CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV)- It seems like everybody is looking for the fountain of youth.
And doctors say over-the-counter products can help.
When 70-year-old Janice McEwen looks at the damage to her skin over the years, she is startled.
"This past year we found we had some squeamish cells," said Janice.
Dermatologist Ronea Harris explains to McEwen that sun damage has led to this problem.
Dr. Harris says that aside from avoiding the sun from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., purchasing the proper sunscreen and other beauty products is important.
But to keep your skin looking young and preventing serious skin conditions you need to take a close look at what's on the label.
She says the key is whether over-the-counter products are giving accurate information on their labels.
"They really offer a lot of promises however it takes time to deliver the promises that they are offering," said Dr. Harris.
