Sun Induced Aging

This gentleman is 69 years old, but half of his face appears much older.  He had been a trucker for 28 years, and the left side of his face received more sunlight which resulted in premature aging.  Premature aging due to sun exposure is also called photoaging or dermatoheliosis. (link)
