Lauren Conrad is heading into her 10-year-reunion and has been doing "a little reflecting" about her "Laguna Beach" days.

So, the designer, author and reality star, 28, answered the question, "What are three things you wish you could tell your 18-year-old self?"

She listed her advice on her blog:

1 -- Wear sunscreen!

2 -- Enjoy being young.

3 -- Be an individual.

Let's dive deeper into her answers.

About wearing sunscreen, she said, "This is an obvious one. When I was a teenager, tanning was the mode du jour and I was all about getting that sun-kissed (or tanning bed orange ...) glow. I felt invincible, and never thought twice about the skin damage caused by UV rays. Nowadays, I’ve learned to embrace my natural skin tone in the hopes that it will mean less wrinkles and a lower risk of skin cancer as I get older."

On enjoying her youth, she said, "When I was 18, I was in a hurry to grow up. Instead, I wish I would have taken a beat to just enjoy being young."

Finally, she said she wished she was more an individual.

She may have wanted to branch out from her usual friends, even those on the show such as Stephen Colletti and others.

"For so long you’ve gone to school with the same people, and everything you’ve done is with the same group of friends in more or less the same environment," she wrote. "Then, for the first time you get to go off on your own and make real, conscious decisions about where you want life to take you. You get to choose your school, your major, and what kind of person you’ll become. So when you’re making these decisions, be an individual. It’s the best way to discover who you really are."
