We learn more and more about skin cancer and its causes every single day.
Staying protected from the sun is one of the best ways to keep you happy and healthy. Those with skin conditions or even just people with sensitive skin need to be vigilant in picking out the best UV protection hat.
There are many things to consider when selecting a UV protection hat. There are three factors essential to keep in mind when choosing the best UV protection hat for you. The first is the brim size. Each brim size offers different levels of protection and comfort. Doctors recommend your brim to be at least 3 inches in length. Anything smaller will not provide the skin protection that you need. The second vital factor to consider is what the hat is made of. There are specialized UV50+ and UPF45+ materials available offering unprecedented sun protection. These materials are SPF rated meaning they will block 98% of the UVA and UVB rays. The last factor to keep in mind is the shape of the brim. The shape of the brim dictates how the sun is reflected off of your sun protection hat and keeps the rays away from your face. Brims that curve down and sit closer to the face typically provide better UV protection. Using a sun protection hat in conjunction with the proper SPF level sunscreen gives you the optimum skin protection possible.
Flap caps are a great way to protect your face and neck from the sun. You can find extended flap caps that cover all of your neck, and ears. They are almost mandatory for those with sensitive skin or other skin conditions. These hats also feature extended neck flaps that wrap all of the way to the front of your face to provide even more protection for your face. These flap caps are essential in maximizing your complete sun protection. There are so many people in this world that rely heavily on these kinds of hats due to their overly sensitive skin or other skin conditions
A fourth additional factor to consider is the color of the under brim. Darker colors are better at absorbing Ultra Violet light that could potentially reflect back on your face. Darker under brim colors help minimize glare and gives the wearer thorough sun protection as well as giving you those hot and sunny days.
Taking these factors in close consideration, you can be confident that your sun protection hat provides you with the excellent sun protection that you need, to keep you healthy and your skin looking great.
