I’m sure I’m not alone in being very religious in my approach to being safe in the sun. I hate the thought of damaging my skin and I always have a bottle of SPF50+ with me. Who’s with me?
But how do we protect our heads in the summer months when the sun is shining? Sure, we can protect our face with a high factor sun cream and sunglasses with UV protection but what about our scalp?
The scalp is one of the most sensitive parts on our body and protecting it can be tricky. Applying sun cream will make our roots oily, which is the exact opposite of the carefree summer look we’re going for. Right?
Enter a UPF hat. I always buy hats with a built in UPF of 50+. UPF stands for Ultraviolet Protection Factor (UPF) and signifies how an item of clothing can protect our skin from the sun’s harmful UV rays.
These are ideal for shielding my face and shoulders from the sun’s UV rays. I love the different colours and styles of these two. They instantly cool my face and make sure I’m fully protected!
