Sun Hats for Summer

Book An Appointment

It’s simple; you need to wear a hat when you’re in the sun. Combine your hat with a really good sunscreen and a pair of UV-blocking sunglasses and you’re ready to bring on the sun!

Not just any hat will do, though.

You need to wear a proper sun hat when you are in the sun.

Don’t fool yourself with a ball cap or visor; those are our  “job security.” Look at your skin. If you’ve been wearing a ball cap or visor for years, then you may see that the sides of your face and the sides and back of your neck show more signs of damage than your forehead and nose. Do you see more wrinkles and uneven pigment? Is this where your doctor finds more suspicious lesions? Maybe you’ve even had precancerous or cancerous growths treated here. It’s from the sun and it’s a testament to the inadequacy of the much-loved ball caps and visors. Those are just for evening and indoor use – when you’re outside in the sun, you need a proper sun hat to protect your face, neck, and eyes.

What do you need for the perfect, dermatologist-approved sun hat?

Your hat needs to:

  • Have a full brim measuring 3 to 5 inches.
  • Be made of material that the sun’s rays can’t penetrate.
  • Cover your scalp.

To keep yourself covered, you’re going to need:

  1. A crush-able hat to roll up to pack quickly into your bag when you’re on the go.
  2. A good-looking casual hat to wear while you run errands around town, when you head to the farmer’s market or a picnic, when you are on a tour, while you watch an outdoor game, or when you attend a backyard barbeque.
  3. A breathable, high-performance hat to wear when you’re sweaty and working hard gardening, hiking, running, golfing, playing tennis, bike riding, or kayaking.
  4. A dressy hat to wear to fancy outdoor events like weddings, parties, and dressy outdoor social events.
