How Sunglasses Can Protect Your Skin

Just a few days ago a viral photo with a man who didn’t wear a sunscreen flooded the web. A 69 year old man was working as a truck driver and over the 30 years had same shifts in the same direction. Consequently only one part of his face was exposed to a sun. A photo of his face where left part of his face looks 20 years older than right part became a picture of the week.

While the sunscreen idea was well advertised, not too many people really wear it. Especially men. For one, we are used to put on a regular cream in the evening and night because it moisturizes the skin. Sunscreen makes skin sweaty and wears off in a few hours, while moisturizer lasts for up to 24 hours. It is very hard to convince someone to start wearing a sunscreen.

However, there are other alternatives, such as sunglasses.

Nowadays sunglasses are large, some cover a huge part of the face. All brand name sunglasses have UV protection, in addition to vision protection.

Let’s not forget that wrinkles also develop because of blinking and winking. Sunglasses will do exactly that – prevent you from blinking.

Vision protection can not be overestimated. UV is the major cause of a cataract, and with thin ozone layer cataract is the most growing condition among people over 40.

There were some suggestions online to tint windows in addition to wearing sunscreen. Today, most of new cars come with UV protection, but tinting, just like sunglasses will help you to avoid blinking and winking.

Here are some good men sunglasses that will do the job to protect skin around the eyes against sun damage and wrinkles.

Cat Eye Sunglasses for Big, Small, Square and Round Faces

Cat eye sunglasses were first introduced in early 60’s. This was in the era when sunglasses were becoming fashion accessories on the top of sun protection devices or vision correction attributes. As more fashion brands were entering the market the fashion aspect of glasses grew faster than the flash. After aviators and round glasses, cat eye was the third shape  widely introduced to the market in Europe and America. Cat eye glasses lasted for about 20 years, then outgrew themselves. In the last few years, they made unexpected comeback.

Most of people did not have a very good reaction, well it’s cool, but too old. But as designers keep including cat eye glasses shapes in their collections, the new-old trend is gaining momentum.

Many people underestimate the power of cat eye shape. Cat eye sunglasses fit every head. If your head is too big, or too round, you would normally try to stay away from square sunglasses. Or if your face is too long, you were told that square or round works for your face. Well, in fact, cat eye works for any face because of the angles on the eye brow line. So, if you have square face or round face or even long face, cat eye sunglasses will bring a nice balance. Not only, cat eye sunglasses will take the attention away from the face shape and attract more concentration towards the style, brand and color of the actual sunglasses.
