter.
