Soak Up the Sun Without the Breakouts

Sunglasses are without a doubt my favorite accessory… OK I lie. It’s my favorite after handbags. Still, it’s such a staple for me and there’s something so cool about them… they are so mysterious and have such attitude – I love it. Oh yeah, and the best bit, they protect your precious eyes! However, oil can build up on that nose piece after a long day out and about in the sun, and this can lead to blackheads, clogged pores and – ew! – zits.

To prevent this, remember to rinse the oil and bacteria off your sunglasses every few days and dry thoroughly. Or, if you’re a germ freak like me, give it a gentle wash after every use.

If you’re planning to ignore my advice, let me tell you a little story.

Last summer, I was enjoying myself in Europe eating pizza, shopping and looking at hot Italian boys in Milan and Rome. Because of the blazing hot weather, I was wearing sunglasses pretty much all day, everyday, and didn’t think to wash my greasy, disgusting glasses once I got back to the hotel every night. By the end of the trip, about 2 weeks later, I got the baddest zit slash volcanic lump I’ve ever seen at the corner of my nose bridge. Not pretty. And it took ages for it to disappear… I’m warning you, clean your glasses! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Do you clean your sunglasses regularly? What do you think of this week’s tip – have you ever experienced any blemishes from your sunglasses?

  1. Awesome tip! I clean both my regular glasses and sunglasses regularly because makeup builds up on the nose pads (eeew!) and the lenses get smudged easily.

  2. I thought about this the other day! I’ve just started to learn to drive so I’m wearing my glasses more, I thought I’d email you seeing if you had any tips and then I stumbled upon this after using your search bar (One of the best, most relevant results btw!) Brill post!
