Outdoor sun protection with an arsenal of broad-spectrum sunscreen, UV protective sunglasses, and a wide-brimmed sun hat is essential to protect you and your family from the sun’s harmful ultraviolet rays (UVR). While we understand that safety precautions are important for outdoor sun exposure, what about indoor protection? You may not realize it, but the sunshine streaming through your home’s windows can be just as damaging as direct outdoor exposure.
Ultraviolet radiation is sneaky, it can bounce off surfaces and penetrate glass to find you. Unprotected UVR exposure indoors will contribute to daily exposure accumulation, leaving you and your family vulnerable to skin damage, photoaging, eye damage, and skin cancer. The Skin Cancer Foundation recommends UV-blocking window film for solar reflection as a cost-effective solution to protect your family and your home from indoor ultraviolet exposure.
