Safe driving for your skin? A new way to be careful on the road
Spring is already here and summer’s just around the corner. For many, that means hopping in the car for a trip to the beach, lake or other getaway. By now, we all know that using sunscreen when outside, particularly during summer months in daylight is essential to stave off wrinkles and skin cancer. But wait, and back up a minute to your driving. Are you being exposed to harmful UV radiation in the driver’s seat?
Most auto manufacturers laminate windshields with a UV light filter, the side windows only protect you against UVB light, but not UVA light. While UVB light causes sunburns, UVA penetrates the skin more deeply and can cause problems down the road.
PLAY IT SAFE... Apply sunscreen on any exposed area before driving. We recommend KenetMD's En Garde Moisture with SPF 30 (for all skin types) EVERY DAY. Oil-free, and Vitamin C-enriched it protects against the sun’s harmful rays and also helps repair sun damage.
