The sun has arrived after so many days! And a hat and a good sunscreen should always be our companions on our summer days, even if you live in the city.
After almost two weeks of rain, you are probably already planning how to take advantage of the last solar ray.

The problems caused by sunstroke are very diverse, from a heat stroke to diseases of the skin, and these have been becoming more common in recent years. However, prevention is simple and we should all do our best to avoid them as much as possible. That is why today we have for you the five types of hats that everyone should have in their closet, as well as tips to recognize and combine them.
Fedora: You will recognize this type of hat as the iconic accessory of Indiana Jones or the gangsters of the 50’s movies.
