We’ve all heard of a trucker’s tan – the dark, damaged skin most truck drivers get from hours and hours of driving with the sun blaring down on them.
Now a 69-year-old truck driver has shared what 28 years of driving in the sun really does to your skin.
A photo of the man’s face shows that one side of his face (the one that copped most of the sun exposure) has dramatically aged and he has developed thick, wrinkling skin.
The other side of his face looks remarkably different – it’s more youthful, less wrinkled.
In their paper, the researchers from Northwestern University said the man had a “history of gradual, asymptomatic thickening and wrinkling of the skin on the left side of his face”.
