Summer means days on the links, at the beach and on the boat. It means jogs up the mountainside and boardslides down the staircase.
And for many of us, summer means long hours outside, in the sun.
There are many reasons to love this time of year, thanks largely to that bright yellow object in the sky. But instead of worshipping it, we suggest you simply respect it.
That’s because the sun can lead to long-term health impacts. If you follow us on Facebook, you’ve seen the stories we’ve posted about how exposure to the sun can lead to cataracts, cancers of the eye and eyelid, damage to the cornea as well as blurred vision and irritation.
This recent WCVB article notes that sun exposure impacts those of all ages, including children as 50 percent of all eye damage occurs before the age of 18.
For young children, X-Wear has you covered with our line of small-fit sunglasses that include top brands like Babiators, Ray-Ban juniors and Suncloud.
For adults, we have our performance line geared to those who enjoy watersports, cycling, rock climbing, kayaking, SUP and other extreme sports.
And for those who want to look good while enjoying the outdoors, check out our most fashionable pairs of sunglasses that serve to protect your eyes while not compromising your style.
Finally, if you’ve been out in the sun a little too long and that sunblock didn’t work, you’ll want to try Solar Recover. This all-natural mist will help soothe even the worst of burns while also serving as a skin moisturizer and a cool aftershave.
Because we care about your eyes AND your skin, we are offering a 20% discount on these products through the end of July. Just use the code SUN2015 when checking out.
