With summer just around the corner, it’s time to get serious about protecting your skin, especially your face. We’re not twenty anymore or even close. Most of us already have some serious sun damage and while a good sunscreen and sunglasses are a must, you can’t get by with a sun visor anymore. You need a great hat with UPF 50+ to give you full protection.
Haven’t convinced you? How about this statistic: skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in the United States with more than one million cases diagnosed annually, according to The Skin Cancer Foundation. Yikes! You can protect your skin by wearing sun-protective clothing such as broad-brimmed hats, long-sleeved shirts, or pants.
Fortunately, skin cancer, both melanoma, and non-melanoma is preventable and treatable when detected early. Exposure to UV also results in premature aging–none of us need that! UV rays break down the collagen and elastin fibers in healthy skin. Only a broad-brimmed hat can help prevent exposure to UV on your face, neck, and scalp.
We love these hats from Wallaroo. They offer a wide variety of wide-brim hats that help limit sun exposure to the face while adding style to your outfits.
The Victoria hat has a generous 4-inch brim with popular lightweight poly-straw and is available in 6 color choices. It can be packed flat. This hat is also washable in cold water with mild liquid soap and can be air-dried.
Hats like the Savannah go perfect with sundresses and summer outfits, the wide brim will keep you cool and shaded and the internal drawstring allows you to custom adjust the fit to you.
The Naomi shorter brimmed 3″ wrap-around hat is a great option for outdoor activities like golf, when you want sun protection with good visibility. The natural woven fibers in shades of brown and the wooden beading create a natural look that will keep you in sync with your surroundings.
Protect your skin and it will keep you in your PRIME for many years to come!
