Cute sunglasses with UVA/UVB protection are a must-have fashion accessory for the skin and sun savvy girl on the go! Sunglasses protect our eyes from damaging rays that can cause eye health issues and of course they also protect the vulnerable skin around the eyes as well. The skin around the eyes is the thinnest skin on the body and lacks oil glands so this skin is easily damaged and usually the first area of the face to show premature aging. The muscles between the eyes are called the corrugator and this is the most common area that men and women get Botox injections since when we squint these muscles come together and eventually make the lines commonly referred to as the “11” by our dermatologist and plastic surgeon friends. This is so common that the company that distributes Botox  has created a whole advertising campaign about the “11” lines. We can stave off the development of these lines by avoiding squinting when possible- good sunglasses will help immensely!  Pigmentation issues can pop up around the eyes too so protect your peepers with sunglasses that offer both UVA/UVB protection. Remember that UVA rays penetrate through glass so when we are driving we aren’t protected from the sun.

I recently discovered a wonderful brand called ICU Eyewear that not only offer UVA/UVB protective lenses but are stylish, eco-friendly and affordable – yes affordable! Sometimes “eco-anything” denotes a higher price tag but the folks at ICU eyewear in Hollister, CA want everyone to have gorgeously protective sunglasses so they are priced just right – you may want to buy several pairs for different outfits, events, moods, hair colors (you know who you are! etc.) You are sure to find a pair that will reflect your own personal style! ICU was the first sunglass company in the U.S. to make designs with reclaimed plastic, recycled metal and sustainable bamboo. They are fashion-forward and some even incorporate sparkle and really fashionable designs – there are some very sophisticated designs and pink and sparkly too which works for me! They are sold online and in many stores including Whole Foods. The good folks at ICU Eyewear donate 1000’s of pairs of their reading glasses every year to charity! They have the cutest reading glasses and an online chart on their site which can tell you what percentage of magnification you need so there is no guessing games there. Also, it is interesting to note that studies say 73% of adults wear sunglasses and that only 58% of adults make their children wear sunglasses. I think it’s great that ICU has cute and affordable sunglasses for children too!

I have two different pairs to give away to one lucky reader!  Just comment on this post and share it on social media for a chance to win! The winner will be contacted Sept 20th and announced on my blog. This contest is only open to U.S. residents.
