Summer is a great time to enjoy outdoor activities with your friends and family. During summer we always had lots of exciting options (camping, bike riding etc…) to have fun and enjoyment.
Another side, sun safety is one of the most important issues that should keep in the mind, while enjoying outdoor activities during summer time. Do you know, according to Center for disease control and prevention (CDC), Sun’s UV rays can damage your skin in as little as 15 minutes of time. And cause adverse effects on the skin.
I am sure we all are aware of the basic sun safety measures, that includes,
- Avoid going outside during peak sun intensity hours ( when the UV rays are strongest betweeon 10 A.M. to 3 P.M.)
- Apply sunscreen lotion with an average SPF of 15 before going outside.
- Wear sunglasses to protect your eyes, from the harmful effect of UV rays.
- Wear comfortable and protective clothing that includes long sleeve shirts, long pants etc.
- Wear sun hats that shade your face, ear and back of neck from harmful UV rays.
How sun hats help in protecting our skin from harmful UV rays
I believed when we talked about sun-safety, using sun hats are one of the easiest (and stylish too) ways to protect yourself from harmful UV rays. According to Skincancer.org , sun hats help a lot in sun protection. It helps in,
- Covering the places where it is difficult to apply sunscreen lotion (such as the back of the neck, top of ear etc.)
- It is an effective add-on to sunscreen and gives a proper coverage to our scalp, face, eyes and other delicate structure.
- Hats also help in keep as cool and add a style quotient to our overall look and personality.
Though there are no hard and fast rules to select good quality sun hats. Still, there are few things that should be kept in mind, while choosing the right sun hat.
It is one of the most important factors that help in selecting a right sun hat for you and your family. UPF is Ultraviolet protection factor (similar to SPF, sun protection factor is applied while we select a sunscreen lotion) that applies to clothing.
It is very important to check UPF rating of sun hat before buying it.
Hats with brims all around and those with angled downwards provide great UV protection. Research shows that broad brim hats provide equivalent protection to approximately 5, for the nose, face and neck areas of the body.
It should get fit comfortably to your head. It should not be too tight on your head.
Another important factor, the used fabric should provide a proper breathability.
Also, it is equally important to keep your personal preferences in mind before buying it. For example, what kind of activity will you be doing while wearing it? What level of sun protection do you want? And is it more about the style or functionality. All these factors will help you a lot to make a correct decision.
During this summer, when we as a family are enjoying lots of fun and outdoor activities, I was in search of to get a classic, and elegant woman sun hat that not only provides me a proper sun protection but works as a style accessory too.
Finally, my search reached a beautiful destination with this beautiful, embroidery, lettering floppy, wide brim sun protection hat (by senerita).
