Is the Sun Hat You Wear Really Protecting Your Skin?

I am always a little in shock when out for my morning walk and the variety of hats I see and don’t see for that matter. It would be hard with all the marketing and advertising not to be aware of sun precaution and the notion of whether or not to wear sunscreen or protective clothing to protect your skin from the sun’s harmful UVA and UVB rays. What I am most surprised to see is the large number of women who are still wearing baseball caps and think they are protecting their face! The only thing a baseball hat protects is the top of you head and if you are lucky most of your forehead. What about the rest of your face? Your cheeks, nose, ears, and neck? Most hats do very little to protect your face from the reflection of the sun off surfaces? Yes, I am sure most of you are going to tell me that you use a good sunscreen and that’s a good thing, but unless you are using a 30 SPF+ you might not be getting the protection you think. THERE IS NO SUNSCREEN ON THE MARKET THAT PROTECTS YOUR SKIN 100% FROM THE UVA RAYS THAT PENETRATE DEEP INTO THE DERMIS LAYER OF THE SKIN. THIS IS WHERE ALL THE SERIOUS DAMAGE TAKES PLACE AND CAN SHOW UP YEARS LATER! Sorry, but I have several friends who told me all about the sunscreens they used and I have watched over the years (they are now turning 40, 50, and 60) and their skin now looks old, leathery, full of dark brown spots, lots of wrinkles, and they look older then they are- Yikes! Why do women spend so much money on skin care products and treatments if they are going right back out in the sun without a good sun hat that really offers sun protection?

Living in Hawaii I see all sorts of contraptions women are creating to protect their faces, such as full frontal visor like mask that cover their entire face, towels pinned or tied around their face/neck and then a hat put on top, or trying to carry an umbrella and wear a hat. I used to be one of these ladies trying to wear whatever I could to protect my face from aging UVA and UVB rays when outdoors. There was another problem, what do I do when I am driving my car or I am on a boat for sun protection? This is when I went to work and was determined to design, create, whatever you want to call it the best and most attractive sun hat which would be versatile and stylish for any outdoor activity-driving your car, golfing, boating, walking the dog, biking, windsurfing, or spectator sports. *Keep in mind the sun is damaging winter summer spring and fall and even on a cloudy day those UVA and UVB rays will age and damage your skin

A good sunhat has at least a 3.5-4”brim and is made from fabric that has been tested and has a label that shows UPF 50+ and that is what 99% of the hats out there offer. But what about the sides of my face, my mouth nose, ears, and neck…What will protect them? The answer is the ETSIS Hat, the best sun hat on the market for anti aging and full sun protection. What makes our sun hats so different? First, not only are they stylish and versatile, they come with snap-in and snap-out SunEscape Protection Panels so you can determine how much protection you need or want. All of our SunEscape Protection Panels are rated the highest rating of UPF 50+ so you can be assured that both your face and neck area are protected! The SunEscape Protection panels are made from a bamboo fabric, which is known to be cooler in the summer months and warmer in the winter months. We tested over 70 fabrics to come up with the best fabric for both warm and cold climates. The bottom line is that there is no other hat that offers such a unique and stylish concept when it comes to protecting your skin from the sun such as the ETSIS Hat.

Some individuals with conditions such as Melasma, Rosacea, Lupus, or have just had a laser treatment, chemical peel, or cosmetic surgery will want to take full advantage of what the ETSIS Hat has to offer for sun protection. Millions, yes millions of women and men are ending up at the doctor’s office to have some pre-cancerous spot removed, an IPL or Chemical peel to reverse the sun’s damage, or in the worst case scenario have just been diagnosed with skin cancer. Did you know that most skin cancer is on the left side of your face from driving in your car? Your typical sun hat no matter how large the brim will not protect your face completely from the reflection from the sun’s light and seriously you can’t wear a 7-inch brim hat when driving or doing sports.

I hope that the next time you are looking for a great sun hat you will turn to ETSIS Hats for real sun protection and real results for beautiful, healthy, and younger looking skin. Please see our YouTube video for the many versatile ways that you can wear your ETSIS Hat. Save your skin and look ten years younger when you practice real sun precaution by ETSIS!
