There is a great deal of interest these days in doing what is possible to live a healthy lifestyle. From things like exercise to being more conscious about what types of foods you eat. The organic food industry has grown significantly as people understand the negative impact that certain things can have on their overall health. Like most things, good choices come from having the correct information. Mr. Tint would like to share some good information about healthy lifestyle choices as it relates to sun exposure and how window films can help.
Most people understand the risks and dangers of overexposing their skin to the sun’s UV rays. However, many are unaware of how often they receive exposure to UV rays. Subjecting yourself without proper protection can lead to premature aging of the skin and the potential for skin cancer. While you are enjoying the outside, you are likely wearing protective clothing and some type of sunscreen. However, many don’t consider the exposure you get in your car or sitting beside the windows at work and at home. Most people don’t consider that they are still getting exposure to the same harmful UV even though they are inside.
How Can Window Film Help?
That is where window film becomes part of a healthy lifestyle. Window films have The Skin Cancer Foundation‘s Seal of Recommendation. This is what they had to say in a recent article:
“While it’s understood that taking sun safety precautions is important outside, few people realize they can sustain sun damage indoors, too. While both ultraviolet A (UVA) and ultraviolet B (UVB) radiation from the sun can harm the skin and lead to skin cancers, glass can effectively block UVB. However, at least 50 percent of UVA rays can pass through windows. Window film is an increasingly effective solution, offering substantial indoor protection by blocking up to 99.9 percent of UVA radiation. Although they are less intense than UVB, UVA rays are 30 to 50 times more prevalent and are present with relatively equal intensity during all daylight hours throughout the year. Window film can help prevent harmful UVA rays from damaging your skin.”
