Hats - A Beauty Weapon

Aug 15, 2018 - By Dr. Martin Kassir

Hats can be a fantastic accessory, and also a great beauty tool.  Hats can add flare to any stylish look, and double as a shield to protect your skin and hair from harmful Ultraviolet (UV) rays.  Hats can offer mild to full coverage, which can be great protection.  Wearing a hat is one of the best ways to prevent the sun's harmful UV rays from breaking down your hair color, drying your hair out, or aging your skin. Depending on your hat size, you could be protecting yourself from sun damage on your neck, ears, and chest area, as well as keeping you a bit cooler by providing shade.Using a hat daily is ideal as it can help keep your skin looking younger by protecting it from the elements.  Hats can help reduce eye squinting which could lead to possible wrinkling around the eye area.  When hats are worn, you have more coverage than just using sunscreen alone.   Having a large selection of big, wide brimmed hats can be an easy and long time investment in your skin and hair health.  Having a tough time figuring out if your hat selection is providing enough protection?  Call our Dallas office to see if we can answer some of your questions, or customize a treatment plan for improving your skin!
