How Car Window Tint Can Protects Me?

You know when you’re on a long trip, stuck on the sunny side, and your ear or your arm feels like it’s on fire? It may actually be harming you.

Here’s How It Works

Two main types of ultraviolet (UV) rays from the sun can cause DNA damage in your skin, even from brief exposures. The shorter UVB rays are the ones that cause sunburn, while the longer UVA rays cause tanning as well as skin aging and wrinkles. Over time, the damage from either or both types of rays can lead to skin cancer.

While glass blocks UVB rays pretty well, it doesn’t block UVA rays. Windshields are treated to shield drivers from some UVA, but side, back and sunroof windows usually aren’t. So when you’re in your car, you should protect yourself and your family from that sunlight shining through the glass.

The same holds true for windows on airplanes, trains and buses. Have you ever felt like you’re burning up sitting on the sunny side by an airplane window? Yes, you’re being bombarded by UVA up there, too, and maybe even more so because of being at high altitude. (Airline pilots and crew members tend to get more skin cancer than people in other professions.)

Travel Protection Tips:

1. About 90 percent of all holiday travel is by car, according to the Bureau of Transportation Statistics, so that’s where you’re probably getting the most exposure. Think sunscreen, protective clothing and sunglasses for all your family members before you load the luggage into the trunk. If you have babies, a hat and clothing are their best protection. You can start using sunscreen on them at the age of six months.

2. Be sure to look for the words “broad spectrum” on the sunscreen label to make sure the formula protects against UVA rays as well as UVB.

3. Consider installing Window Tint in your car for long-term peace of mind.
