Protect your skin from harmful UV rays
In some countries, women use parasols to protect themselves from the harsh sunlight especially during the summer months. In the Philippines, we use umbrellas. And what’s the difference between a parasol and an umbrella? In construction, they are the same. The difference is in the material. Some parasols are not waterproof.
I’m not an umbrella person because I like to keep both hands free. I prefer wide-brimmed hats during the summer and raincoats during the rainy season. But if parasols are as pretty as these Mulan-inspired creations — I might just reconsider. Found at SM Megamall.
