With their comfort, style, and protection against harmful sun rays, straw hats are the perfect accessory for beach lovers. Are you looking for fashionable ways to protect your skin from the sun while enjoying the beach? Protecting your skin from premature aging with designer hats for the beach has never been easier than with Eric Javits. 

Benefits of Fashionable Beach Hats

Wearing a hat while at the beach provides many uses for happy beach-goers. 

Protection From The Sun

Not only are straw hats for the beach fashionable and comfortable, but they also benefit your health. The last thing anyone wants after a relaxing and fun day at the beach is to face the consequences of harsh UV rays from the sun. The sun's rays are detrimental to your health as repeated exposure can cause melanoma and additional forms of skin cancer. A lack of protection at the beach can irritate your skin with sunburns and strain your eyes. Cover your eyes, facial skin, ears, and the skin on your neck with tasteful designer hats.

They Improve Your Visibility

Prevent premature wrinkles and unnecessary eyestrain by wearing a hat out under the sun. The sun is a bright ball in the sky, so naturally, your eyes squint to adjust to its natural glare. Protect your eyes by accessorizing with hats at the beach. 

Regulate Body Temperature

Depending on the time of year, the beach can be scorching due to the sand's density and heat capacity. Sand absorbs sunlight and heats up quickly. While you're having fun at the beach, maintain your body's ideal temperature with hats at the beach. Straw hats protect your head from the sun's rays ensuring your body remains cool in the heat. 

The Brim

Provide fashion and functionality at the beach with a wider-brim sun hat. Three inches is a good measurement to provide protection to your face while showing off your style. The sun's rays strike from more than above your form. Sun is light; therefore, it reflects off surfaces around you. A straw hat is a valuable asset to stop the sun's rays from hitting your face.

The Materials

Besides the structural shape of your straw hat, the materials that make up your hat also vary in how much they protect you from the sun. Eric Javits provides high-quality designer hats for you to choose from that offer excellent protection against UV rays. 

The Color

Did you know that the color of your straw hat plays a vital role in how much protection it offers you? Lighter-colored caps reflect the sun's harsh rays, and darker-colored straw hats absorb that light. Neither color is better than the other, and both have great benefits. Reflection keeps your body cool in the hot sun while darker hats take extra care to absorb those rays so they won't touch your face. 

Types of Fashionable Hats To Wear At the Beach

There are many types of straw hats to compliment your outfit at the beach. Eric Javits provides high-quality designer hats to wear outdoors.
