SPF Yourself: D&Y Floppy Hat.

SPF Yourself is a series of posts featuring products that contain a sunscreen, or SPF, in them. Not only sunscreens, but body lotions, facial moisturizers, eye creams, foundations, tinted moisturizers, bronzers, hair care and more will be featured. Only the best in beauty with SPF!

Today's SPF Yourself is a bit different as this item is beautiful, but really not a beauty product. It does belong in the feature though, because it protects my face, neck and chest from the sun, and that's pretty much the point, right? What am I speaking of? I am speaking about a pretty floppy hat from the D&Y Sun Collection Series. Look how cute!

This hat is part of the D&Y Sun Collection Series and has been certified by an independent laboratory to have a rating of UPF (Ultraviolet Protection Factor) 50+. Unlike SPF that measures only UVB rays, UPF measures both UVA and UVB rays. UPF 50 is considered the ultimate in UV sun protection. I put it to the test.  I wore it in the yard while planting some flowers and then relaxing outside having lunch.  I used no extra sunscreen except for the one that was in the dily moisturizer I used that morning.  I am happy to report that my face, neck and chest were fully protected from the sun. I won't be going to the beach or pool without it this summer, for sure.

These carefully crafted, form-fitting, high fashion hats can be worn as part of a regimen to protect against the effects of the sun, including premature wrinkling and sunburn.Check out all the different styles online at davidandyoungaccessories.com.
