Brimmed Hat = Sun Protection {Dorfman Pacific #Review}

Y’all I have got to say that I loved the sun just a little too much when I was a teenager and now I’m paying for it.  The feeling of warmth on my skin and that lovely sunkissed golden glow I gained, were all I was thinking about, not how much damage I would face as I got older.  Have you ever had a moment where you wish you could go back in time and tell your younger self something that could change your life?  Well, I would tell myself to avoid tanning oil, wear high SPF and a hat!!I’ve already faced dark spots and pre-cancerous moles and I’m thirty-something.  If you could see me right now, the look of dread is upon me as I wonder what the years ahead hold.  On the bright side, I purchase and use quality sunblocks these days, and am sure to wear a hat when I’m out in the sun, so hopefully I’ll avoid future damage.  I don’t want to avoid the sun completely, after all it is noted as the best source for vitamin D, which I’m low on, so I’m looking for ways to allow me to enjoy the sun in a protected manor.  Dorfman Pacific is helping me do this with the brimmed hat they sent me.
