The Benefits of Straw Hats
The Straw Hat / The great protector by; glenn mast
Straw hats can be both a style statement as well as a practical purchase. Originally made to keep the sun out of people's eyes in work-settings, this particular style of headwear is now vastly popular for those relaxing at the beach or working in the garden or yard, as well as those out and about around town during the summer months. These hats now come in a variety of shapes, sizes, and styles and, therefore can be as quirky, elegant, or practical as you want them to be. They are a comfortable way to keep your face out of the sun without making you unbearably hot. The way that these hats are constructed leaves enough ventilation so that air can get through and keep you not only protected but cool as well.
You want great protection for your skin, a reason being skin cancer.
Skin cancer might be a direct result of the rising UV index these days, and thus, your skin needs to be guarded against the sun at all times, because now that the sun is stronger, people need to sit up and take notice.
It is a fact that skin cancer is on a rise these days, and it mostly affects those who are spending most of their time traveling or out in the sun. Dermatologists have always insisted upon the use of a good sunscreen lotion while venturing out in the sun. Most people hold the belief that skin cancer will result only if your skin suffers from bad sunburns. Well, that myth has been exploded. You can suffer from skin cancer without any visible symptoms of sunburns.
A few pointers on how to maintain a healthy lifestyle, and cut down on the risk of skin cancer! All you need to do is get into a habit of using certain preventive measures:
1. Apply a good sun-block every morning before leaving the house. That includes your face, arms, neck, your ears and shoulders.
2. Wear straw hats. It is essential to cover up your head- it not only protects your hair from being sun bleached, it will also help keep your face in the shade. Whether you are just out for a walk or pottering about in the garden- a sun hat is a must for everybody. A hat with a wide brim will prevent pre mature wrinkling, as well as prevent freckles from appearing on your face, neck and shoulders.
A hat constructed of breathable fibers that will allow your perspiration to dry up will suit you better in humid weather.
Moreover, it is easy to clean straw hats: you would need nothing more than water and some mild detergent! As for proper storage of the hat, ensure that the brim doesn't lose its shape by keeping it in an upside down manner.
One of the best things about straw hats is that they expertly mix style and functionality. Although wide brimmed hats come in many different shapes and in virtually every color of the rainbow, they play an important part in keeping one cool during the hot summer months and in shielding the face from the harsh and damaging UV rays of the sun. The larger the hat, the more sun protection:
