The warmth of the summer months as well as the idea of enjoying time outside or partaking in outdoor activities are what people look forward to during the summer season. However, during this season, the UV radiation from the sun is stronger. And spending too much time under the sun can result in excessive exposure to UV radiation, which can put people at greater risk for skin cancer or trigger short-term or long-term damage to their skin and eyes.
If you are going outside and cannot avoid staying in the sun for long hours, the best way to protect yourself from UV rays is wearing long-sleeved clothing, a hat or cap, and UV-attenuating sunglasses, as well as applying sunscreen.
However, UV light exposure does not only occur when you are outside, direct in sunlight. You can also get exposed to the sun’s UV radiation even while you are inside your vehicle or home, as UV radiation can still penetrate through windows.
Window tinting in Portsmouth can be an excellent investment. Installing window tints not only enhances the aesthetic appeal of your home but can also help block harmful UV rays from penetrating inside your home.
This also goes for car window tinting in Southampton; your car window tints will protect your skin and eyes from getting too much UV light exposure, particularly when you are driving in the middle of the day, which is the time when UV rays are strongest.
