In Colorado, we are blessed to have many sunny days throughout the year. That may be one reason you spy so many vehicles with tinted windows on Colorado’s roadways. One of the many benefits of having tinted windows in your vehicle is the protection window tint offers for your skin. Most people think being outdoors in the sun is the only time they need to think of taking steps to prevent their skin from the danger of overexposure to harmful UV rays that may result in skin cancer.
If you haven’t thought about tinting your vehicle windows to help protect yourself and your loved ones against skin cancer, it may help to know that sometimes, we get more exposure to the sun’s rays than we realize, especially at higher altitudes. Because of this, the Skin Cancer Foundation recommends vehicle window tinting as one step in the right direction when formulating a comprehensive sun protection program for yourself and your family. Wearing sunscreen while outdoors, donning a visor or hat whenever possible, and seeking shade are all important steps to take when protecting yourself against the sun’s Ultraviolet Rays (UV) rays, and tinting your car windows is another great way to keep your vehicle occupants protected.
On their website, the Skin Cancer Foundation states the following: “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 both your skin and your belongings.”
