UV Safety Awareness Month

During warmer weather there is always a main focus on protecting your skin, However we do not hear much about protecting the eyes.

More exposure to bright sunlight increases the risk of developing problems with our eyes when we are older.

July may be the month of UV awareness but we should really be aware all year round. Our skin and eyes are exposed all the time.

Sunlight is not the only cause for concern when it comes to our skin and eyes, Sunbeds also offer a higher dose of UV. We can limit our risk by wearing adequate eye protection such as UV Blocking sunglasses rather than opting for the "pretty" pair.

UV rays are invisible so here i will share with you some tips to help protect you and your family.

* UV block sunglasses

* Protection against UV & UB Rays

* Glasses that cover the temples

* Contact lense wearer - You still need sunglasses

* Sun protection cream at least 30 to protect against UVB

* 4 Star UVA Protection

Star rating is very important as it measures the amount of ultraviolet A radiation protection. The higher the rating the better.

You ideally should be wearing an SPF all year round, not only does it protect your skin from sun damage it also helps maintain an even skin tone.

Did you know even when its dull and overcast your skin is still absorbing up to 80% of sun rays.
