What are the 2 things all hikers need to stay protected from the sun’s harmful rays?
Over 90% of all skin cancers are because of sun exposure, and I don’t want to be another skin cancer victim. Plus, UV rays are especially high in areas where I like to explore: snow, sand, water, and high altitudes!
- A UPF rated broad brimmed hiking hat
- Broad spectrum sun block
Hiking Lady’s Favorite Essential Sun Protection Gear:
|Wallaroo Capetown Hat: Australian’s know the importance of UV protection due to the harsh rays in the land down under. It’s no wonder that they developed a very practical yet stylish UPF 50+ rated hat, the Wallaroo Capetown. It is very lightweight, has a 3 inch brim in front, and 4.25 inch brim in the back, providing excellent coverage of your face and neck from the sun. The chin strap helps keep it in place on windy hikes. Learn more about these hats at wallaroohats.com.|
|trilipiderm Broad Spectrum SPF 30 with Vitamin D: This sunblock goes on smoothly and it doesn’t make you smell like you’re headed to the beach. What is nice is that it also has Vitamin D, which apparently can help restore the Vitamin D that your body needs to remain healthy, all while blocking out most UVA and UVB rays.
