Is It Just Me or Do Male Celebs Turn Into Tan Mom as They Get Older?


Everyone knows that too much exposure to the sun is bad for the skin. It accelerates the aging process by producing wrinkles, sun spots, and blotchy, red-ish skin, which is why most women slather their faces in SPF lotions before leaving the house. But while women, especially celebrities, are burdened with the impossible task of looking 20-something forever, male stars are gladly basking in the sun without a care in the world. It appears celebrity men are free to age as they please, strutting down the red carpet with leathery, sun-scorched skin that rivals Tan Mom. Remember her? It honestly boggles the mind. Here's why Hollywood's aging men could benefit from a little sunscreen.
