Sunscreen Studies Show That Teens Are Too Cool For Cancer, But Too Superficial For Wrinkles

Sunscreen Studies Show That Teens Are Too Cool For Cancer, But Too Superficial For Wrinkles

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.

Dovima With Peals, Richard Avedon.

I really like this picture, but it also makes me a bit sad. Dovima is my favorite model – mostly because she loved comic books, science fiction and was generally kind of a nerdy oddball. She was one of those people who seemingly had a glorious youth only to have an obscure end (she ended up working as a restaurant hostess). Of course, she might have been quite happy doing that. But still. Surely it must have been a bit difficult to go from capering in a ballgown among the elephants to telling people it was going to be a twenty minute wait. In this picture you can see the moles and crows feet and it’s clear that she’s no longer at the height of her beauty – but the expression on her face is still so priceless that you can see why Avedon would always consider her the greatest aristocratic beauty of her day.
