Avoid Premature Skin Photo-Aging

car windowSunscreen is one very important protective device car manufacturers have forgotten. Sounds like a strange request? Well, did you know that you can get significant sun damage through the window glass in cars? Noted dermatologist, Dr. Neil Schultz explains the inherent dangers to drivers and passengers alike of both premature skin photo-aging and skin cancer. While all glass blocks the burning UVB rays, it still allows 60% of the damaging UVA rays through. Although usually the front windshield is laminated with adequate protection against UVA, not so with the other car windows. To protect yourself from the damaging sun’s rays streaming in through other windows, you need sunscreen with UVA protection whenever you are in your car. So it might be a good idea to keep some sunscreen handy in your glove compartment. And then, don’t forget to use it on yourself . . .  and your precious cargo.


Lois W. Stern is the author of two books on physical beauty: Sex, Lies and Cosmetic Surgery and Tick Tock, Stop the Clock ~ Getting Pretty on Your Lunch Hour as well as a growing series of Tales2Inspire books of inspiring short stories.
