Safeguard Your Skin from the Sun

It’s never too late—in the season, or in your life— to start protecting your skin from the sun’s harmful ultraviolet rays. Use sunscreen every day and wear sunglasses and a broad-brimmed hat whenever possible. “The single thing that ages the skin more than anything else is ultraviolet light, which damages DNA and breaks down collagen [the fibers that keep skin firm],” explains Mary P. Lupo, M.D., a dermatology professor at Tulane University in New Orleans. “The way I see it is: You can’t reverse a freight train until you first stop it.” Once you start protecting your skin you can reverse the damage that’s occurred.
