In the last blog post, we talked about how to protect your furniture from fading. This time, we’ll talk about how to protect yourself from sun damage. We are exposed to the sun for so much longer each day than we think. Most people believe that they get most of their sun exposure from going to the beach and sunbathing but this isn’t true! We get exposed to the sun most of the time from our day to day activities including the safety of our own homes!
Install Home Window Films
We aren’t too far away from home window films becoming standard. They have a wide range of benefits such as increasing energy efficiency, saving you money, protecting your furniture from fading. They will also protect your eyes and skin from excess sun damage. Installing home window tinting is a no-brainer for new families with young children who have just settled into their new home.
Always Wear Sunscreen
up to 80% of a person’s sun exposure is outside of lying around on a beach. That means we are getting bombarded and may not even really notice it. On top of installing home window film in your home and car, wearing sunscreen can offer an extra layer fo protection as you run everyday errands in and around your home.
Sunglasses can help prevent excess sun damage in and around the eyes. The skin around the eyes need more hydration and are one of the first areas to show the effects of aging. Wearing larger sunglasses can help prevent this.
UV rays are at full-strength between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. so it’s best to make sure you are well equipped with sunscreen, home window film, car window film, sunglasses, and a hat. We’ve met families who are so thankful after we install window tint in their kid’s toy room that at one point was unusable thanks to mid-afternoon sun heating up the room.
Your lips are susceptible to sun damage as well. Wear lip balm with sunscreen in them to prevent any long-term signs of aging.
The above suggestions, combined with your home window film, will give you the utmost protection against UV rays. Give us a call if you have any questions are would like to move forwards with installation.
