Ladies, did you know that excessive exposure to UV radiation from the sun can lead to skin cancer? With the summer sun scorching down on us, it is a great idea to take out your baseball caps, bucket hats, and wide-brimmed hats. These offer fantastic protection from the harsh rays of the sun.
Hats are also a fun accessory to have. They have become an integral part of everyday fashion. Whether they are some iconic hats and caps for women, or a woolen beanie, designed to keep your head warm, — their significance should not be overlooked. Donning hats and caps is not just a style statement — there are also several health benefits of wearing a hat.
Health benefits of wearing hats
Do you love the outdoors and enjoy hiking, trekking or going to the beach? Then you’ll want to ensure that you bring a hat along to prevent harsh sun burns caused by UV light. The ideal hats for outdoor activities feature wide brims to protect your face and the top of your head.
Save your hair
Your hair goes through a lot already. From pollution, poor nutrition, stress to cosmetics, there are a number of factors that already affect your hair. Saving your hair from sun damage on the other hand is easily achievable. Just get yourself a baseball cap, bucket hat or any hat that goes with your attire everytime you step out to protect your hair.
Protect your eyes
Have you ever been told to not look into the sun directly? That’s because long exposure to sunlight can damage your eyesight in the long run. Avoid risking eyesight impairment by wearing headwear, preferably a brimmed baseball cap that will shade your eyes from the sun’s glare.
Help regulate body temperature
Depending on the weather, hats can help to regulate the body temperature by keeping your head warm or cold. This is especially true in colder places where it is imperative to protect the head with the right head gear. With a hat over your head, you can ward off frostbites and hypothermia while looking extra cute!
Prevent excessive sun exposure
While a little bit of tan may look good on you, you should be extremely careful with how much time you spend under the sun. Too much exposure to sunlight can lead to skin discoloration, wrinkles and in the long term, even skin cancer. So don’t skimp out on hats and caps - they’re basically life savers!
- Hold your hair back neatly while exercising or playing
- Protect your scalp from sunburns
- Save your hair from the rain and wind
- Shield your eyes from the sun
Do hats work better than sunscreen?
It’s hard to say but why’d you want to risk exposure? If you use sunscreen regularly then wearing a hat couldn’t do any harm. It’s just another layer of protection. And if you’re not someone who uses sunscreen, then definitely wear a hat to protect your skin.
Does wearing a hat in the sun help?
It absolutely does! Any cap will protect your head from harmful effects of over exposure to the sun. And if you want more coverage, just choose a hat with a wide brim to provide shade to your head, ears, face and neck.Now that you know all the benefits of wearing a hat, it’s time to go shopping!
