Love Your Skin! - Skin Cancer and How Window Film Helps - Home, Business and Automotive Window Tint and Window Film in Kansas City.While most people understand the risks and dangers of overexposing their skin to the sun’s UV rays, many are unaware of how much of these rays they are being exposed to. 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, did you ever think about the exposure you are getting in your car or sitting beside windows at work and in your home? Most people don’t consider that they are still getting exposed to the same harmful UV even though they are inside.

That is where skin cancer awareness and how window film is associated come together. Window films have been given The Skin Cancer Foundation‘s Seal of Recommendation. This is what they had to say in recent articles:

“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, UVB is effectively blocked by glass. 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.”

Window films can help protect your skin from harmful UV rays whether you are in the car, relaxing at home or working in an office.
