Skin Cancer Awareness Month: Solar Film, A Secret Ingredient to Protect Your Skin

AZ Solar Control Window Tinting

May is Skin Cancer Awareness Month, a time to bring the dangers of skin cancer into focus, especially as we prepare for more time in the sun in the coming months. The goal is to help the public understand what skin cancer is, approaches to screenings and prevention and treatment options. Skin cancer remains a significant health concern, and nearly 5 million people are treated each year for the disease.

Tips for Preventing Skin Cancer

There are a number of ways that you can protect your skin from damage, especially as you head out for a day at the beach or an endless soak in the sun. Below are prevention tips from SkinCancer.org:

  • Use a broad-spectrum (UVA/UVB) sunscreen with an SPF of 15 or higher every day.
  • Apply one ounce of sunscreen to your entire body 30 minutes before heading outdoors. Reapply every two hours or after swimming.
  • Stay in the shade, particularly between 10 am and 4 pm.
  • Cover up with breathable, loose-fitting clothing, a wide-brimmed hat and UV-blocking sunglasses.
  • Do not allow yourself to burn.
  • Never use UV tanning beds.
  • Examine your skin each month.
  • See your physician each year for a skin exam.

Invisible UV Rays Can Pose a Problem

Even though you’ll be spending more time outdoors in the coming months, protecting your skin is something that should be done year round, especially in the hot, desert states. What people don’t realize is that harmful, cancer-causing UV rays can enter the home, workplace or car. You may think you’re doing everything you can to protect yourself, but sitting by a large window at work all day or enjoying hours on the couch in front of the window at home could put you at risk.

What is the solution? Solar control window film.

Protect Your Health with Solar Window Tinting

Solar film can be easily applied to windows, and thanks to new technology, you don’t have to worry about the film peeling or bubbling. When it’s applied by an experienced installer, the film will last for decades and provide you with superior protection. The solar film from AZ Glass Tinting blocks 99% of UV rays. Just imagine all the benefits this could bring.

  • Fade protection for carpeting, drapes, furnishings.
  • Superior skin protection throughout the day.
  • Reduced premature aging.
  • Stop almost ALL UV rays from entering the home or workplace.
  • Improve comfort levels in the home.

Don’t put your health at risk. By using sunscreen every day, you reduce your risk of developing skin cancer by 50%. Imagine the difference that window film can make, too!
