Problems Solved

While outdoors during sunny days, people may opt to wear traditional sunglasses in order to protect their eyes from harmful UV rays. The sunglasses extend back and rest on the upper portion of a wearer’s ear; however, this upper portion of the ear is often left unprotected. Some people may apply sunscreen to this area, but others may end up forgetting and leave their ears susceptible to sun damage and skin cancer, leaving a highly negative impact on an individual’s skin.
