How to protect your face from the harsh rays of the sun.

How to protect your face from the harsh rays of the sun.

We all know by now that protecting yourself from the sun during outdoor activities is one of the most important things to do for yourself. What are the best ways to avoid sun damage to your skin? Well, staying out of the sun is the best way, but if you live your life outdoors ... this is simply not an option.

Wide brim hats are a natural thought to protect your face from direct sunlight. Sun screen lotions and creams are also available, but a study from the Journal of the American Medical Association discovered that the two most common sunscreen ingredients, octinoxate, and oxybenzone, quickly enter/absorb into our bloodstream and damages our DNA. The state of Hawaii and the entirety of Australia have already banned these ingredients as they also have been found to damage the delicate life of our coral reefs.

UPF sun protecting clothing is another way to go when you are out and about enjoying the great outdoors. Sailing, biking, hiking, hitting the beach working in the garden it’s always a good idea to use some kind of sun protection. A neck gaiter also known as a buff is a perfect light weight sun scarf that can be used in any outdoor activity. It fits loosely around your neck when not needed and can easily be pulled up over your nose to protect your face and even your ears from those harmful rays while being breathable and light weight.

Montauk Tackle’s sun scarves are made out of lightweight American made fabrics that utilize 50+UPF sun protection technology that is infused into the yarn. Doing so makes the sun protection permanent in each scarf which means it will not wash out, it will not absorb into your skin and it will not stop working for the lifecycle of the garment.

Each men’s and women’s sun protecting shirts are also cut from the same smart fabrics as their scarves and include moisture wicking, soil release and antimicrobial technologies.
