Summer vacation is a time for kids to have fun, but at the same time the sun’s rays are so strong and we all know that exposure to UV radiation can cause numerous health problems in the short and long term. One of the easiest methods to protect against the sun’ rays is by wearing sun-protective clothing, especially hats, with a UPF rating of 50+.
The SPF rating of sunscreen is well-known by most people, which indicates how well it protects you from the sun’s harmful rays. While you need to reapply the sunscreen every two hours, especially after swimming and sweating. In addition, sunscreen often only blocks UVB rays. On the other hand, the UPF rating used to describe sun-protective clothing protects against both UVA and UVB rays. Sun-protective clothing can provide protection all day long and usually lasts for the lifetime of the clothing. In addition, newborns can wear sun-protective clothing, while infants under six months are not recommended to apply sunscreen.
The easiest and safest way to protect your kids from the sun is to wear a wide-brimmed hat with a UPF rating of 50+, such as a baby bucket hat. This hat also provides convenient features, such as crushable brim, adjustable chin cord and washable material to make your baby’s hat easier to take care of. Since the face, ears and neck are the most exposed areas which can develop skin cancer, a high-quality hat is important for your children to enjoy their outdoor adventures.
To protect your child from the sun, choose a wide-brimmed hat that can cover their face, neck and ears. A breathable, waterproof, stain-proof hat is much better than a normal hat, and it helps kids through almost any warm-weather adventures. If it is rainy, you can also choose a hat that protects from the sun but also breathable and waterproof, with a detachable chin strap and customizable size band.
Whether at the pool or the beach, there’s nothing better than enjoying the water on a hot day. Kids definitely enjoy it, but playing in the water usually exposes more skin, so choosing a hat features an extra wide brim and with a UPF rating of 50+ will give them extra protection. You can give your child a beach hat to add style to outdoor water sports while also protecting your child from the harmful UV rays. It is also important to consider the harmful glare of the sun off of the water’s surface. Choose a hat with a dark under brim to reduce glare and protect their eyes from ultraviolet radiation.
Not only does a good hat protect kids from the sun, it’s also easy to be packed and you can easily bring it with you wherever you go. For kids, fun bucket hats have crushable brims that can be easily stuffed into a backpack or diaper bag. The hat is waterproof and breathable, with a UPF rating of 50+. The bucket hat is made of comfortable material which makes your kids feel comfortable.
