BIG SUNGLASSES – Anti-Aging Defense


Anti-aging Tip: Invest in a good pair of sunglasses. Sunglasses are more than just a fashion statement. They protect our eyes from squinting on sunny days, which can lead to crow’s feet overtime. If you’ve already developed wrinkles around the eyes, Botox can temporarily erase & smooth out your existing fine lines.

One of the best things you can do to protect your skin from sun and minimize wrinkling around your eyes is to regularly wear large sunglasses. Such a simple thing can make such a dramatic difference in how you look and age.

Research has shown that people that start wearing sunglasses that have large lenses earlier in life and continue – have a lot less sun damage, wrinkling and discoloration. They are a miracle for reducing crows feet. The key is to make sure the lenses are not only large enough but also have darker lenses which will reduce the sun rays along with having the right protection.

Invest in glasses for sun and otherwise. In the sun — Look for sunglasses with more opaque lenses and both UVA and UVB protection. They’ll keep you from squinting, which will help you avoid wrinkles and protect the delicate skin around your eyes from sun-induced discoloration. (Even the most diligent SPF-appliers often forget to apply it there, says Ranella Hirsch, MD, a board-certified dermatologist in Boston). The bigger the frame, the better.

For everyday — As vision gets less sharp, other muscles in your eye area pitch in to help you focus, says Hirsch, which makes lines around the eyes worse. The right prescription can solve the problem.
