If baseball caps are your go-to accessory for sunny beach days, we have some bad news: since they only shield part of your face, baseball caps don't provide sufficient coverage from dangerous UV rays, which up your risk of developing skin cancer. A better option? Sun hats, which shade your entire face, ears, and the back of your neck. "The best sun hats have a tight weave and a three- to four-inch brim," Heidi Waldorf, MD, associate clinical professor of dermatology at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai Medical Center in New York City told Health in a previous interview. Whether you’re relaxing by the water or strolling through your local farmer’s market, here are the best sun hats to safeguard your skin this summer.
