Finding a hat that fits (I have a small head), looks good on me and truly protects my face from the sun is not always easy, but I found one very recently. Its wide brim, chic style and UV protective material not only fits perfectly, but I think it also looks good on. Since I suffer from Discoid Lupus, proper protection from the sun's rays is very important. I confess I've gone hatless for too long because of the usually wrong fit and/or style.
About 24 years ago I was diagnosed with Discoid Lupus, and auto-immune disorder that affects the skin. Proper protection via sunscreen and hat wear is extremely important. Although I religiously apply sunscreen lotions to my face, especially my nose (where I tend to get lesions), I often go without a hat because I've never found the perfect one. A baseball cap is too sporty to wear to client meetings and it really doesn't provide enough all around shading. So, you can just imagine my delight when I came across this hat by Eric Javits. It fits perfectly, it's stylishly sophisticated and I believe it was designed just for ME. I'm now trying my best to carry it everywhere and wear it as often as I would a pair of sunglasses for all the same reasons.
What do you think? Do you like it?
