Hats are an important part of everyday fashion. Whether it be the iconic American baseball cap or a wool beanie designed to keep your head warm, the significance of a comfortable, stylish hat should not go overlooked.
Besides making a fashion statement, there are several health benefits of wearing a hat. Here’s a look at a few.
1. Hats Prevent Sunburn
Enjoying a warm sunny day outside? Whether you’re jogging, hiking or just going to run some errands, you’ll want to make sure that you bring a hat along with you to prevent too much exposure to the sun. Wearing a baseball cap or a broad sun hat can help prevent painful sunburn caused by exposure to UV light in the sun’s rays. The best running hats feature wide brims to shade your face as well as the top of your head when you’re outdoors.
2. Hats Can Help You See Better
Protecting your eyes is just as important as protecting your skin. On a bright, sunny day, a brimmed baseball cap can help to shield your eyes from the harsh rays of sunlight. Prolonged sun exposure to the eyes can lead to vision damage such as cataracts later in life. And in the short term, a hat offers a little extra shade from the sun’s bright glare.
But it’s not only during the daytime when a hat can help you see. Special LED lighted hats like the Panther Vision POWERCAP® are designed with a powerful built-in flashlight that can help light up the night around you. The POWERCAP® comes in both a baseball cap and a fleece LED headlamp beanie. Both styles are perfect to fit any occasion from working on a car outdoors as the evening winds down to going for a nighttime walk.
3. Hats Help Regulate Your Body Temperature
Your head is the most important part of the body when it comes to regulating your body’s temperature. In hot weather, wearing a hat can block the sun’s UV rays, which helps to keep your body temperature lower. Adversely, in cold weather, a hat can help your body preserve heat.
