Sofia Vergara Wishes She'd Used More Sunscreen in Her 20s

But not on the body part you might expect.

Everyone has beauty regrets. Literally everyone, including the objectively-gorgeous Sofia Vergara.


Vergara looks downright perfect to us, but the stunning Modern Family star admits there's at least one big beauty mistake she regrets making when she was younger. She told PeopleStyle (opens in new tab) that if she had a time machine, she'd go back and tell her 20-something self to use more sunscreen—specifically on her chest.

"In my 20s, I started to use sunblock on my face," she told PeopleStyle. "I wish I had put it on my chest too."

Most of us have been guilty of skimping on sunscreen at one time or another, so we can fully relate. It's a helpful reminder of how important it is to apply sunscreen all over, not just to your face and arms.

Today, Vergara is a full-on sunblock pro, but she says she can't turn back the clock on her past sun exposure.

"I do it now," she insisted. "I think it's too late, but what can I do?"

Better late than never, Sofia.
