The skin cancer foundation recommends window tint be incorporated into any comprehensive skin protection program. This suggestion is often surprising to people, as while everyone knows that sunscreen and outdoor sun protection are key for healthy skin, it is generally assumed that your skin is safe from the sun’s rays once you are indoors. While sunscreen, covering up, and staying in the shade are key to outdoor sun protection, window tinting works wonders for indoor sun protection. In order to learn more about how window tinting offers complete protection for both you and your loved ones, read on.
Protection In Your Home
High performance window tinting offers all day protection which can help prevent skin cancer long term. As many more serious forms of skin cancer can be difficult to treat, this is a health necessity. Window tinting is a non-invasive, easy, quick, and cost-effective way to provide the interior of your home with sun protection. In fact, window tints can block more than 99% of the harmful UV rays which cause cancer.
Sun Damage Facts
Damage from most types of ultraviolet rays is cumulative, meaning that most people hardly realize that the damage from the sun is occurring at the time. UVA rays from the sun, however, can have serious effects on your health and skin. They penetrate deeply into the skin and can accelerate aging, cause wrinkles, and even lead to skin cancer over time. While harmful UVB rays cause blistering, burns, and the visible effects of sun poisoning, UVA rays are just as damaging long term. Sitting near a window for a long time, even one by your desk at work is enough to cause significant damage over time, making window tinting incredibly important for overall health.
