As the warm weather approaches, women who like to soak up the sun are likely to be shopping for the perfect pair of shades. Whether they don something stylish and trendy, or a pair of classic dark frames, most know that sunglasses are an accessory that enhances your health as much as your ensemble.
Because exposure to UV rays can lead to glaucoma, cataracts and age-related macular degeneration, the American Optometric Association (AOA) suggests purchasing sunglasses that block at least 99 percent of both UVA and UVB rays, screen out 75 to 90 percent of visible light and have a gray tint for proper color recognition.
So, the next time you hit the beach or spend an afternoon poolside, be sure to throw on some sunglasses.
In addition to shades, in the summer months, choosing the right eye makeup may be beneficial to one's eye health and comfort.
Women who live an active lifestyle and spend time outdoors are likely to benefit from tubing mascara, which will not flake off and irritate their eyes the way that some traditional mascaras might.
