Skin Cancer  Protection with Window Films

When it comes to our health and protecting ourselves from harm, we usually think of damage that can be done to our inner organs and bones. How often do we think about protecting our skin, especially when we are inside? Did you know that every day your skin is being subjected to harmful ultraviolet rays that can cause damage over a long period time? One serious result of constant exposure to harmful ultraviolet rays produced by the sun is skin cancer.

Skin cancer occurs when damage to skin cells causes growths of abnormal cells such as mutations and genetic defects. This then causes the cells to multiply at a rapid pace which cause malignant tumors to form. Currently in the United States, skin cancer is the most common form of cancer that affects over two million people. The current statistic given by the Skin Cancer Foundation is that 1 in 5 Americans will develop this form of cancer during their lifetime. While skin cancer is one of the easiest forms of cancers to diagnose and treat, it can still be deadly. Another scary statistic from the Skin Cancer Foundation is that one person dies of melanoma, a form of skin cancer, about every hour.

There are plenty of ways to help protect your skin from UV rays. Limiting your time in the sun is extremely helpful and wearing sunblock whenever going out is beneficial. During the summer months, swimming is an almost daily activity for some individuals. If you are going to be spending time in water while being out in the sun, or even sweating consistently, make sure to reapply sunblock to protect your skin. Another way to help your skin daily is to install UV protecting window films from American Solar Tinting.
