WHY WE LOVE NATIONAL SUNGLASSES DAY
They make you look attractive (and fun!)
No kidding, science has shown that sunglasses make us look more attractive. There are a few reasons for this. 1) Cover up and offer a symmetrical structure to your face. No face is perfectly symmetrical, but sunglasses hide it! 2) They add an air of mystery: when you can’t see someone’s eye movements, they seem more mysterious and 3) the historical link between glamor and movie stars, who adopted sunglasses in the 1950s to avoid the paparazzi.
Protect your vision
You don’t need to buy the most expensive lenses to get the most effective UVA and UVB protection; Even the cheap ones on the rotating grocery shelves are doing you a big favor! Even if the sun doesn’t hurt your eyes, UV rays can cause photokeratitis, pingueculae, and permanent damage to your retina, if you are exposed to them frequently. Look for sunglasses that protect you from 99 to 100 percent UVA and UVB light. This includes those labeled “UV 400”, which blocks all light rays with wavelengths up to 400 nanometers. Don’t worry, they are not hard to find.
They prevent you from having wrinkles
Sunglasses help prevent wrinkles in two ways 1) keep the eyes relaxed and prevent squinting, which helps prevent crow’s feet wrinkles at the corners of the eyes, and 2) block damage from harmful skin and cancer that causes UV rays to reach the sensitive skin around our eyes Wear sunglasses for health and to look amazing. Double victory!
