If you are heading to the beach for spring break, then make sure that you not only do it in style but that you keep your vision safe as well. With the sun reflecting off of the water and the beach, if you don’t show up protected, you’re bound to get some serious sun damage or even permanent vision damage. So, how can you show up to the beach prepared? Let’s take a closer look and see.
If you’re going to invest in one accessory to bring with you to the beach this year, make it a good pair of sunglasses. Sunglasses are going to be your eyes biggest defense against the sun’s harsh and potentially harmful rays. When you’re shopping for a pair of sunglasses, make sure that they offer both UVA and UVB protection; that way you know that you are protected all around.
A Large Brimmed Hat
Bringing any hat is a good idea when you are heading to the beach because it will add an extra layer of protection to shield your eyes from the sun. However, if you can, try to find a large brimmed hat because it won’t just cover the front of your face and shield your eyes, but it will protect your neck and chest from sun damage as well.
A Good Book
Nothing will help you relax quite like grabbing a good book to bring with you to the beach. Whether you prefer to have an actual book in your hands or you’d rather use an e-reader, just make sure that you keep your sunglasses on while you are reading; that way you know that you won’t get a glare.
