Whenever I go back home, I notice a huge pile of magazines I’ve collected as a kid through my teens, from the late ’90s and through the ’00s. From issues of Teen People featuring Justin Timberlake, Destiny’s Child, and Britney Spears to GL before they started putting celebrities on the covers to the short lived (but awesome) Elle Girl that dared its readers to be different.

A new study recently published in The Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology is suggesting that teenagers are more concerned with what they look like than whether or not they get cancer. Uhhh-doyyyy. I’m not a doctor, but I was a teenager just a few years ago and I’m pretty sure that the part of the brain that gives any fucks about real threats of mortality is not even close to being developed in teenage years, though the part of the brain that wants to stay young and beautiful forever is at full force.
