Artist Thomas Leveritt set up a ultraviolet camera and viewing monitor in Brooklyn’s Prospect Park to show people what their skin looks like in ultraviolet light. This is “how the sun sees you.” The revealed freckles and lurking age spots are the not-yet-visible results of skin damage from sun exposure.
The real magic (and science!) of this video happens when we see what sunscreen looks like in UV light. Like a visible forcefield of UV-blocking black cream, it’s an impressive demonstration of how sunscreen protects our skin from the sun’s damaging rays, and why it’s important to wear it daily.
Scary stuff! Personally I’ve started embracing the pale, just hope the rest of the world catches up and it becomes more trendy than tanned skin!
After several scares and a surgery to remove a cancerous mole I finally broke up with the tanning bed! This video just confirms my decision to do so. I’m embracing tinted lotions and if I venture to the beach I make sure my entire body is protected. I hope my skin thanks me twenty years from now!
I have had my face shown in a UV light box, they have them in sk:n clinics and they show where you have any sun damage, make sure you put sun cream behind your ears if you wear you hair up too!
Wow, this is really incredible. Thank you for sharing! I’ve already passed along to several friends and family!
Thank you for sharing brilliant use clear zinc oxide everyone!It WORKS!
I hate tanning. I think white or natural skin is so much beautiful, and you really avoid any skin irritation, allergy or imperfections.
Lots of love, xx
Amazing video!Really inspiring!
After seeing the video, I am sure that I will wear sunscreen everyday from now on.
