Did you know….?
Did you know that people with blue eyes tend to develop crow’s feet later than people with darker eye colors? This is because the lower levels of melanin in blue eyes make them much more sensitive to light. Due to this increased sensitivity, many blue eyed individuals feel the need for sunglasses more than some of their dark eyed counterparts. Wearing sunglasses not only prevents squinting, but also protects the eye area from collagen destroying UVA and UVB rays.
This summer, don’t let your eyes and the delicate skin surrounding them go unprotected! Be sure to always wear your sunglasses, preferably the wraparound style, which has no gaps that let the sunlight in. The result will be worth it – smoother, younger looking skin for years to come.
In addition to wearing sunglasses, make sure you have a great moisturizer and eye treatment cream/gel to help combat any existing damage, as well as to provide preventative care. The Gilded Girl has several cutting edge eye products to meet your needs, including Rodial Bee Venom Eye Cream, Rodial Dragon’s Blood Eye Gel, and Glo Therapeutics Eye Restore.
