We all know that a great pair of Christian Dior sunglasses can make us look fabulous during those summer months but did you know they're also protecting us? Harmful UV rays from the sun can affect our skin, hair and our eyes.
There are three bands of UV rays: UVA, UVB and UVC. While the UVC band is absorbed by the Earth's atmosphere, UVA and UVB do make their way to us. While there is still some debate as to whether UVA rays do damage to our eyes UVB rays are extremely harmful to all parts of our bodies. This is where a good pair of sunglasses can save those beautiful peepers of yours. Christian Dior sunglasses protect from both UVA and UVB rays, blocking the damaging effects of UV rays.
Scientists use an index to measure the strength of ultraviolet rays at any given time. This scale goes from 1 to 11, with 11 being the highest levels and the most harmful. Often when you hear a weather report they will also inform us of the UV index. It is very important to pay attention to this number and to dress appropriately. During high levels of ultraviolet rays it is best to protect your entire body by wearing clothing that covers up your skin, a high level of sunscreen protection, a hat, and of course, sunglasses. So the next time those UV rays are high grab your Christian Dior sunglasses and be sexy and smart at the same time.
