UV rays

The summer heat has once again bloomed on our windows and has increased the risk of harmful sun raises, and as we know those harmful sun rays can damage our skin and leave us with dark patches, sunburns, and many other skin disorders that start to line up one after another due to those harmful sun rays. Thus to avoid all those things we apply sunscreen on our skin which restricts harmful UV rays from penetrating our skin and damaging it in any way possible. Well, it is true that sunscreen protects us from the harmful rays outside the shade but is it really necessary for us to wear sunscreen whenever we are indoors? 

Recent research has been conducted to determine whether or not sunscreen should be used indoors, particularly in places where light exposure is high. In this article, we will explore the potential dangers of unprotected light exposure, discuss the effectiveness of indoor sunscreen use, and look at possible alternatives to traditional sunscreens.

Is sunscreen necessary indoors as well?

The answer is yes! While it’s true that UVB rays are blocked by windows, UVA rays still penetrate through glass and can have damaging effects on the skin. Not only do these rays cause damage to the skin’s surface, but they also penetrate deeper into the layers of the skin, leading to more serious conditions like melanoma. That means even if you spend most of your day inside near a window or under artificial light sources like fluorescent bulbs or computer screens – sunscreen should still be a part of your daily routine.

Bottom line:

It is clear that sunscreen is an important protection from skin cancer and other sun-related skin issues. While the majority of sunscreen’s protection is gained from spending time outdoors, there are some sources of UV radiation that can penetrate through windows. Therefore, for those who are concerned about protecting their skin, sunscreen should be worn indoors as well as outdoors. Care should also be taken to reapply sunscreen regularly when indoors or outdoors, regardless of the amount of exposure to sunlight.
