We would be remiss if we didn't remind you to bring sun protection with you on vacation. Cancer-free skin is certainly the ultimate beauty accessory, so keep yourself safe.

To protect your eyes, pick up a pair of sunglasses for your vacation. Since it's so easy to lose sunglasses, you might consider purchasing an inexpensive, fun pair specifically for your vacation. (Obviously this won't be the case, if you have prescription lenses.) If you're worried about losing your pricey, designer pair, leave them at home.

You can also protect your skin from the sun with a sunhat. A floppy sunhat is fashionable and retro, and you can jazz it up by tying a cute scarf tied around it. Nowadays, you can find wrinkle-free hats that will fold up, or squish up, in your suitcase and tote.

And, of course, don't forget your sunblock.
