Your eyes truly are the windows to your soul, and it's worth investing in the right sunglasses to protect them, ladies. Sunglasses can help prevent wrinkles and, more importantly, melanoma. According to my friends at the Vision Council of America, you should:

Choose sunnies that block 100 percent of UVA/UVB rays (check the label).

Avoid street-fair cheapies, even if the lenses are darker—they cause pupils to dilate, which allows harmful rays to penetrate more easily.

Remember to wear them. Fifty-two percent of women forget to put on their sunglasses.
