Even wondered why we’re wearing sunglasses?  Is it just for the cool looks?  Cool classis Paurio looks?

When exposed to the sun, slapping on sunscreen lotions has become standard, all over the world, to protect ourselves from getting skin cancer.  Notwithstanding, there still were over 4 million cases of skin cancer in the United States last year.  It is shocking to think of how many more cases of skin cancer there would have been if we didn’t all put on sunscreen.

These protective lotions are rated by their power of protection, or SPF which stands for Sun Protection Factor.  The prevalent thinking has become to choose an SPF of 50.

There is no argument about skin sunscreen, is there? What should be added to the equation, however, is to also wear sunglasses.

Think of sunglasses as sunscreen for your eyes.

Wearing sunglasses should go hand in hand with applying sunscreen.

Why would you protect your skin and not your eyes when exposed to the harmful rays of the sun?

Over time, the sun’s rays can seriously damage the eyes and surrounding skin, sometimes leading to vision loss and conditions from cataracts and macular degeneration to eyelid cancer. Often overlooked is the damage the sun can do to the eyelids. The eyelid’s skin is thin and contains many fragile tissues vulnerable to the harmful rays of the sun.

The fairer your skin, the greater your age, and the lighter your eyes, the higher your long term risk.  Moreover, we have to protect our eyes daily because the risk keeps adding up. Even on overcast days, harmful UV rays can penetrate through clouds and haze.

Here comes the good news – the cure is sunglasses – that’s right, sunglasses!

Sunglasses will provide UVA and UVB protection.  Color is not important; choose the color you like.   You should, however, favor larger sunglasses with larger lenses that cover a larger portion of the eyes and face.

Pau Rio sunglasses answer ALL these needs with the added advantage of a lower price than other designer sunglasses and a “lifetime” guarantee.
