The one thing that every single dermatologist has recommended to us is sunscreen. Hands down, it is the most important thing you can do for your skin. It can be lifesaving, and is the best anti-aging treatment there is.
There are more ways than putting on a lotion, spray or cream to help protect your skin from sun damage. Being careful about what time of day you are outside, avoiding the heat of the day (12-3 pm for most of us), is a smart idea. Another form of protection is wearing a hat. We love this, because we love hats in general!! In the summer, our must-have items are sunscreen, sunglasses and a hat. Growing up in the now “infamous” days of sunbathing with baby oil on your face, head tilted up towards the sun, has caused irreparable damage to the skin of millions of people in Alison’s generation.
The Style That Binds Us team has spent a lot of time on the lookout for the perfect selection of summer hats to share with you. We did the work so you don’t have to! You will find a wide assortment of styles; keep in mind that a narrow face needs a wider brimmed hat, and the size of a hat shouldn’t overwhelm a petite person! You can watch the TSTBU video with Gig Burris about the finding the right shape hat for your face here!
Included in the selection are hats across several price points. The more expensive hats are handmade, using artisan techniques, and would be lifelong investments-objects to treasure. However, if you aren’t interested in spending a month’s rent, there are some very chic options at a more comfortable price point as well!
If you decide to purchase one of these hats, we invite you to take a photo wearing the hat, and send it to The Style That Binds Us, either through Instagram direct message (@thestylethatbindsus), Facebook messenger, or by email: firstname.lastname@example.org. We will share on The Style That Binds Us Instagram and Facebook stories! We love showing off our beautiful TSTBU family!!!
Cheers to a glorious summer, celebrating life and remembering that even in the face of Covid, summer arrived just as usual, bringing with her balmy, magical, lazy days and sultry, moon washed nights. We hope you can soak up every drop!
