We all know that the most important way to prevent skin cancer is to protect your skin from the harmful effects of the sun. But did you know that the cap that you are wearing only protects the top half of your forehead and provides very little protection from the sun for the rest of your face and neck?
Unlike a baseball or golf cap, bucket hats have a wide brim that goes all around the hat. This provides much better protection from the sun than a cap. A bucket hat will protect areas of your head from exposure to the sun such as your nose and the sides of your face that just do not get covered by a cap. While sunblock does offer protection, it only lasts for two hours and even less if you are sweating and wiping your face. A cap and sunblock are not as much protection as you might think!
Don't forget your neck. Your neck skin is very sensitive and burns easily, especially the skin on the back of your neck. If you are out in the sun wearing a t-shirt and cap, you will likely end up with a sunburn on the back of your neck from just above the top of your shirt to your hair line. And for children and young adults, the amount of sun exposure during youth is thought to increase the risk of developing skin cancer in adult life. The protection of a wide-brimmed bucket hat covers your face and the front and back of your neck. For sun protection, a bucket hat is much better than a cap.
Bucket hats come in many shapes and styles. Bucket hats with neck flaps provide extra protection from the sun, wind, and rain. They also look extremely stylish. The Uvoider UV Explorer Hat is a bucket hat with a neck flap and many other features for comfort and wear-ability including an Eyewear Grip™ to secure glasses in place.
