There’s nothing like working in the garden to find the stress rolling off your shoulders. The sound of the birds singing, the gentle breeze blowing, the sweet scent of flowers and the sight of vegetables growing is enough to make the anxieties melt away.
But there is something you do have to be on the lookout for when you’re gardening. You must be on your guard and protect yourself from getting a nasty sunburn.
Most people are careful enough to make sure they use a sunblock on their face – especially on the nose area, which is sunburned most often. However, what some people fail to realize is that being out in the sun and sweating can quickly negate the protective effects of any sunblock.
Since you don’t want to constantly have to pause your gardening activities to go lather up on sunscreen, you’ll want to wear a sun hat. Besides protecting your face from the sun, a hat will also protect your scalp as well as the back of your neck.
But you’ll want to get a good one that’s wide brimmed. One of the popular ones is the Sloggers 442DB01 Women’s Wide Brim Braided Sun Hat with Wind Lanyard. This hate comes in a lovely dark brown color so it looks good while being useful at the same time.
It does have a UPF rating of 50+ which means it gives you the top of the line protection from the sun. You can garden free of the worry that the sun is damaging your skin.
The hat band is top quality so that you get the best possible fit for your head as well as the best in comfort. The hat is one of the most popular ones on the market but it’s made for medium to smaller head sizes.
So if you have a larger head circumference, you’ll need to order one for that fit. The hat does come with a wind lanyard. So if a quick breeze blows the hat off your head, you won’t have to worry about chasing it across the yard before you’re able to capture it.
This lanyard is wide enough to sit comfortably against your neck if you choose to let the hat dangle down your back at times. The wide brimmed front of the hat offers shading for your eyes as well as protects your face from the sun.
Even though the brim is wide, you won’t find it blocking your vision or losing its shape and suddenly falling into your eyes. You can wear the hat all day while working in the garden if you like but it’s also pretty and stylish enough to be used as a fashion accessory if you want to do that.
