Sunglasses are necessary to protect your eyes as well as to help you strike the perfect pose! And some health experts are saying sunglasses could help you before you step onto the beach – by helping you overcome jet lag.
Sunglasses, especially designer sunglasses are the must-have accessory through the summer months. And many of us start thinking about investing in a pair when the sun starts to shine or if we’re about to jet off somewhere hot. But research shows that sunglasses could be more than just good for your looks, they can be good for your well being too.
Sunglasses – Plane Sailing
According to leading sleep experts, wearing sunglasses in the last stages of an overnight flight makes perfect sense. If you’re Bono or Posh Spice, chances are you’ll be wearing shades 24-7, regardless of where you are and if the sun is out.
But for anyone on an overnight flight, the sunglasses can help you beat jet lag if you wear them on the plane and keep them on for the first few hours when you land. The advice is the result of research by Chris Idzikowski, the director of the Edinburgh Sleep Centre.
He also recommended that planes change the light on-board to help the passengers’ body clocks adjust to the time zone leaps. Just changing your watch to the destination time and trying to stay awake simply doesn’t help jet lag. Chris Idzikowski says jet lag is a physical response, that demands more than a “mind over matter” solution.
Put Your Glasses on!
And if you’re going to wear sunglasses to help you beat jetlag, you may as well make sure they are stylish sunglasses. Designer sunglasses from leading brands such as Gucci and Chanel offer timeless sophistication, so you’ll look good getting off your flight and on the beach. Chris Idzikowski has worked out that if you rise at 7am and are flying to New York, you should be exposed to light between 9pm and 11.30pm and wear their sunglasses between 11.30pm and 2am.
Sunglasses then have become one of the essential items for any holiday in the sun – not just to protect your eyes and safeguard you from dangerous ultra violet rays, and not just to ensure you look cool and chic – but to even help you beat jet lag.
