Myth: Sunscreen doesn’t belong in your eye area.
Fact: The skin around the eye is thinner and is more susceptible to damage from the sun’s harmful rays.
I know that people avoid using sunscreen around their eyes due to the sting in your eyes during a workout or swimming when the sunscreen drips into your eyes. There are sunscreens available specifically for the face area that does not cause this problem. Sunscreen is essential for your eye area as skin cancers can develop even on your eyelids. Sun exposure is a major cause of wrinkles. You can also prevent premature ageing around your eyes by wearing bigger sunglasses.
