How often do you think about protecting yourself from the sun?
This question varies quite a bit depending on how often you go outside, whether or not you work from home and even your personal skincare regimen. The sun provides us with healthy vitamin D, contributing to our strong bones, clear skin and emotional health. Too much sun, however, can start causing the opposite effect. A professional window tint can do wonders for protecting you from UV rays while keeping your budget low. After all, would you rather invest in a proefssional window tint film or constantly buy protective sunscreens and sunhats to stave off exposure?
UV rays can be damaging to your health when left unchecked. Let’s see what a professional safety window film can do.
Skin care is more important than ever. Due to the weakening ozone layer and still widespread misconceptions about the nature of UV rays many are suffering from the aftermath of too much sun exposure. This can result in tired, wrinkled skin at best and skin cancer at the very worst. There are a plethora of ways to protect from the sun and it’s highly recommended by you invest in as many as possible to keep yourself healthy. Even cloudy days require some protection!
An easy way to reduce your exposure to the sun is…reduce your exposure to the sun! Staying inside during mid-afternoon when the sun is at its highest peak will keep you from being hit with the worst UV rays have to offer, particularly if you live in one to two season areas. This means running errands earlier or later in the day, though if you can’t avoid going outside in the afternoon you can bring along a sunhat and long sleeves. Avoiding sun exposure in the day-to-day will drastically reduce your chances of being diagnosed with skin cancer years down the road. A decorative window tint will only help.
Your sunscreen should be broad spectrum and loaded with ingredients proven to turn away UV rays. Zinc oxide and titanium dioxide are physical blockers that can sometimes leave a chalky cast, but they are easily the safest and most effective at protecting you from the sun. Chemical sunscreens are slowly falling out of favor as more scientists unearth the rather troubling side-effects some of these ingredients have on human health. Remember to reapply your sunscreen every two to three hours, especially if you’re very active and sweating throughout the day!
Did you know a window tint can block up to 80% of solar heat? This is even before we get into the benefits of eliminating the UV rays that pass through your office or studio space, putting you in a much better position to practice your safety routine without breaking the bank. Solar control glass tinting is designed very carefully, able to be fitted onto any window or panel with ease. Your rooms will be cooler and you’ll start to feel the difference in your day-to-day life in no time at all. Even your bills can feel a positive impact from tinted windows!
An interesting survey found you can save as much as 40% on your utility bill by adding a professional window tint. Another survey by the international Window Film Association saw over 50% of respondents saying they actively worry about the sun fading their drapes and home furnishings. Chalk that up to another study done by the same company finding two-thirds of American adults incorrectly believe that being inside keeps them fully safe from the sun and the gift just keeps on giving! A professional window tint takes little time to install and can be used year-round.
Save money on your utility bill and keep yourself from sun exposure with a professional window tint this year. You’ll never have to worry about the sun putting a glare on your life again!
