Chronic sun exposure can result in skin developing an elastic quality, which gives it a yellowish chicken skin look. Mottled, darker patches of pigmentation are signs of sun and age spots.
To prevent age or sun spots, it is recommended to use a minimum of SPF 30 every day, whether you are going to be exposed to a significant amount of sun or not.
