Protecting Your Skin from the Sun

Why is it so important to protect our skin from the sun? What is photo-aging? Why is the sun so damaging? How safe are tanning bends? How can we best protect ourselves from the harmful effects of the sun and select the best sunscreen? What's the best way to apply sunscreen?
