Protect your Skin with Window Film

Protect your Skin

Skin DamageEffects of direct sunlight

During summer when we go out outside we protect ourselves with clothing, sunglasses, hats and sunscreen - we know the damage the sun can cause our skin.

However, we are not only exposed to sunlight when we venture outside - glazing in windows and doors allow the suns rays to reach us while we are indoors too.

Ultraviolet radiation is present in sunlight all year round - and reaches us even when it is cloudy.


UV Rays have many negative effects on our skin, they;

  • Cause 90% of all premature skin aging and wrinkles
  • Destroy Vitamin A in the skin, which contributes to cell damage
  • Damage collagen, the structural protein that keeps skin cells firm, causing wrinkles and sagging.
  • Are increasingly being linked to skin cancer
