(NAPSI)—The average American spends more than 101 minutes a day in a car. Unfortunately, what many drivers and passengers fail to realize is that when they are in a car, not all the danger they face is on the road.

Both drivers and passengers are often exposed to harmful ultraviolet A (UVA) rays, particularly from the side windows of the cars in which they ride.

“Damage from certain kinds of ultraviolet rays is cumulative,” says Dr. Dee Anna Glaser, vice chair of the dermatology department at St. Louis University. “These rays penetrate deep into the skin and can silently accelerate the aging process, cause wrinkles and even skin cancer.”

Fortunately, adding a UVA-blocking film or tint to car windows can be an effective way to help block damaging rays and protect yourself while you drive.

For example, a range of window film options, sold under the brand name LLumar, provide UV protection. There’s even a clear film that appeals to those who do not want a darker window appearance, or where the use of dark films is prohibited by state law. When applied over ordinary automotive glass, this film’s virtually invisible protection blocks more than 99 percent of harmful UV rays.* LLumar window film acts as “sunscreen”—offering daily sun protection with a one-time application.
