Actinic Keratosis (AK)

Ewww, Actinic Keratosis and wrinkles. I wish I stayed out of the sun when I was a kid. When you're young you're living life in the moment. I know it's tough not to but you will grow older and all of what you did to your body will catch up with you and it sucks. Consider this a public service announcement.

enjoy life and don't worry about how you look.

Had to look it up

Now I know what that condition is called.

Yes, sun overexposure shows up later in life. I should look like an old man’s shoe considering all the tanning I did in my 20s, and all the outdoor time in my 30s. I actually hated the sun as a kid and stayed in the shade. It felt like prickly burning heat on my skin. Maybe that was a good thing. I’ve been on a regular SPF regime in my 40s and some dermatologist meds. These have reversed the effects of the bad habits of early adulthood. Still, I love the sun. But it’s harmful. Parasols should come back in vogue. The most sun damaged people I ever saw was in San Diego.

I’m feeling exactly the same way. I’ve started warning every younger person I know that they WILL care how they look when they get older! I remember thinking that it was never going to happen to me too, just like they do. But it did and I hate it!!

Australia. Some of the oldest 20 or 30 somethings I've ever seen.

isn't a disease. Some people don't get the privilege. Your priorities are messed up.

Actinic Keratosis could be a pre-curser to skin cancer. It needs to watched by a doctor.
