Get Skin Protection While Driving

The average American worker spends the equivalent of an entire week in their car commuting to work each year (US Census bureau). Most people don’t realize that the glass in their automobile protects them from UVB rays only, those that cause sunburn. Only 10% of side windows provide UVA protection1, the rays that cause aging and skin cancer. Cumulative exposure to UVA is directly linked to skin cancer, premature aging, and even cataracts.

Solar Gard window film protects from both UVA and UVB ultraviolet rays. According to the American Academy of Dermatology, there is a direct link between more time spent driving an automobile and a higher incidence of left-sided skin cancers. Although all types of skin cancer increase with exposure to unprotected skin, particularly common among drivers is a form of melanoma that is caused by cumulative UVA exposure rather than the more common form of melanoma that occurs from intense, intermittent sun exposure.
