Face of a 20 year old, body of a 60 year old?

The 80/20 rule is used all the time, and seems like a universal ratio that (somehow) can be used to attribute a mathematical equation to almost every relationship in the world. 

For example, in business they say things like 80% of your time is spent on 20% of your clients, and 80% of your profit comes from 20% of your clients. In social media, they say that 80% of your comments/interactions will come from 20% of your fan-base, and the equation can applied to such trivialities as 80% of the time you are wearing the same 20% of your wardrobe, etc., etc, etc. 

Since it is the 80/20 rule that is heard over and over, it was almost jarring to recently hear of the phenomenon called the 20/60 rule. 

At first I thought it must have been a typo, but then I read on to discover that the 20/60 situation is something actually occurring ALL the time. "20/60" refers to people-- female or male-- that have young, wrinkle-free faces, with bodies (hands, necks, and chests) that make them look decades older-- so that overall the face of someone in their 20s is on a body that looks at least 60. Certainly not a desirable combination...

It is great to be applying sunscreen daily to your face, but while your face is protected from the premature aging that comes with sun exposure, the rest of your body is left exposed. Skin experts across the world agree that it is vital to be diligent about applying sunscreen to the neck, hands, and any other body part that might be exposed to the sun throughout your daily activities (even for things as mundane as driving or a quick walk).

For easy all-over protection, Solise Sun Wash is a soap used in the shower that leaves behind a physical sunblock of SPF 15, or Eucerin makes a light-weight SPF 30 lotion called "Everyday Protection" that can be applied after the shower, is absorbed quickly.
