Skin Cancer and Window Tint
The Skin Cancer Foundation recommends window tint as part of a comprehensive sun protection program. This recommendation often comes as a surprise because most people think only of outdoor sun safety when they think of skin cancer prevention. While wearing sunscreen, covering up and staying in the shade are all keys to helping protect against the sun’s Ultraviolet Rays (UV) while outside, you should consider a more complete approach to prevention that includes protecting yourself and your family while indoors, especially on the road.
Protection in Your Vehicle
High performance window tint offers all day skin protection which helps prevent skin cancer. LLumar window tint acts as a "sunscreen" providing daily sun protection with a one-time application. It blocks more than 99% of harmful UV rays and offers a long-term solution to help prevent skin cancer. But not everyone prefers the look of traditional window tint. While all products in the LLumar window tint line offer UV protection, the AIR80 clear tint appeals to those who do not want the darker window appearance or where the use of dark window tint is prohibited by state laws. Use this film viewer to see how the window tint would look on your vehicle’s windows.
Facts about Sun Damage and Driving
Damage from certain kinds of ultraviolet rays is cumulative. “UVA rays penetrate deep into the skin and can silently accelerate the aging process, cause wrinkles and even skin cancer,” says Dr. Dee Anna Glaser, vice- chair of the dermatology department at St. Louis University. Unlike UVB rays which create immediate effects like blistering and burns, UVA rays create long term damage that is not immediately noticeable. “That’s why many people don’t realize their skin is getting damaged from sitting near windows in cars or even at their desks at work,” says Dr. Glaser.
According to The Skin Cancer Foundation:
One in five Americans will develop skin cancer in the course of their lifetime.
Research shows that drivers in the U.S. have a higher rate of skin cancer on their left side due to exposure while driving.
UVA rays account for 90% of the sun’s most damaging rays and are present all day, every day of the year.
