How to take care of your eyes on holiday!

Your summer holiday is getting closer!

Whether you’re going to spend it by the sea or exploring a new city, it’s important to consider protecting your eyes!

We have put together 5 hot tips that can help you take care of your sight while enjoying your holiday :

1) Sunglasses with UV protection: protecting our eyes from the sun is just as important as protecting our skin. The same harmful rays that can cause wrinkles, premature ageing and skin cancer also affect the eyes. UVA and UVB rays can cause damage to different parts of the eye including the retina and lens, which can lead to macular degeneration and Cataracts.

2) Sun cream: It’s not just the eye surface that needs protection, but you should also protect the skin around the eyes should it come into contact with sunlight. A sun cream of the required SPF should be used frequently to help protect from sun damage.

3) Swimming Goggles: Always wear goggles when swimming in the pool, remember that contaminants can have an effect on your eyes, and could potentially cause redness. Also, never wear contact lenses when swimming either in the pool or in the sea, as bacteria in the water can lead to a serious eye infection! You may want to consider investing in prescription goggles if you struggle with no lenses.

4) Preservative Free Dry Eyes drops:  heat, sunlight and dry air can lead to dry eyes – good idea to take eye drops with you!

5) Take a break: A summer holiday is a good excuse to take a break from the computer artificial lights! if you work long hours in front of a computer screen you are increasing your chances of becoming short sighted, according to Californian eye specialists.

Taylor Swift is one of the most popular contemporary female singer and fashion icon.

Red lipstick and short skirts are well known as a signature of her style, although not only does she look stunning in feminine and classical outfits she can also pull together great everyday-urban looks as you can see from the photos. We have done some research and found a few sunglasses for a Taylor Swift inspired look! 😀

As increasingly vital fashion accessories for elegant men and women, the natural essential lines of Giorgio Armani brand glasses – also available with a touch of irony in the fresh, youthful style of Emporio Armani – are given added value through the expert craftsmanship of Luxottica. Attention to detail with every set of frames becomes, in this way, a basic part of ensuring the universal and timeless style of Armani. Frames suited to every look are available in clean shapes produced in surprising materials and elegant colors – with the more sophisticated details inspired by evening wear collections.

Some key steps of the manufacturing process were created by the Luxottica artisans for international stars (including artist and singer Fergie, Spanish actress Blanca Suarez, French actress Lou Lesage, and German actress Aylin Tezel) who attended the exclusive event held during Milan Fashion Week at the Armani Theatre. The special party also featured the live music set of Scandinavian twins, Say Lou Lou, and actress and DJ Chelsea Leyland.
