Are Your Sunglasses Giving You Wrinkles?
If dermatologists ran the world (or Bloomingdale’s), you’d only be able to buy wraparound sunglasses. But they don’t. And it’s not the ’80s. Thank God. But some shades can make your skin more vulnerable to sun damage—and others (OK, not wraparounds) offer extra protection.
Don’t bring your aviators to the beach. I know, I know, it’s sad. But the metal frames on most aviators “reflect sunlight on the tops of the cheeks, causing them to burn,” says Vivian Bucay, a dermatologist in San Antonio. And women who wear them often get sun spots on their cheeks as a result, she says. Pick sunglasses with plastic frames instead.
Go for sunglasses with mirrored lenses. “They block more UV rays than regular tinted lenses,” says Bucay. That’s key, since the thin skin around your eyes is so prone to sun damage and wrinkles. There are lots of good options, including ones from Marc Jacobs, 3.1 Phillip Lim, and Céline, which makes the sunglasses the model in this picture is wearing.
Dark eye circles that are getntig worse?I began noticing dark circles under my eyes about 4 months ago. I may have had them before then but not bad enough to really notice or be concerned about. In the last 4 months the dark circles have slowly been getntig worse, from dark mostly by my nose to now spanning almost under my entire eye. I’ve even been using dark are reducer serum by wrinkle system, which is the only dark circle treatment thats had decent reviews. Still, the dark circles are there and not getntig worse. Also, my lifestyle, eating habits, stress level, amount of sleep ect haven’t changed at all. Any ideas about whats going on?Reed- I am. Also there’s a typo in my description. I meant to say the dark circles are there and not getntig better in reference the the dark circle eye serum. I haven’t noticed any improvement from it at all.
