Help keep yourself shielded from the sun with a hat from Dorfman Pacific

Did you know that this past month was Melanoma awareness month?  In case you do not know, Melanoma is a very serious form of skin cancers which affects one in five American's in their lifetime.  Because of this it's important that we shield our self from the sun as much as possible and one of the ways we can do this is by wearing  hats to protect our heads and face from harmful sun rays. It's easy finding  products to shield you from the sun, but it's not always easy to find stylish hats. Luckily, Dorfman Pacific has you covered when it comes to stylish hats!  

I was recently lucky enough to receive one of their floppy style hats to review.  I myself have not had a chance to go out in the sun very much this summer,  but one of my close friends is always in the sun , so I decided to let her have it because I knew she would get a lot of use out of it, and she sure has.  She received the black floppy hat, although it is also available in many other wonderful colors too.    She was kind enough to let me interview her about this hat and share her thoughts with us.

Question: What surprised you most about the hat?
Answer:  "I love how sturdy it feels".

Question: Where do you plan on wearing the hat?
Answer:   "To the beach and the pool"

Question: Are you aware that June is national skin cancer awareness month and that it is important to keep your skin shielded from the sun as much as possible? 
Answer:   "No, I was not aware of that, but I am sure my new hat will help me a great deal"

The LP157 floppy style brimmed hat provides fashion at the same time it provides you protection from the sun.  With Summer here and most people (notice I said "most people") out in the sun, this hat is the perfect choice from sun protection!  And, because it's totally collapsible you can easily toss it in your suit case to take with you on a vacation. 

Guess what?  Dorfman Pacific also released a LP54 Roll Up Visor that was actually featured in Oprah's O magazine as one of her favorite products!  It is available in four different colors and is also a great product to help shield yourself from the sun.  Oh, and did I mention that it contains a SPF sun protector level of 50 plus. Now if that isn't sun protection, I don't know what is!

Love the hat! It would be perfect to keep the hot Idaho sun off my face. My grandmother, bless her heart, had melanoma and lost a part of her nose to this cancer later in her life. Because of this I know just how important it is to keep skin shielded from the sun rays. Thanks for such a great awareness post :)

I needed this last week. We were in Kill Devil Hills NC at the beach. This would have been great.
