The ABCs of Anti-Aging
Everything you need to know about fighting wrinkles, saggy skin, dark spots and other signs of aging
Read the label on your sunscreen as if the life of your skin depends on it -- because it does. "Not every sunscreen offers protection from both UVA and UVB rays," says Dr. Lancer. UVB rays are the ones most likely to cause sunburn, but UVA rays are known to contribute heavily to photo aging and the development of skin cancer, so it's important to protect your skin from both. You know the drill: Apply a sunscreen SPF 30 or higher 30 minutes before you go outside, and reapply every three hours. To maximize your sun protection regimen, Dr. Lancer recommends using sunscreen with an SPF of 20 or higher on lips, and wearing sunglasses to cut back on squinting, which causes crow's feet and frown lines.
