It is important to practice sun safety when you are in the car. You might drive around town to get to and from work or school, or maybe even just for a joy ride. But you get a lot of sun exposure when driving, and that puts you at an increased risk of skin cancer. Focus on your health by learning how to protect yourself from the sun while you're in the car.
You can have window film installed on your car so that you have better protection against the sun. More doctors are recommending window tinting because it has been proven to block more than 99 percent of the sun's UV rays. At Executive Motorsports, we offer some of the top brands on the market, including Clearmax and Solarmatrix.
In addition to providing sun protection, window tinting can also block a lot of glare and heat. It can protect against accidents from the glare reduction, and the darker colored windows enhances your privacy. With professional installation, you can also ensure it is going to look great and prevent cracking and fading.
Whether it is hot out or not, it’s possible to get a sunburn driving around in your car. The sun is coming at you from all angles. If you have ever noticed, the arm that is closest to the window may have a better tan than the rest of your body. That’s because it’s getting a lot of sun. Keeping a tube of sunscreen in your car can be a good habit to get into. You can apply it at any time so you don’t have to worry about getting a sunburn.
Many doctors will recommend wearing sunscreen all the time, not just when spending time in the sun. It is a common misconception that you can’t get sunburned while in the car because the glass protects you. In reality, the sun's UV rays easily penetrate the glass. This is why it’s recommended to tint your windows as window film can block UV rays from penetrating the glass. Combined with the sunscreen, it can provide peace of mind knowing you’re not going to get sunburned in the car.
Choose the Right Car
If you are more susceptible to the sun, because you have fair skin or have a medical condition where a doctor has advised you to stay out of the sun, you want to choose the best car. Convertibles and cars with sunroofs may not be the best for you. If you do have one of these features on your car, keep the roof closed so you are better protected.
