The sad truth is that wrinkles cannot always be avoided. The older we get, the less elastic our skin becomes and the more visible the lines on it will be. However, it is possible to prevent some wrinkles by properly protecting your skin.
When it comes to choosing sunglasses, wrinkles and wrinkle prevention are not necessarily the first things that might come to your mind. However, sunglasses are an important tool for preventing wrinkles around the eyes. Bright sunlight can cause us to squint, which may accelerate damage to the skin around our eyes.
When considering sunglasses, note that they are not just for sunny summer days, they are for overcast and winter days as well. Along with factors such as our facial expressions, ultraviolet (UV) rays are among the main causes of wrinkling. UV rays are invisible and can still cause damage even when there is no bright sunshine.
Sunglasses block ultraviolet rays that can result in skin wrinkling. These rays can also cause sunburn, cataracts and skin cancer. The right sunglasses will also block the glare that reflects off shiny surfaces such as water and asphalt.
