How the Sun Sees You

Daily sunscreen application is one of those rules often preached but commonly abandoned. Its resulting effects, while not immediately visible to the naked eye, can be drastic. Artist Thomas Leveritt took to the streets of Manhattan with a UV light to show passerby the underlying damage to their skin, and the resulting video is enough to keep you reapplying SPF for life. Not surprisingly, children and those with naturally darker complexions showed little to no signs of sun damage, while others were shocked to find a host of previously undetected signs of skin aging. Watch the video above to see how sunscreen stood to the test!
