6. Eye Protection

The Mistake: You hate the hassle of carrying around sunglasses.

UV rays can induce cataracts, says Marian Northington, MD, assistant professor of dermatology at the University of Alabama. According to the American Academy of Ophthalmology, African-Americans are the most susceptible, but everyone is at risk.

For maximum coverage, wear glasses that wrap around to your temples, so the sun can't sneak in from the sides. Your sunglasses should also have lenses that block both types of UV rays; the tag should include the phrase "100% UV protection."
