Celebs such as Beyonce, Mariah Carey, Johny Depp and Kim Kardashian all have one thing in common: they love wearing their sunglasses. With summer officially in full swing, many of us are now showing off our sun glasses while driving, at the beach, or walking in the streets.

Sunglasses are not only a fashion accessory but protect your eyes from ultraviolet rays, and also help ward off headaches.
