With Summer fast approaching, it is important that everyone keeps themselves safe from the harmful rays of the sun. Even on cloudy days, the sun's UV radiation can penetrate through and harm your skin. An Emthunzini or 360FIVE Everyday sun hat is the ideal solution!
The radiation from the sun is known as Ultraviolet Radiation (UV). There are two main types of radiation from the sun: UVA and UVB. Both types of light can cause damage if they reach your skin when exposed to the sun.
UVA rays penetrate the deepest layers of your skin, and are responsible for premature aging and wrinkles. UVB rays are the ones we can feel, which cause nasty sunburn.
Regular sunburn can cause lasting damage over time. Sun exposure increases your risk of skin cancers which is why you should always wear sunscreen and your UPF50+ sun protective hat, even on cloudy days.
Children are very sensitive to sun burns, and a bad sun burn can increase your child's risk of skin cancer later in life. With a UPF50+ sun hat you can be confident all day long knowing your child's skin is protected.
