Not only can sunlight damage your eyesight, but it can also cause cataracts and other eye-related problems. Plus, the skin around your eyes and making up your eyelids is some of the most delicate skin on the body, making it particularly prone to sunburns and, therefore, skin cancer.
When choosing sunglasses to shield you from the harsh sun, there are a few important factors to consider. Aim for sunglasses that block 100% of both UVB and UVA rays, giving you a full-range of protection. And, if you spend a lot of time on the water, you might want to pursue polarized lenses, which filter out glare.
Be sure that the sunglasses fit your face, and remember that bigger lenses equal more protection. That being said, you might want to check out some of summer 2015’s sunglasses trends, to stay cool while the weather is hot:
- Oversized sunglasses, just like regular glasses, are still trendy this summer, building on a few years of popularity.
- Similarly, retro shapes are still in, though this year’s preference seems to be more ’60s and ’70s, and less ’80s. Try pairing a vintage pair of glasses with a gradient color fade.
- As far as colors go – bold, blocky colors are in, particularly cobalt blue. Contrastingly, frames that are transparent yet slightly frosty should be popular this summer.
- Lastly, the wayfarer-shaped glasses still reign king as the coolest form, but based on the most recent runway looks, wayfarers with a flat top will be the most fashionable.
