- Avoid direct sunlight and wear hats and glasses: You are most vulnerable when exposed to direct sunlight. Wearing a hat and sunglasses to shield the facial area, not only protects your eyes but that thin layer of skin surrounding the eyes, which is a very sensitive area prone to dryness and darkness.
