The shade is real in Hollywood on June 27 — but not because of a massive celebrity feud. Nope, this time, it’s just because it’s National Sunglasses day, and stars like Lea Michele and more have taken to social media to reveal how they’re celebrating. Check out all the pics here!
It seems there’s a holiday for just about everything these days! June 27 marks another pretty random one: National Sunglasses Day! Click through the gallery to find out which stars are celebrating this year and find out more about it right here!
National Sunglasses Day, owned by the Vision Council, isn’t just an excuse to show off your favorite Ray Bans — it’s actually a day of awareness regarding the importance of wearing UV-protective eyewear. Not wearing sunglasses can cause major vision risks, according to the holiday’s official website, and can be pretty dangerous.
It turns out, the sun isn’t only bad for our skin…we need to be really careful with our eyes, too! And while National Sunglasses Day is a great excuse to rock sunnies, the holiday is really a way to urge people to wear their sunglasses all the time when they’re outside.
Stars like Lea Michele, LL Cool J, Pitbull and more took to social media on June 27 to share photos of themselves wearing their favorite sunglasses in honor of this day, and you can check out all their fun pics in the gallery above. We still have a WHOLE lot of summer left, so make sure you’re not only lathering up with sunscreen, but also wearing your sunglasses as often as possible when stepping outside — especially since we’re not all caught up about how dangerous it is not to!
HollywoodLifers, are you celebrating National Sunglasses Day with your fave sunnies!? Will you start being more careful about going out without sunglasses?
