This ex-Gilmore Girl is an example of perhaps the most important lesson of all: the first rule of summer skin care is sunscreen. See how fair her skin is? You can bet she knows the golden rule of SPF. Yes, a sun tan may look amazing in the short term; but in the long term those UV rays will do more damage than you can ever dream. We’re talking DNA damage, collagen damage, wrinkles and dark spots—you get it. So wear a sunscreen with at least SPF 15 every day.
