i read that if the sun didn't exist/cause skin wrinkling than we wouldn't age until like 80. im 14 and if i start using really good sunblock (whats the difference between this and sunscreen?) and like never go out in the sun will i not get wrinkles until im really old? im really concerned about gettin wrinkles, and i think that if i barely go out in the sun and if i do ill wear a really good sunblock than maybe i won't get wrinkles for a while is this true?

From my regimen log:

What's the difference between sunscreen and sunblock?

Sunscreens absorb the UV rays and prevent penetration through the skin (examples are parsol, benzophenones, avobenzone, oxybenzone).

Sunblocks create a barrier that reflects UV light (examples are zinc oxide, titanium dioxide).

Sunblock for sure!

The theory behind the non-effectiveness and potentionally dangerous effects of sunscreens is that it is absorbed into your skin, yadda yadda yadda, and it becomes a free-radical generator. Free radicals lead to quicker aging. Which is why antioxidants are so important to us.

In any case...read the links. They'll clairify it much more than I just have. lol
