How To Protect Yourself from The Adverse Effects of Excessive UV Light Exposure

It is not new knowledge that excessive exposure to the sun can have harmful effects on the human body and even put people at greater risk for skin cancer. But while the amount of UV exposure you get will depend on the length of time you are exposed to the sun, it will also depend on other factors. Such factors include the strength of the rays (UV radiation is strongest in the middle of the day) and the amount of protection you are getting from your clothing and sunscreen.

But sun exposure does not only happen when you are outdoors and in direct sunlight; it can also occur when you are under shade, inside your vehicle or home, or even during cloudy days. Unfortunately, shade does not provide you complete protection from UV radiation as you can get exposed to at least 50% of it from reflected and scattered light. In addition, you are also not completely protected from UV rays even on cloudy days, as up to 95% of harmful UV rays can still penetrate the cloud cover.

Much like wearing long sleeves and caps and applying sunscreen when going outside to protect your skin from the sun, you can also invest in accessories like window tints to protect yourself from excessive exposure to UV rays while inside your vehicle or home. Window tinting in Gloucester can block UV rays from penetrating the windows of your house and car.

Various reputable window tinting companies like Global Tint UK provide residential window tinting and car tinting in Luton. Installing window tints will allow you not only to block harmful UV rays but also protect yourself from the risks they pose on your skin and eyes.
