UV-filtering Polaroid lenses and SPF-35 lotion may not be the end of the battle against the increasingly demonized sun. Botox, the favored lethal substance of the furrowed-brow crowd, is now being used to combat unsightly lines caused by squinting in the sun. With a fraction of the dosage usually applied to the brow, the muscle-paralyzing injection can eliminate the effects of wrinkling the nose.

Just wait till your ophthalmologist hears about this one.
