One of the most important items you should always travel with—regardless of your destination—is a good pair of sunglasses.
Whether you’re relaxing on a perfect beach holiday or hitting the slopes the sun’s rays can do serious damage. People with light-colored eyes, like blue or green, are even more at risk of sunlight-related eye damage. And not to get too dramatic here, but eyelid cancer accounts for five to ten percent of all skin cancers. So wearing sunglasses is just as important as applying sunscreen (which you should also be doing).
But what exactly does a “good” pair mean? First of all, you'll need sunglasses that block harmful UV-A and UV-B rays. Choose sunglasses that are comfortable and appropriate for where you're going and what activities you will be participating in. Make sure the frame is not too tight but instead comfortably snug. You don’t want to leave marks on the side of your face or have them swept off by a strong wind.
Of course, design is important, too. Thankfully, there are many quality options on the market that you won’t have to search long to find a pair that looks cool and protects your eyes. Investing in a classic style, like the aviator or the wayfarer, is always a good idea. Opting for a statement pair with mirrored lenses and a bold colored frame, on the other hand, is a great way to add some fun to your travel outfits.
