Wear hats and shades this summer!

I wish people would not look at people wearing summer Ladies Hats like they were weird because these are actually practical accessories in our sunny, sunny country!

With the amount of UV rays we are receiving, and especially during the summer months, we ophthalmologists are forever telling people to protect their eyes from the sun by wearing sunglasses with UV protection and also hats.  I know dermatologists are also telling their patients to wear sunblock.  Wide brimmed hats will also protect the face by keeping it in the shadows so to speak. Bonus for white skin loving Pinoys is that skin will be less likely to darken with such protection.

However, the wearing of hats is simply not trendy here yet.  I wish some celebrity will start the trend so that other people will follow suit, if only in the name of nakikiuso (keeping up with the trend).
