6 Undeniably Good Reasons to Add a Stylish Sun Hat to Your Summer Outfit

If you have yet to invest in a good quality sun hat as part of your sun protection plan for summer, consider this a timely reminder. Besides adding an unmistakable touch of elegance and sophistication to any outfit, regularly wearing a sun hat can have a myriad of benefits.

Protection from Harmful UV Rays

Arguably the most important reason to wear a sun hat of course is to protect your face and neck from harmful UV rays. A sunhat with a UPF 50+ rating can block out 98% of the sun’s UVB rays making them a particularly effective way to protect areas such as nose, ears, lips, face, and neck which are most commonly affected by skin cancer.

Prevent Skin Damage

Besides skin cancer, sun hats can also help to prevent other types of skin damage such as sunburn, age spots, wrinkles, and uneven skin tone. Keep your skin looking healthy and youthful by shading your face with a stylish sun hat.

Protect Your Hair from Sun Damage

Does the summer weather put a strain on your usually luscious locks leaving them dryer and more brittle than usual? Adding a sun hat to your everyday ensemble can protect your hair from the sun, allowing it to retain that all-important moisture and prevent unsightly split ends and breakage. Wearing a sun hat may mean fewer trips to the hairdressers too as they can also prevent colour fading!

Protect Your Eyes

It is imperative to good eye health to protect  them from the suns UV rays. Not only can the sun’s glare cause discomfort such as eyestrain which can lead to headaches and fatigue, it can also cause damage to your eyes. Wearing a sunhat and sunglasses can block the UV rays and help to reduce your risk of developing cataracts.

Help You Stay Cooler

A UPF50+ rated sunhat made from a breathable material that allows airflow can be a great way to stay cool and comfortable in the sun.

Remember to combine your sun hat with sunglasses and sunscreen!
