7 Ways to Prevent Sun Damage

1. Wear Sunscreen Everyday
About 80 percent of the average person's lifetime sun exposure is incidental—which means it occurs during daily activities, not lying on the beach. If you're planning on being out in the sun for longer than 15 minutes, make sure to use a sunscreen with SPF 30. If you use a moisturizer, save a step and use a moisturizer with SPF.

2. Protect Your Eyes
One of the first areas to show signs of aging, the skin around the eyes needs extra hydration even if the rest of your face doesn't. Sunglasses help shield the skin around your eyes from skin-aging UV rays. Opt for a pair clearly labeled to block 99 percent of UV rays. Wider lenses best protect the delicate skin around your eyes.

3. Moisturize Your Lips—They Age Too!
The truth is that most of us neglect our thin-skinned lips when it comes to the sun's rays—leaving our lips particularly vulnerable to painful sunburns and the lip lines and wrinkles associated with aging. Remember to always apply (and reapply at least every hour) a lip-protection balm.
