    The greatest environmental enemy we have is UV radiation, which we’re getting more and more of now that the ozone layer is being depleted by chemicals like chlorofluorocarbons, which come from products like aerosol sprays and refrigerants.  UV radiation alters cells in your skin and prompts increased melanin production, which is why you get tan when you stay out in the sun.  UV radiation can cause skin cancer, which is very often fatal.

    The best way to protect yourself against UV radiation is to keep your skin covered with long sleeves and pants.  Look for lightweight materials or even fabric with built-in SPF.  If you must strip down during sunnier weather, make sure to cover any exposed skin with sunscreen that has an SPF rating of at least 30.
