Why We Have To Wear Hats Outside in New Zealand

In New Zealand, we have to wear a hat outside because of the AVR rays that come from the Fun. Hats keep our neck, ears and facial feature safe from the harsh rays, also without a hat there is a high risk of Melanoma (Skin Cancer) when exposed.

The reason why UVR rays are so dangerous to New Zealand is because we are one of the closest countries to the Ozone layer and there is a break in the Ozone Layer because of the mass population today. Though the sun is strong through the ozone layer usually when there is a gap in it the rays of the sun become stronger, therefore increasing the risk of sunburn which then increases the risk of skin cancer which could lead to death, which no one wants…Also, you should always wear a hat especially during the time period of September to April, 10 am to 4 pm, be even more careful around 2:30 pm to 3:15 because that is the time period where the sun is at it's hottest.

Therefore you need to wear a hat to stay safe from the sun and reduce the risk of skin cancer and even though you have a hat on your head you can still have Sun and be safe at the same time. Remember to always stay safe and have fun in the sun...
