The sun is shining bright in the Carolinas. Even with ample sunscreen, I need some added protection (and relief) from the intense rays of our southern blue skies.

When the temperatures rise around here, I reach for a short sleeve shirt in white, lightweight challis pants….and a hat! For comfort and protection, I choose a natural fiber, wide brimmed that washes and packs with ease.  Research shows that SPF 30 sunscreen plus a protectant hat minimize the negative impact of strong rays on our skin. Given that our faces need the most tender love and care, wide brimmed hats are a fantastic option for added protection!
