Fighting Skin Cancer

Window Tinting Helps with the Fight Against Cancer

If you think the only time you have to put on some sunscreen is when you’re heading out for a day at the beach, you are sadly mistaken. Your skin is your body’s first line of defense and the largest organ of your body. It’s important for you to take proper care of it – not only outdoors, but also indoors. Though it may seem like we are safe in our homes with roofs and windows to shield us from the sun, we are not. Bare windows still allow harmful UV rays to pass through and endanger our skin. With window tint, however, we are protected from up to 99.9% of UV rays so we can enjoy relaxing in our homes and offices without worrying about constantly applying sunscreen.

 

How Window Tinting Contributes to Protecting Us From Cancer

As our ozone layer slowly depletes, the sun becomes more dangerous. We spend more time in air conditioned rooms than ever before, and as a result are unable to stand sunny weather quite as well. With window tint, you can be protected all year round from those dangerous UV rays that cause up to 85% of melanomas and 90% of other types of skin cancer.

 

Besides reducing your risk of cancer, window film reduces glare by half while still allowing beautiful natural light in through your windows. Your eyes will be in better health, thanks to window film. We may not feel the sun damaging our bodies, but it is. With window tint, we can enjoy life while staying safe.

 

Window Tint for Cars

Although the windscreen of your car is tinted, your side and rear windows are probably not. This means that you are still leaving yourself vulnerable during your commute. If your commute is long, this could mean dangerous repercussions. Have quality window tint applied to your car to ensure that you stay safe during your drive and don’t put yourself at risk for skin cancer, skin aging, and other dangerous conditions.

 

Window Tint for Buildings

If you work or live in a building with lots of natural light, I’ll bet one of your favorite areas in the space is the area near the window where you can sit and enjoy the view. As pleasant as this may be, harmful UV rays are constantly penetrating the glass and damaging your skin, even when it isn’t bright outside. With tinted windows, you can enjoy the view without putting yourself as much at risk for skin diseases. There are a great variety of films you can choose from – there’s sure to be something that fits your needs.

 

I’m sure you don’t want to slather on sunscreen every morning and don sunglasses and a hat just to stay home. However, you also probably don’t want to risk your health. With window tint, you can enjoy the interior of your home stress-free. It’s also great for people who suffer from photosensitivity as a side effect of things like lupus or xeroderma pigmentosa. The cost is worth your health.
